A Blood Test for Dog Cancer? Meet OncoK9 | Dr. Andi Flory

Thanks to a little dog named Poppy, we now have a blood test that can detect dog cancer before the dog experiences any symptoms.


Listen in to learn how the OncoK9 blood test by PetDx uses next-generation sequencing to determine if your apparently healthy dog has cancer DNA floating around in her body. While this test won’t give you a diagnosis, their “liquid biopsy” can be used as a screening test to find cancer before it causes symptoms of illness, letting you get a head start on treatment for your dog.

This simple blood draw is one of the newest tools for dog lovers to use to battle canine cancer.
