FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 12:45 PM - 1:45 PM HEMISFAIR BALLROOM 1 A Blood Test Can Do That? Liquid Biopsy to Detect and Monitor Cancer in Dogs. Ashley Phelps-Dunn, DVM Has an owner ever asked you about cancer screening in their healthy dog because they’ve lost a dog to cancer in the past? Have you ever discovered a splenic mass and the owners weren’t sure whether to proceed with surgery? After treating a dog for cancer, have you ever wished there was an easier way to monitor for recurrence of disease? Liquid biopsy offers veterinarians and veterinary specialists a non-invasive option for cancer detection and monitoring using a simple blood draw. This session will use case studies to explore liquid biopsy applications across the spectrum of cancer care: as a screening tool for dogs with no current suspicion of cancer, as an aid in diagnosis for dogs in which cancer is on the list of differentials, as a tool to detect residual disease following surgery, and as a means of monitoring for recurrence of disease throughout and following therapy.
