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. 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.
OncoK9 may help detect cancer early, when your dog still looks healthy and has the best chance of defeating the disease.
OncoK9 requires only a simple blood draw. The sample collection can take place during a routine visit to the clinic with no fasting beforehand.
OncoK9 can detect 30 different types of cancer, including 8 of the most common cancers in dogs.
OncoK9 uses state-of-the-art next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to detect changes in DNA that are indicative of cancer.
OncoK9 was validated with the largest clinical study ever performed in veterinary cancer diagnostics.
