CANINE CANCER SCREENING TESTS
OncoK9® Cancer Screening Tests
OncoK9® is a revolutionary new test that enables us to screen your dog for cancer before the onset of clinical signs.
Like humans, dogs have a 1-in-3 lifetime risk of getting cancer, and approximately 6 million dogs are newly-diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States.
Similar to cancer screening in humans, screening in dogs can help us spot cancer earlier and create a treatment plan that could provide better outcomes. Without early detection, cancer may only be diagnosed at an advanced stage, when fewer treatment options are available. Having as much insight as possible into your dog’s health can help you make the most informed decisions at the right time, and may give your dog the opportunity to spend a longer and healthier life with his or her family.
This test requires a simple blood draw — making it easy to perform during a routine wellness visit.
