ENDOSCOPY

 

The practice runs a 1.7m Olympus endoscope allowing visualisation of all aspects of the respiratory tree at rest.

Endoscopy is used to evaluate many parts of the horse, using a 1.7m endocope inserted through any natural opening of the horse's body and can also be used by surgically inserting it. It's used in the upper respiratory tract (Respiratory System - Pharynx, Guttural pouches, Larynx, Trachea), parts of the gastrointestinal tract (Digestive system - oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, rectum and small colon), urinary tract (bladder and urethra) and reproductive tract of mares (vagina, cervix and uterus).

It allows the vets to visually see inside the horse with the camera that is attached on the end and establish any problems causing poor performance in the horse.
