What is Pet Endoscopy?

Endoscopy is a technique for viewing the interior of a hollow organ or a passageway of the body such as the throat or gastrointestinal tract. A camera is attached to the end of the endoscope to film a specific area and plays the footage back to our team on a screen. Endoscopy is valuable for visualizing areas that would otherwise require surgery to reach, and for taking cultures and removing foreign material from the GI tract.

Endoscopic Procedures

  • Upper and lower GI viewing
  • Foreign body retrieval (from stomach or esophagus)
  • Esophagoscopy (esophagus viewing)

What is Cat/Dog Laparoscopy?

laparoscopic procedure

Laparoscopy is a surgical technique in which we make smaller incisions to perform a procedure and use a tiny scope to view the surgical site and use more precision to avoid traumatizing the surrounding tissues. Veazie Veterinary Clinic regularly performs laparoscopic spay surgeries, which involve making three one-inch incisions (instead of one six to 10-inch incision).

The minimally invasive nature of laparoscopic surgery means your pet will have:

  • Less pain
  • Less bleeding
  • Faster recovery time

In addition to laparoscopic ovariectomies (spays), we can also perform:

  • Laparoscopic assisted liver biopsies
  • Laparoscopic assisted gastropexies
  • Laparoscopic assisted cryptorchid castration
