In This Episode

In this episode of the Veterinary Innovation Podcast, Shawn Wilkie and Dr. Ivan Zak interview Dr. Alejandro Bernal, the CEO of PetDx. PetDx focuses on diagnosing cancer in pets using genomics and liquid biopsy tests.

Dr. Bernal explains the importance of early cancer detection in dogs, given that cancer is the leading cause of death in canines. They also discuss PetDx’s flagship product, OncoK9, the ONLY test in the industry that can be used in both healthy and sick dogs, enabling veterinarians to detect cancer early. PetDx recently introduced a new test called OncoK9 Screen, which provides high sensitivity and detects common cancers that may be challenging to find during a physical exam.

Dr. Bernal recommends “The One Truth” by Jon Gordon, inspired by the Finding Mastery Podcast hosted by Dr. Michael Gervais.
