Pet Endoscopy

Pet Endoscopy With Your Collierville Veterinarian

You love your pet more than anything, and you want them to have the best life possible. When they have a problem that requires surgery or another aggressive course of treatment, it can be anxiety-inducing or downright terrifying. Luckily, endoscopy can help assuage your fears by offering another tool that can help us create a more targeted course of action, saving you money and potentially extending your pet’s life.

Your Collierville Veterinarian Explains Pet Endoscopy

Here at our Collierville veterinarian, we use endoscopy to give us more information about your pet. Endoscopy is a procedure that uses a fiberoptic cable with a camera at the end of it. We insert it into your pet through the digestive tract . Once inside the body, we can look around, manipulating the tip from outside the body.

The endoscope we use at our Collierville veterinarian also provides the ability to use tools while we observe from outside. Moreover, we can record everything on camera for later viewing. This helps us make better decisions about your animal’s health and how we should move forward.

How Do Pet Diagnostics Help with Animal Surgery and Health?

Pet diagnostics can help clarify issues and make care more precise and targeted. Animal surgery is already a stressful prospect, and endoscopy can make it not only more effective, but potentially less necessary. If your pet has been experiencing pain, has suffered an injury or a serious disease, or otherwise requires drastic care, we may perform an endoscopy first.

In addition to pet diagnostics that help us figure out what’s going on inside your pet – which in previous days required invasive exploratory surgery – endoscopes can also help us perform small procedures without having to resorting to full animal surgery. The endoscope allows us to use tools to inject air, suction fluid and take samples.

Overall, endoscopy helps us perform high-quality surgeries that have the best chance of success, minimize the potential for invasive surgery and help your pet bounce back as quickly as possible from their trauma. You get peace of mind that your pet is receiving the absolute best care possible.
