At Dixie Vet Clinic, we use endoscopy as a non-invasive diagnostic tool to assess and diagnose various medical conditions in dogs and cats. Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows us to examine the inside of your pet's body without the need for surgery.
What is Endoscopy?
Endoscopy is a procedure that involves inserting a small, flexible tube with a camera attached (an endoscope) into your pet's body through a natural opening or a small incision. The endoscope allows us to visualize the inside of your pet's body, including the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system, and urinary tract.
Endoscopy can be used for diagnostic purposes, such as the identification of foreign bodies, tumors, or inflammation. It can also be used for therapeutic purposes, such as the removal of foreign bodies or the treatment of bleeding or obstructions.
Benefits of Endoscopy:
Endoscopy has several benefits, including:
- Non-invasive procedure that reduces the risk of complications and promotes faster recovery
- Provides accurate and precise visualization of internal structures
- Can be used for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes
- Reduces the need for more invasive procedures, such as surgery
