Endoscopy - What are the risks?

Article Index


Most endoscopic procedures are conducted under general anaesthesia and there will always be a very small amount of risk associated with general anaesthesia. You should always notify us if your pet has had any previous problems with anaesthesia. We may occasionally request permission to conduct tests to help assess any potential risk factors that may be present in your pet. There is also a small risk of damage to the areas being examined by the endoscopic equipment itself.
