Endoscopy for Pets

A procedure used to get a full-color image of your pet’s esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and colon.

An endoscopy for pets is a procedure used to get a full-color image of your pet’s esophagus, stomach, and the small intestine as well as the colon. 

How does an endoscopy work?

The veterinarians at Cooper City Animal Clinic will use a tube-like instrument with a video camera attachment and examine the hollow organs by inserting the instrument into them, usually via the rectum or the esophagus. 

Does my pet need an endoscopy?

These are common signs that your pet may need an endoscopy: 

  • Diarrhea 
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite 
  • Abdominal pain 

What can you detect with an endoscopy?

These are some common things our veterinarians can detect/diagnose with an endoscopy: 

  • Abnormalities (such as inflammation)
  • Swelling
  • Scar tissue 
  • Stricture (abnormal narrowing)
  • Foreign bodies (some of which can be retrieved and removed)

Will my pet require anesthesia for an endoscopy?

Yes. In order to perform the procedure, your pet will need to be completely still and calm. Short-term anesthesia will need to be administered, but you will mostly likely be able to take your pet home after the procedure is over.
