Thank you for visiting us at the Doggie Street Festival
Early cancer detection in dogs with a simple blood draw is now available through select veterinary clinics. Use our clinic locator map to see if there is an OncoK9® provider in your area.
If you are unable to locate a veterinary clinic, or you would prefer to see your own vet, please join our interest list and share an OncoK9 brochure with your veterinarian.
Early Cancer Detection in Dogs with a Simple Blood Draw
OncoK9 is a first-in-class multi-cancer early detection (MCED) test. Pet parents get mammograms and colonoscopies to help detect cancer early. Now, our dogs have OncoK9, a cancer screening test developed specifically for them.
Most cancer tests are either invasive (like a tissue biopsy) or require special equipment (like imaging). OncoK9 requires only a simple blood draw. The sample collection can take place during the same visit when the veterinarian prescribes the test.
OncoK9 has demonstrated cancer signal detection in 30 different cancer types, including 8 of the most common cancers in dogs.
OncoK9 interrogates millions of cell-free DNA fragments in each blood sample, using sophisticated next-generation sequencing technology and bioinformatics algorithms to detect genomic alterations associated with cancer.
By identifying cancer signal in cell-free DNA extracted from a blood sample, OncoK9 may allow for earlier detection of cancer, before the onset of clinical signs.
