At Luv-N-Care Animal Hospital, we strive to provide our clients and patients with the most state-of-the-art care available. As such, we are proud to offer endoscopy to better manage the health and wellness of your pet.

What is endoscopy?

An endoscope is a long flexible camera that is inserted through a patient’s mouth into their digestive tract. Once inserted, the camera then allows us to examine the esophagus, stomach, and beginning of the intestines.

What is endoscopy used for?

There are many uses for endoscopy, including the diagnosis of ulcers and tumors, performing biopsies, and removing foreign bodies without the need for invasive surgery.

What types of endoscopic procedures can we do?

Throat endoscopy (Pharyngoscopy and Laryngoscopy – Static & Dynamic)
Respiratory tract endoscopy (rhinoscopy, tracheoscopy, bronchoscopy)
Upper GI tract endoscopy (esophagoscopy, gastroscopy, duodenoscopy)
Lower GI tract endoscopy (colonoscopy, ileoscopy)
Urinary and genital tract endoscopy (cystoscopy, urethroscopy, vaginoscopy)
Inner ear canal endoscopy (otoscopy)

How does endoscopy benefit your patients compared to traditional diagnostic methods?

Endoscopy offers several benefits compared to traditional diagnostic methods:

Non-invasiveness: Endoscopy allows veterinarians to visualize internal structures without the need for extensive surgery. This minimally invasive approach reduces trauma, pain, and recovery time for the patient.

Direct visualization: & Accuracy: Endoscopic procedures provide high-resolution images of the internal organs, allowing for precise diagnosis of various conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders, respiratory issues, and urinary tract abnormalities. Unlike some traditional diagnostic methods, endoscopy allows for direct visualization of the affected area in real-time. This enables veterinarians to identify abnormalities, take tissue samples (biopsies), or remove foreign objects if necessary during the same procedure. The ability to visualize any concerns helps our clients understand better because we can show them what is going on internally.

Quick recovery & reduced risk of complications: Since endoscopic procedures are minimally invasive, patients typically experience shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgical methods. This means less postoperative pain and discomfort. Endoscopy reduces the risk of complications associated with open surgery, such as infection, bleeding, and anesthesia-related issues. 

Overall, endoscopy offers veterinarians a less invasive, more accurate, and safer alternative to traditional diagnostic methods, leading to improved outcomes and better quality of care for our patients.
