Has anyone had experience with Allergy clinics? What do they do and how do they test for allergies? Is it painful?
I am thinking of taking Mimi to an Allergy clinic because I don't know what it is that causes her to have a rash on her chest from time to time. I am sure it is something she eats (possibly too much of) or her body has contact with. She eats well and is fine when we take her to the park - she plays, chases the ball, swims in the lake, etc.. but when we get home, she goes under the bed and whenever I come to see her, she starts shaking - almost as though she is scared of me. This, she does with others too. We cannot come close to her as she retrieves in some place where we cannot access her. Mimi is the type that suffers in silence. The only way I know something is up is when she hides. This has been going on for a couple of days now and I worry about her.
Last night, she attempted to play ball with me as per her usual old self (I was ecstatic) I threw the ball in the hallway for her to fetch which she did a couple of times and the third time, when she got to it, she stopped as if something happened (pain?) turned around and ran upstairs under the bed.
Has anyone experienced this?
