    Hi all, my vet suggested doing an environmental allergy test which is said was 90% accurate to determine if my baby has environmental allergies. He said the food allergy test isn't nearly as accurate. Has anyone done the environmental allergy test with good results?

    @Furballsmom thanks! I have spoken to two and they didn't see it causing any harm. That can even happen with hydrolyzed protein food?
