Endoscopy

Endoscopy

An endoscope is a flexible tube that allows our doctor to visualize various body cavities without having to make a surgical incision. This allows us  greater range of treatment options that are less invasive.

Through the use of our flexible endoscope we can potentially remove things that your pet has eaten without resorting to surgery. Endoscopic foreign body retrieval means no incision, less pain, and a much shorter recovery time.

Endoscopy can also be used to obtain biopsies for the diagnosis of certain medical conditions, such as irritable bowel disease (IBD).
