In This Episode

Cancer is arguably the biggest disease facing living things, and yet early identification of, and screening for, cancer in dogs is not something that was previously possible. Early diagnoses produce better outcomes, and the cutting edge of technology and genomics are making those diagnoses possible.

This week on the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn and Ivan welcome Dr. Lauren Holtvoigt, Vice President of Sales and Commercial Development, Co-Founder at PetDx, to talk about liquid biopsy and early cancer diagnosis in veterinary medicine, the ability to screen for cancer in dogs, and some of the different types of cancer that the test can identify.

Dr. Holtvoigt recommends The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World by Desmond Tutu, the Dalai Lama & Douglas Abrams
