Pet Endoscopy

High-tech fiber optics permits direct visual examination and biopsies of your pet’s gastrointestinal system. This allows for more accurate diagnosis and treatment of oral, esophageal, stomach, colon, and upper intestinal tract disease.

What is Pet Endoscopy?

Pet endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows our veterinarians to examine the internal organs and structures of your pet’s body using a small, flexible camera called an endoscope. This advanced imaging technology enables us to visualize areas such as the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system, and urinary tract without requiring invasive surgery.

How Pet Endoscopy Works

During a pet endoscopy procedure, the endoscope is inserted into your pet’s body through a small incision or natural opening, such as the mouth or anus. The endoscope transmits high-definition images to a monitor, allowing our veterinarians to carefully examine the internal organs in real time. Specialized instruments may sometimes be passed through the endoscope to perform biopsies or remove foreign objects.
