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.

Dr. Andi Flory
Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of PetDx

Dr. Flory joins Mike Janela to answer viewer questions about canine cancer and how a new liquid biopsy test enables veterinarians to detect cancer in dogs with a simple blood draw.

What is OncoK9?

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

Early detection

Early
Detection

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

Simple blood draw

Simple
Blood Draw

OncoK9 requires only a simple blood draw. The sample collection can take place during a routine visit to the clinic with no fasting beforehand.

Multi-cancer coverage

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

Cutting-edge technology

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

Clinically validated

OncoK9 was validated with the largest clinical study ever performed in veterinary cancer diagnostics.

Is OncoK9 Right for My Dog?

Dogs over the age of 7 have a 9x higher risk of developing cancer, and screening with OncoK9 is recommended for all dogs starting at age 7. Furthermore, dogs belonging to certain breeds are more likely to develop cancer during their lifetime and/or are known to develop cancer earlier in life; in some cases, starting cancer screening as early as age 4 is recommended. Younger dogs and lower-risk breeds are less likely to develop the disease, but cancer could happen to any dog.

The OncoK9 Cancer SAFE recommendations are intended for dogs one year of age and older, in which cancer is not currently suspected. If your dog is exhibiting signs of cancer, please consult with your veterinarian. To review OncoK9 Cancer SAFE disclosures, please visit: oncok9.info/cancer-safe-disclosures.

OncoK9 requires a blood collection performed under the care of a licensed veterinarian, and test results are returned to the veterinarian for communication to the pet owner. As with any laboratory test, OncoK9 results should be interpreted by a veterinarian in the context of each patient's medical history and clinical presentation. Test failures and false positive or false negative results may occur. To review OncoK9 test limitations and risks, please visit: oncok9.info/disclosures.
