Conference Program Session

Friday, September 22, 2023 @ 12:46 PM

  • Sponsor: PetDx Lunch & Learn
  • Location: Hemisfair Ballroom 1
  • Title: A Blood Test Can Do That? Liquid Biopsy to Detect and Monitor Cancer in Dogs
  • Speaker: Ashley Phelps-Dunn, DVM, PetDx Medical Science Liaison
  • Program Description: Has an owner ever asked you about cancer screening in their healthy dog because they’ve lost a dog to cancer in the past? Have you ever discovered a splenic mass and the owners weren’t sure whether to proceed with surgery? After treating a dog for cancer, have you ever wished there was an easier way to monitor for recurrence of disease? Liquid biopsy offers veterinarians and veterinary specialists a non-invasive option for cancer detection and monitoring using a simple blood draw. This session will use case studies to explore liquid biopsy applications across the spectrum of cancer care: as a screening tool for dogs with no current suspicion of cancer, as an aid in diagnosis for dogs in which cancer is on the list of differentials, as a tool to detect residual disease following surgery, and as a means of monitoring for recurrence of disease throughout and following therapy.
