Endoscopy


 

An endoscopy is a procedure where the inside of your pets' body is examined internally using an endoscope.

An endoscope is a thin, long, flexible tube that has a light source and a video camera at one end. Images of the inside of the body are relayed to an external screen, allowing the vet to see the internal structuress without invasive surgery.

Scopes of varying sizes are used to investigate and biopsy various areas of the body.

These include:

Upper gastrointestinal tract (oesophagus, stomach and small intestines)

Lower gstrointestinal tract (rectum and colon)

Upper respiratory tract (nasal passages)

Lower respiratory tract (trachea and bronchi)

Bladder and lower urinary tract
