Endoscopy

Veterinary endoscopy is an extremely useful procedure which aids in the diagnosis and treatment of problems occurring in the upper and lower gastrointestinal (GI) tracts. With an endoscope, we can perform a more complete examination of the GI tract, including the esophagus, stomach and some areas of the intestines. The veterinarians at Lakeside Animal Hospital are well-trained in the use of an endoscope.

The endoscope allows a veterinarian to visualize areas that would normally not be accessible without invasive surgery. The scope is equipped with a lighted camera, and pictures are transferred to a monitor to be better evaluated by the veterinarian. Using the scope, a doctor can diagnose gastrointestinal disorders, cancerous growths, polyps and much more.

Even though anesthesia is required to keep your pet still during the endoscopic procedure, the amount of anesthesia and recovery time is greatly reduced. Endoscopy is often indicated when routine blood and urine tests, radiographs and ultrasound do not give the complete diagnostic picture.
