  • How does OncoGuarDx work?
    OncoGuarDx test analyzes the dog philtrum DNA using an advanced lateral flow device and can score the stress level in connection to three defined physical conditions. The entire test takes less than 10 minutes to complete at home or in doctor’s office.
  • OncoGuarDx seems very affordable. What’s the catch?
    There is no catch.  In the past decade there have been numerous rapid advancements in science and high scale quality production.  This allows us to mass produce our product with a very high quality assurance.   OncoGuarDx’s technique is compatible to lateral flow assay and amenable to high-throughput production, making affordable personal medicine a reality.
  • Why do I need OncoGuarDx as a dog owner?
    Stress is harmful and cancer is insidious. As a dog owner, you need to be aware of your dog’s stress level and to accurately predict if cancer is likely to occur.  After all, a dog will never come to you and tell you he is feeling sick.
  • How often should I use OncoGuarDx?
    We recommend that you use it once every two months under normal conditions or every other week if your pet is shown to be undergoing stress.
  • Is OncoGuarDx safe for my dog?
    Yes OncoGuarDx is a non-invasive test and thus is completely safe to your dog.
  • Does OncoGuarDx contain caffeine or any allergenic agents?
    OncoGuraDx contains no caffeine and employs no foreign DNA probe molecules that are allergenic to your pet.
  • What symptoms doesOncoGuarDx treat?
    OncoGuarDx is a diagnostic test. It is used to diagnose and indicate the presence of stress, which in turn can cause cancer and other serious illnesses. It is not a treatment or cure.
  • If my dog is in danger zone, what do I do next?
    If your dog’s test discloses at-risk stress levels, then you should make corresponding adjustments to your pet’s daily activities and diet pattern and keep close watch for any change in test results.  However, if your dog’s test indicates extreme levels of stress or the presence of cancer, seek immediate medical assistance.  Feel free to read Managing Dogs Stress FAQs below which we hope will point you in the right direction towards helping your dog deal with stress.

  • How is OncoGuarDx different from conventional blood cancer test?
    OncoGuarDx employs the most advanced DNA technology to give you the most accurate early cancer detection at all time. Unlike blood TK/CRP test for dog cancer which relates to nonspecific rapid cell division or inflammation, OncoGuarDx checks for fundamental alterations in DNA physicochemical property ubiquitous to all the cancer genomes.

Each year three million dogs are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. and more than 1/2 of dogs die of cancer after the age of 10. These sobering statistics prompted us to come up with an early cancer test that can help our dogs live a longer and happier life.
