WHAT IS AN ENDOSCOPY?
Endoscopies are non-surgical procedures used to observe an animal’s intestinal tract to determine or diagnose the source of any potential health problems. The procedure uses a flexible tube called an endoscope with a camera on one end. As this device goes through the intestinal tract, the doctor can observe the images in real-time on a color television monitor.
WHY WOULD MY PET NEED AN ENDOSCOPY?
Pets often suffer from intestinal issues due to either a change in their diets, disease or perhaps just eating something that is causing them to have digestive problems. If your pet is experiencing frequent vomiting, diarrhea, or sudden weight loss, your veterinarian might recommend an endoscopy. This procedure allows the vet to diagnose what is affecting your pet and then provide effective treatment.
