Veterinary endoscopy is a minimally-invasive, non-surgical procedure that is used to examine your pet’s internal organs and abdominal cavity. An endoscopy can also be used for foreign body removal and to obtain tissue biopsies. The endoscopic procedure involves inserting a flexible tube (with a light and camera scope attached) through natural openings to show what’s going on inside your pet’s body. The skilled doctors at Colorado Springs Veterinary Surgery and Rehab Center perform a variety of endoscopies including:
- Arthroscopy—Arthroscopy is commonly used to evaluate joint conditions, most commonly elbow, knee, and shoulder joints.
- Colonoscopy—A colonoscopy examines your pet’s lower intestinal tract including the rectum and colon. Colonoscopies are useful for diagnosing ulcers, tumors, and inflammatory bowel disease.
- Cystoscopy—Cystoscopies are used to examine the bladder and urethra, and help identify urinary tract infections and bladder abnormalities.
- Gastroscopy—A gastroscopy is used to inspect your pet’s upper intestinal tract including the stomach and esophagus and can help remove foreign bodies, collect biopsies, and diagnose gastrointestinal issues.
- Laparoscopy—A laparoscopy provides a look at the contents of your pet’s abdominal cavity and is useful for organ biopsies and tumor removal.
- Rhinoscopy—A rhinoscopy examines your pet’s nasal cavity.
