Endoscopy & Gastroscopy 

Endoscopy allows to direct visualisation of certain otherwise inaccessible areas of the body. The videoendoscopy system allows the image to be displayed on a TV screen, thereby enabling the client as well as the vet to observe and discuss the case at the same time. Many procedures are performed with a 1.4 metre endoscope, which permits evaluation of the upper respiratory tract (including the pharynx, larynx, guttural pouches and trachea), the urethra and bladder of both males and females, and the cervix and uterus of mares. The 3.0 metre endoscope is used to examine the oesophagus, stomach, upper duodenum, and the bronchi. Endoscopy is an essential part of the evaluation of (among others) horses with poor performance, upper airway obstructions and abnormal respiratory noises, many lung diseases, gastric (stomach) ulcers, many urinary tract diseases.
