Endoscopy uses a tiny video camera at the end of a very narrow scope, called an endoscope that is inserted either into the stomach through the mouth or the colon via the rectum. This allows a veterinarian to view a Pet's gastrointestinal tract, or other areas of concern throughout his or her body. Because a gastrointestinal examination for dogs is minimally invasive, it requires relatively little recovery time.
An endoscopy allows us to view many different parts of a Pet's body. For example:
If a pet is experiencing respiratory issues, we may perform an endoscopy to look inside of their nose and sinuses to determine if an infection is present, check for the possibility of a tumor, or see if the dog has inhaled a foreign body
If a pet is experiencing digestive issues, we may perform a canine endoscopy to look inside the stomach and intestinal tract to check for any foreign objects, blockages or even detect ulcers and other stomach illnesses
