From my understanding - VEFGr - KDR/flk shows neovascularization - not
have in-house antibodies to both the human VEGFr-KDR and the mouseVEGFr-flk
both work in paraffin sections with tyramise amplification methods.  You might
want to check out Oncogene to see if they have these two receptor antibodies.
I hope this helps.
