(Chelsea Update would like to thank Shayla Lane for the information in this story.)
Lane Animal Hospital is excited to offer the first non-invasive canine cancer screening available, Nu.Q.
For the next 8 weeks you are able to take advantage of the trial we are participating in and complete this lab test for $40.
It can be done on its own, or along with your dog’s annual bloodwork.
Pet must be fasted for minimum of 4 hours prior to the test for accurate results.
Currently, the test is only available for canines, hopefully our feline companions have the opportunity to be screened with this DNA technology soon.
