This is the process of using an endoscope, which is effectively a small bundle of fibre optic cables with a tiny camera at the end. This allows our vets to view images from the internal body on a monitor. It is a fast and efficient methiod of diagnosis and can often be used to solve problems without the need for invasive surgical operations. For example, removing foreign bodies.
Types of Endoscopy
- -Rhinoscopy (Nasal)
- -Bronchoscopy (Lungs)
- -Gastroscopy (Stomach)
- -Arthroscopy (Joints)
- -Colonoscopy (Rectum)
We use these various processes to investigate potential tumours; problems in the digestive tract; the on-set of arthritis.
Although it is a slightly intrusive procedure carried out under anaesthetic, we ensure that your pet experiences very little discomfort and incurs minimal scarring with a recovery time of virtually nil.
