Endoscopy

Endoscopy is a diagnostic technique that enables your veterinarian to see the internal structure of organs. Endoscopes are long thin fiber optic tubes with a tiny but high resolution camera on the end. These tubes have controls that allow for the direction of the tip of the tube in any directions as well as an operating channel for performing surgery or collecting biopsies. Endoscopes for the stomach are called gastroscopes and endoscopes for the colon are called colonscopes. There are also endoscopes for the lungs that are called bronchoscopes. Safari has all types of endoscopes for all size of pets and the experience to use them to make an accurate diagnosis for your pet. Endoscopy is usually recommended for pets that have chronic or long standing diarrhea, vomiting, coughing or nasal discharge.
