Cancer is the most common cause of death in dogs over the age of 2 years in the US.
Up to 50% of all dogs over the age of 10 will develop cancer in their lifetimes.
Approximately 6 million out of 77 million dogs in the US are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Earlier detection of cancer can not only help save lives, it can also improve the quality of life of the dog and more quality time with its owner.
Yet, as of today, unlike the human healthcare world where screening for certain cancers is commonplace (mammogram for breast cancer, colonoscopy for colorectal cancer, HPV for cervical cancer, to name but a few) there are few cancer screening tests on the veterinary market.
Currently, dogs are typically diagnosed when they are unwell or there is a suspicion of cancer. Even then dogs suspected of having cancer are required to undergo a variety of diagnostic tests that may be expensive, time consuming, and painful for the animal.
Introducing the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Screening Test
We hope to change this with the introduction of the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Screening Test. A simple, cost effective, easy to use screening blood test to be used with the annual wellness check for older dogs (7 years and older). It may also be a complementary test for younger dogs (4 years and older) of breeds with an increased risk for developing cancer in their lifetimes such as, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, French Bulldogs, Boxers, Beagles, German Shepherds, Bernese Mountain dogs, Siberian Huskies, Rottweilers, Great Danes, Irish Wolfhounds, Scottish Deerhounds, Mastiffs and Flat Coated Retrievers.
