Endoscope and Your pet

What is an endoscope? Well put simply, it’s a tiny camera that is skillfully maneuvered through different openings of the body. This is a very non-invasive way to see what’s going on in your pet’s body. With the help of different attachments, biopsies and even small foreign bodies (such as grass seeds and small ingested items) can be taken from the body without your pets going under a major surgery if it’s possible.

We at Riverview Animal Hospital are happy to announce that we just got a brand new endoscope with multiple ends of both nasal and gastric endoscopy procedures.

Please feel free to ask any of our staff any questions you may have about our an endoscope or about the procedure.
