Endoscopy is a diagnostic procedure in which a long tube with a small camera attached is inserted into the body in order to visualize the internal surface of the organs. Although endoscopy must be performed under general anesthetic, it is a non-surgical tool, and there are no incisions required. Endoscopy allows visualization of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. It can be useful for gross examination, biopsies, bacterial and fungal cultures, and may even help retrieve foreign objects that have been ingested.
We are very happy to be able to offer diagnostic endoscopy at our veterinary hospital.
