Description

Order a rabbit allergy IgE blood test to detect an allergy to rabbits. This test measures the amount of allergen-specific antibodies in a blood sample.

While pet allergies are generally associated with dogs and cats, rabbits may also trigger an allergic reaction for some individuals. The key allergens from rabbits are derived from the shedding of dander or dead skin flakes and their urine. Furthermore, during self-cleaning, every lick of the rabbit's tongue leaves saliva on its fur, which flakes off when it dries and becomes airborne, circulating throughout the surroundings.

Allergies may become apparent after exposure to rabbits due to handling them, cleaning their cages, or being in the area where the allergens have circulated.

An allergy to rabbits triggers a reaction in an individual's immune system. The body views certain substances as toxic and produces IgE antibodies to these contaminants. These antibodies cause histamine to be released, which will cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Allergy symptoms vary from one individual to the next ranging from mild to severe reactions, which can be experienced within minutes to hours after exposure. Common symptoms of a rabbit allergy may include one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Coughing
  • Congestion
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Eczema
  • Hives
  • Facial pressure or pain
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy or watery eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Swelling that looks blue under the eyes
