Dr. Sherebrin is participating in a very exciting study on a simple blood test to detect cancer in dogs and cats. The OncoPeT RECAF test is now available. Please contact the Secord Animal Clinic at 416-486-1700 for more information on the study and how to have your pet enrolled.
Remember, the test is still in the validation stage; in preliminary tests it has detected 85 percent of a variety of cancers in dogs at the 95 percent specificity level. No information is available yet on the accuracy in cats.
