Even low-allergen matings have considerable variations in Fel-D1 allergen. Families with moderate to severe cat allergies may want to consider purchasing a tested kitten, as many kittens are sold before 12 weeks of age, and before people begin to have allergic reactions.

Along with the costs of multiple samples, there are hidden costs involved in testing kittens. These include keeping kittens longer than normal, waiting until the kittens are 14 weeks of age before allowing kitten selection, and poor sales on kittens with normal allergen levels. 

Because of the cost of multiple tests and lab fees, quite a few Siberian catteries in United States are testing using old methods that we designed in 2002 for experimental use on adult cats only.  We stopped using those tests, as the error rate exceeds 40% in kittens and 20% in adult cats.   

We provide the only accurate test method for saliva testing FEL D1 in kittens.  If you have questions as to whether a cattery is licensed and registered with us, please contact us.

Many catteries have offered testing in the past. The Siberian catteries who have tested within the past year, and are currently offering Fel d1 testing of kittens are listed below.
