Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure that utilizes a flexible tool called an endoscope. The endoscope is a highly specialized tool that allows veterinarians to see inside your pet’s body in a minimally invasive way.
Endoscopy allows veterinarians to provide better and earlier diagnosis, making it a valuable tool to modern veterinary medicine.
Endoscopic techniques have been developed in many different areas of veterinary medicine to offer your pet less invasive – and less painful – alternatives to traditional open surgery.
Endoscopic procedures are used in a variety of different ways for a number of ailments. Some of the most common endoscopic procedures are listed here, but specialists continue to expand the application of endoscopy to other areas.
