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 which has a camera on one end. As this device makes its way through the intestinal tract, the doctor can observe the images in real-time on a color television monitor.
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 issues. If your pet is experiencing frequent vomiting, diarrhea, or sudden weight loss, your veterinarian might recommend an endoscopy. This procedure allows the vet to make a diagnosis as to what is affecting your pet and then provide effective treatment.
Ultrasounds are unobtrusive diagnostic procedures that use sound waves to create images of the internal organs. Also known as sonography, ultrasounds use similar technology as that used for sonars and radars. Ultrasounds do not emit radiation and provide images right away.
Ultrasounds are very useful diagnostic tools for a wide range of health conditions. One of the most common uses is to check for signs of pregnancy but it’s also very effective in evaluating cardiac conditions even.to look for certain eye diseases.
