The endoscopes used in the practice are highly sophisticated pieces of equipment. They are used to look inside the patient’s body cavities without being invasive. They work by transmitting light from a light source to illuminate the body cavity and transmitting the resulting image to the veterinary surgeon.
Not only is the endoscope used to examine the patient’s internal anatomy but some may also be used to collect fluid and tissue samples as well as undertaking surgical procedures.
This is a modern way of obtaining samples without an invasive procedure being performed and therefore much less stressful to yourselves and your pet.
