GASTROSCOPY

The practice has a 3m gastroscope which allows us to examine the upper gastrointestinal tract including all parts of the stomach. 

Our new 3m equine gastroscope allows us to examine the upper gastrointestinal tract including all parts of the stomach. 

 

This is a particularly useful tool for the diagnosis of gastric ulceration, which is a prevalent condition affecting up to 90% of racehorses and 66% of the leisure horse population.


The unit is completely battery powered and portable allowing stable side use in the absence of mains power. The specialised software lets us view in real time what the vet is seeing down the scope and allows us to record our findings.

Office hours Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm
