Endoscopes are tube-shaped instruments that allow access to internal body tissues without surgery. Your New England Animal Medical Center (NEAMC) internal medicine department has access to endoscopes that can look inside the gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, and intestines) for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. We can also perform a cystoscopy to evaluate the urethra and bladder in dogs and rhinoscopy to evaluate the nasal sinuses and oral cavity. Our endoscopes allow an “inside view” of ulcers, growths, or objects your pet may have swallowed.
Many veterinarians refer their patients to an NEAMC internal medicine specialist for gastrointestinal evaluation, particularly in chronic cases of vomiting and diarrhea. Unfortunately pets, like their owners, can suffer from inflammatory bowel disease and other intestinal ailments that can only be diagnosed accurately with biopsy. Endoscopic biopsies are usually much easier on a patient than conventional surgery and pets often can go home the same day the procedure is performed.
In some cases, foreign material can be removed with special retrieving instruments avoiding a surgical procedure for your pet. In the past, we have removed jewelry, coins, plastic toys, and a host of other “foreign bodies” that would otherwise have required conventional surgery to remove.
