Endoscopy

Here at the Fraser Valley Animal Hospital we have spent a lot of time training in minimally invasive surgery. When your pet is ill our scopes allow us to examine small areas such as the nose or bladder and get diagnostic samples without having to use a scalpel blade. Occasionally some pets need to have their esophagus, stomach, trachea, or nose examined and/or biopsied. With our flexible camera (endoscope) or rigid scopes we are able to collect many samples instead of having to do surgery.  As well endoscopy allows us to put in short term feeding tubes for our chronically ill cats. Note that this procedure is not appropriate for all medical cases.
