What is endoscopy?
Hospital Veterinario Bodión-Zafra in Badajoz offers endoscopy, which is a procedure in which a tube with a camera and a light source is put through the body’s natural orifices, such as the respiratory tract, the intestinal tract, or through surgical incisions to observe internal body cavities. Instruments may also be used to perform minimally invasive surgeries at the same time (cauterisation of tissues, removal of cysts, polyps or tumours…).
Endoscopy requires anaesthesia, so it does not cause any pain or trauma for the patient. It can be used to examine the nose, ears, digestive system, respiratory system, reproductive system and urinary system.
When is endoscopy considered?
The veterinarians at Hospital Veterinario Bodión-Zafra in Badajoz use endoscopy to determine the cause of sneezing, vomiting, diarrhoea or urinary problems in pets and use it to remove objects from the nose, lungs, stomach or oesophagus without painful surgery.
Recovery time is immediate, so once it’s done, your pet can resume their normal life right away.
