Using a tiny, flexible camera, we’re able to view internal body parts with little surgical intervention.
What’s an endoscopy?
An endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure where a specialised camera is used to view areas within your pet’s body.
An endoscope is basically a tube with a light and a camera on it that allows your vet to view areas such as the stomach, airways, and more.
What’s an endoscopy used for?
An endoscopy is mainly used to diagnose issues with the stomach, bladder, airways, nasal passages and more.
If your pet’s experiencing vomiting, trouble urinating or diarrhea, your vet might use an endoscopy to investigate the cause of the problem.
There’s also the opportunity to take samples from within the gut to help with diagnosis, without having to perform a major operation.
How will the procedure be performed on my pet?
Endoscopic procedures are usually performed under general anaesthesia. In most cases, your pet will be able to go home on the same day.
