Endoscopy allows a visual examination of internal organs and body parts without invasive exploratory surgery.
We have 2 endoscopes within Clare Vet Group, both scopes aid in the diagnosis of certain conditions and help us provide the best treatment for your pet.
The advantage of endoscopy over other methods of evaluating the digestive system is that it is nonsurgical. The technique allows for visualisation of the lining of the digestive system and for taking samples of the lining of these organs, including biopsies. Many foreign bodies in the esophagus and stomach may be removed via endoscopy.
Additionally we also have a bronchoscope for airway investigations.
