Endoscopy is a way of looking inside your animal using a small flexible tube containing bundles of fibre-optic cables and has a camera at the end providing high quality images. We can examine the insides of your pet and also obtain samples in a minimally invasive way. Endoscopy is painless, but does require general anaesthesia in our patients.

Using the endoscope we can offer the following services:

  • Bronchoscopy – used to visualise the lungs and airways
  • Gastroscopy – used to examine the stomach and intestines
  • Rhinoscopy – used to investigate nasal discharge, epistaxis or for the removal of a grass seed from up the nose!
  • Foreign body removal – in some cases this can be used to retrieve objects from the stomach or intestines.
  • Biopsies – in some cases this can be used instead of a surgical technique for example from the stomach, intestines or nasal passage.
