Cancer in dogs: How and when is it detected and is there room for improvement?
Major veterinary medical organizations recognize the importance of early cancer detection in dogs. However, guidelines-driven screening protocols for early cancer detection are lacking and cancer is often detected at advanced stages. This webinar will examine data from over 350 cancer-diagnosed dogs to establish how the presenting complaint came to attention and led to a definitive diagnosis of cancer in these patients.
Additionally, the presentation will review the typical age at which cancer is diagnosed in dogs from a cohort of over 3,000 cancer-diagnosed patients. Using this data, an “age to start cancer screening” can be recommended, based on an individual dog’s breed or weight. The webinar will conclude with a discussion of how blood-based liquid biopsy testing may offer a convenient, non-invasive, screening tool to aid in the earlier identification of cancer in dogs.
The presenter is Angela McCleary-Wheeler, DVM, PhD, DACVIM (Oncology).
