Videoendoscopy allows visualisation of the horse’s upper respiratory tract, urinary tract and parts of the gastrointestinal tract. The endoscopes are linked to a screen which allows the vets and the clients to see the images at the same time and for the images to be recorded.

We have a range of different sized endoscopes that we can use to visualise these different regions of the horse in great detail and take biopsy samples for laboratory diagnosis.

Endoscopy of the stomach (gastroscopy) and duodenum (gastroduodenoscopy) is commonly performed in horses that have a history of a poor appetite, recurrent bouts of abdominal pain, behavioral complaints and weight loss.
