my dog has had numerous allergy-related ear,tonsil,infections.my Vet decided to get to the root of the problem, which is allergies. She had my dog tested to see what she is allergic to and is now taking shots for desensitization to what she is allergic to. I now have changed her diet to a grain free diet and she is beginning to improve remarkably. I appreciate this insurance for I would have not been able to financially fund this myself. It has really benefited my allergy-prone pom! In the long run, less vet bills for tonsillitis!!
