Endoscopy allows us to investigate certain areas of your pet’s body that would either be inaccessible or only accessible by surgery. This access is enabled by the use of either rigid or flexible “telescopes” that can be inserted into such areas as the nasal passages, upper airways and gastrointestinal tract. We are able to view these areas on a video screen to assist in identifying foreign bodies, tumours, strictures etc. Gastrointestinal foreign bodies can sometimes be removed and biopsy samples can also be taken during endoscopic examinations.
