• Highly sensitive for detection of bladder TCC in dogs.

  • Very useful when cytology or biopsy is impractical or inconclusive.

  • May aid in early detection to improve prognosis and guide further diagnostics.

  • Potential utility as a screen for bladder cancer in geriatric and high-risk populations.

  • Excellent negative predictive value allows for rule out diagnostic information.

A SIMPLE TEST WHICH REQUIRES A SINGLE URINE SAMPLE

SHOULD MY DOG BE TESTED

Following are several of the key points to consider when trying to determine if your dog should be tested:

  • The test is highly sensitive for detection of urinary tract tumors (Transitional Cell Carcinoma)
     

  • The test may aid in early detection to improve outcomes and guide further testing
     

  • Most cases are diagnosed late and have a poor prognosis because the disease is advanced and therapies are less successful 1
     

  • Clinical signs of TCC are mimicked by non-cancerous disorders and make early detection difficult by conventional techniques 2
     

  • Prevalence of bladder cancer in dogs has increased 250% over a 5 year period 3

CANINE BLADDER CANCER RISK FACTORS

Chronic Urinary Tract Disorders: 

 

The use of V-BTA on recurrent urinary tract symptoms can aid in earlier detection of TCC in your dog.

 

Geriatric Dogs:

 

Most cases of TCC occur in dogs over the age of 7 years. Because of its high sensitivity (ability to detect true cancer), the test may be a practical screening tool to rule out TCC in geriatric patients.

 

High-Risk Factors:

  • Exposure to topical insecticides

  • Exposure to lawn herbicides and insecticides

  • Exposure to spraying of insecticides (for mosquitoes, for example)

  • Obesity

  • Female Gender
