Endoscopy

Vet performing EndoscopyEndoscopy means ‘looking inside’ and in medical terms it refers to looking inside parts of the body. At Towcester Veterinary Centre we have two flexible┬ávideo endoscopes of different sizes that we can use for looking inside the oesophagus, stomach, nose, pharynx and airways of dogs and cats. At the same time biopsies can also be taken.

 

 

Common uses include:

  • looking in the stomach for causes of bleeding or possible obstruction
  • looking in the nose and pharynx for a foreign body
  • looking in the airways for causes of coughing
  • performing broncho-alveolar lavage to look for infection, inflammation or cancer.
