Endoscopy

High-tech fibre 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 even upper intestinal tract disease. In some cases, foreign objects can also be removed from the GI tract without the need for surgery!  Endoscopy provides us with digitized pictures of everything the scope views. These images are saved on the database for future use or comparison, to send electronically to a specialist for a referral, or we can print copies of the image for the owner to keep.
