Abstract

An 11-yr-old female black leopard (Panthera pardus) was presented with pruritus and intermittent gastrointestinal distress for a duration of 18 mo. Dietary elimination trial and challenge confirmed food hypersensitivity. Milder and persistent pruritus, while consuming a strict elimination diet, confirmed atopic dermatitis also was related to airborne environmental triggers identified by intradermal allergy testing. Ultimately, atopy was controlled successfully by antihistamines and transmucosal immunotherapy for 7 yr after diagnosis.
