Endoscopy and Video Otoscopy

We offer more specialized veterinary services. Endoscopy and video otoscopy.

Endoscopy allows us to use a non-invasive means to acquire an internal diagnosis or rectify an internal problem. We use a manouverable, fibreoptic tool to directly visualize the inside of an animals stomach, small intestine, trachea and airways. This allows us to remove foreign objects without surgery or aquire biopsies without surgery. This is often a far less invasive and effective way to deal with a problem that traditionally required surgery.

Video Otoscope

Video otoscopy  involves the use of a small probe to magnify the visualization of the ear canal, ear drum and middle ear cavity while displaying t he view on a large screen. We are also able to carefully remove debris and foreign objects from the ear. We can gently irrigate the ear and the middle ear cavity if required.

Ear cleaning and examination without this tool is never as effective. Much pathology is missed in traditional ear exams. we like to correctly visualize, treat and solve chronic ear conditions and this tool is exceptionally useful in this regard.

We accept referrals as many veterinary clinics cannot offer these, more specialized services.
