Oncotect Case Studies

See how veterinarians and pet owners alike are using Oncotect as an important cancer screening tool.

In four different use cases, Oncotect played a crucial role in cancer detection for pet owners and veterinarians.

Brody

9 yr old, Labrador Retriever

Brody - An Oncotect Case Study

Brody, a 9-year-old neutered male Labrador Retriever, was taken to the veterinarian for a routine senior dog check-up. During the examination, a suspicious mass was detected on his spleen. To determine the nature of the mass before undergoing more invasive and costly diagnostic tests, the veterinarian recommended the Oncotect test. The results showed a low-risk value of -.044, indicating that there was no evidence of cancer. As a result, the next step was a splenectomy, which confirmed that the mass was benign. The Oncotect test proved to be a valuable tool in guiding the next steps of Brody's health journey and ensuring his well-being.

Cassie

9 yr old, Schnoodle

Cassie - An Oncotect Case Study

Cassie, a 9-year-old spayed female Schnoodle, was taken to the veterinarian for a routine senior dog check-up. During an ultrasound, a large mass was detected on her liver. To confirm or deny the suspicion of cancer before opting for more invasive and costly diagnostic tests, the vet recommended the Oncotect test. The results showed a low-risk value of -.043, indicating that it was less likely to be metastatic. The Oncotect test denied the suspicion of cancer. A biopsy was recommended and performed, confirming that the mass was benign. The Oncotect test provided valuable insight into Cassie's health and helped guide the next steps in her care.

Lucy

12 yr old, Terrier Mix

Brody - An Oncotect Case Study

Lucy, a 12-year-old spayed female terrier mix, came in for an annual wellness check. During the examination, a bump was found on her side and was aspirated as a Mast Cell Tumor (MCT). To confirm or deny the suspicion of MCT before opting for more expensive and invasive diagnostic tests, the veterinarian recommended the Oncotect test. The results showed a high-risk value of .116, confirming the suspicion of MCT. The veterinarian recommended an abdominal ultrasound to check for cancer elsewhere, but the owner decided not to follow up due to Lucy's age. The Oncotect test provided valuable insight into Lucy's health and helped guide the next steps in her care.

Wylie

12 yr old, Labrador Retriever

Wylie - An Oncotect Case Study

Wylie, a 12-year-old spayed female Labrador Retriever, underwent a successful removal of a Mast Cell Tumor (MCT). To confirm if the cancer had spread to other areas, the veterinarian recommended the Oncotect test. The results showed a low-risk value of .002, indicating that the MCT was successfully removed and did not spread. The veterinarian was assured by the test results, and Wylie has been healthy. The Oncotect test serves as a valuable monitoring tool in ensuring Wylie's continued good health.
