    Interesting article and a long way from being readily available. https://news.wsu.edu/2014/12/10/scorpion-derived-tumor-paint-helps-dogs-at-wsu/#.VKxZjdDTnmw

    Many necropsies will say no tumors seen. If this ever gets down to a low price (doubtful) an injection of tumor paint before euthanasia might help show if small tumors are present and where, assisting in a more accurate diagnosis. Sigh, doubtful if it will ever be useful in chickens but you never know.
