What is Cancer Screening?

Just like in people, cancer screening should be an important part of preventive care in dogs; the goal is to look for cancer when your pet is feeling well, before they start to show any clinical signs.

During wellness visits, your veterinarian may look for early signs of cancer in your dog by performing a thorough physical exam and asking you about any concerning observations. Your veterinarian may also perform routine blood and imaging tests, and may recommend OncoK9 - a new blood test that could detect cancer before your dog shows any clinical signs.

Why is Early Cancer Detection Important?

Early detection and treatment are the best ways to manage cancer in pets... cancer is frequently treatable and early diagnosis will aid your veterinarian in delivering the best care possible.

What is OncoK9?

The OncoK9 liquid biopsy test uses a simple blood draw to detect abnormal DNA released into circulation by cancer cells.

Simple blood draw

Simple
Blood Draw

OncoK9 requires only a simple blood draw. The sample collection can take place during the same visit when the veterinarian prescribes the test.

Multi-cancer coverage

Multi-Cancer
Coverage

OncoK9 can detect 30 different types of cancer, including 8 of the most common cancers in dogs.

Cutting-edge technology

Cutting-Edge
Technology

OncoK9 uses state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to detect changes in DNA that are indicative of cancer.

Early detection

Detection

OncoK9 may help detect cancer early, when your dog still looks healthy and has the best chance of defeating the disease.

Which Dogs May Benefit From Cancer Screening Using OncoK9?

All Dogs Age 7 and Older

Older dogs are at higher risk of cancer, regardless of breed. Consider adding OncoK9 to their routine wellness exams.

Dogs 7 and Older Have a Higher Risk of Cancer

Younger Dogs from Breeds at Higher Risk of Cancer

Certain breeds have a higher lifetime risk of cancer and/or have a higher risk of being diagnosed at an earlier age.
