img_RCS_endoscopeVeterinary endoscopy allows for direct visual examination and biopsies of your pet’s gastrointestinal system. This allows for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment of oral, esophageal, stomach, colon and upper intestinal tract disease. Endoscopy is valuable in diagnosing dogs with chronic GI disorders such as chronic vomiting and chronic diarrhea. In some cases, foreign objects can be removed without the need for surgery. Anesthesia is mandatory for proper veterinary endoscopic evaluation. Pets are placed under sedation or general anesthesia and then a flexible endoscope (about the diameter of your ring finger) is inserted into the cavity being visualized.
