Nu Q® Vet Cancer Test Product Information

How to submit a sample

We’ve created a step-by-step guide (below) showing you how to submit a sample for testing.

We recommend testing for all dogs (7 years and older), and younger dogs (4 years and older) in breeds with an increased risk of developing cancer in their lifetimes.

How to interpret and communicate results

We’ve developed a simple traffic light system for interpreting results using the Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test, and a simple guide around communicating results to pet parents. Please see our download below.


  • Results are consistent with those found in healthy animals over the age of 1 year, and all genders. Retest at your next visit.

  • If the patient has been fasted, and is otherwise healthy, re-test in 2-4 weeks ensuring a 4-hour fast. If the patient has not been fasted, and is otherwise healthy, repeat the test at your earliest convenience ensuring a 4-hour fast.

  • Nu.Q® Vet Cancer Test results at the high risk level are consistent with an increased risk of cancer in healthy animals over the age of 1 year, and all genders.

    Review medical history for previous conditions. Check for lumps, swollen lymph nodes, or signs of pains. Look for elevated white blood cell counts indicating inflammation.
