Vascular Tumor Dog is a new breed of canine cancer detection dog created by the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) that has achieved the first milestone in their research. Vascular Tumor Dog was a project conceived by my friend, Dr. James Gentry, and myself to bring canine cancer detection technology to the masses. This story is about how we started a new company to help bring our invention to the masses.
We launched Vascular Tumor Dog and began to market it to the world. In just a few months, we reached over 50,000 people and received thousands of donations. The “vascular tumor dog” is a new canine cancer-detection dog breed. This amazing canine combines the strength, speed, and endurance of a greyhound with the agility, smell, and sense of smell of a bloodhound. With their unique combination of skills, these dogs can detect cancer, lung, and heart disease very early.
What Is a Vascular Tumor Dog?
Vascular tumors are rare but are the most common type of tumor in dogs. They are found in almost any part of the body and are caused by the growth of abnormal cells. These tumors can cause problems in the form of pain, blindness, and even death. In 2014, a group of veterinarians met to discuss how to detect these types of tumors better. There was no doubt that the problem needed to be solved. However, the veterinarians didn’t know where to start.
My friend, Dr. James Gentry, and I were asked to help devise a plan to solve this problem. We created a device called a vascular tumor dog, or VTD, which was patented in 2017. While the VTD works very well for detecting vascular tumors, we want to expand its use to help see other tumors. We are expanding our patent to include a small handheld scanner.
What are some symptoms of a vascular tumor in dogs?
You may think any dog with a large, swollen tumor is in trouble. I know this from personal experience. My dog Romeo suffered from a rare condition called angioma, a benign tumor that grows quickly. His condition was so rare no one had ever seen it before. He had two tumors on his back, which were so large that he couldn’t walk. When he came to the veterinary hospital, he had to wear a cone around his head to stop him from pulling out his hair. As you can imagine, this was a very scary situation. I couldn’t sleep, and I worried about their dog’s future. Thankfully, the vet could perform surgery, and they removed the tumors. But that was only the beginning.
What causes vascular tumors in dogs?
Canine vascular tumors are not the same as human vascular tumors. While many types of vascular tumors exist in humans, only two are in dogs. In humans, these tumors are benign and can be easily removed. However, dogs are extremely dangerous and usually cause the dog’s death within weeks. A genetic mutation causes canine vascular tumors to be passed down from parent to offspring. Most owners of a dog that develops a vascular tumor will not notice anything until the cancer reaches a large size and causes discomfort. When this happens, the dog may start limping or show other symptoms, such as losing appetite. This is a sign that the dog has a vascular tumor.
How to spot a vascular tumor in your dog?
You know that doggie cancer is on the rise. Unfortunately, it’s often too late when a tumor is discovered. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Vascular Tumor Dogs, or VTDs, are a breed of canine cancer detection dog that can find tumors before they become life-threatening. I’ve known Dr. James Gentry for a while now. He’s an incredible veterinary surgeon who specializes in cancer. When he approached me about his canine cancer detection dog idea, I immediately said, “Yes.” We set up a partnership, and together we created a VTD puppy. This story is about how we started a new company to bring our invention to the masses.
What is the risk of a vascular tumor in dogs?
It’s a good question; these are very important to dog owners. Let’s say you are a dog owner and take your dog to the vet for their annual physical examination. The vet tells you your dog has a small mass in their ear. He says it’s nothing to worry about. You should probably be worried. You should probably start worrying immediately. That small mass in your dog’s ear could indicate a vascular tumor, while a cancerous tumor affects blood vessels. If your dog is over the age of six months, it’s also a good idea to talk to your vet about it. A vascular tumor is a common dog cancer, usually diagnosed with a CT scan. It’s best to catch it early when it’s smaller. If you see a vascular tumor in your dog, you should talk to your veterinarian about it.
Frequently asked questions about Vascular Tumor Dog
Q: What’s the origin story behind Vascular Tumor Dog?
A: We met during a shoot in January 2012. He was the first dog we saw. He was a beautiful white pup with a red nose and a little bit of black on his paws. He looked like he could be an English Bulldog. He had such big eyes and such soft fur. It was like seeing the cutest thing ever! He grew up to be an adorable, big-boned, and lovable guy.

A: We trained him ourselves. We started with basic obedience training, then worked with him on his agility, and he became a great competitor. His owner was always excited and proud of him, but training and keeping him clean wasn’t easy.
Q: How has Vascular Tumor Dog helped you?
A: VDT has brought happiness and joy to my life. I am a firm believer in getting out and helping others.
Myths about Vascular Tumor Dog
1. Vascular tumors are not hereditary.
2. Vascular tumors do not occur at birth.
3. Vascular tumors are congenital malformations.
4. Vascular tumors grow and spread.
5. Vascular tumors do not respond to diet or nutritional therapy.
After discovering cancer in humans, we now have canine cancer-detection dogs. They are specially trained to find tumors and other signs of cancer in dogs. As a side note, this dog breed is still being developed. Scientists are trying to create the first cancer-detection dog to work on cats. As you know, cancer is a serious disease that can be fatal. It doesn’t matter whether you have a human or a pet; early detection and treatment can save your life.
