Endoscopy is a non-surgical procedure used to examine the digestive tract, using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it.

During an upper endoscopy, an endoscope is easily passed through the mouth and throat and into the oesophagus, allowing the veterinarian to view the oesophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine.

Similarly, endoscopes can be passed into the large intestine (colon) through the rectum to examine this area of the intestine.

Endoscopy requires your pet to be anaesthetised.
