Endocoscopic examination of the upper digestive tract includes an evaluation of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum. These procedures are commonly performed in dogs with difficulty swallowing, chronic vomiting or persistent diarrhea. We are able to visualise the lining of the tract and collect biopsy samples without the need for invasive surgery.

Sometimes, we use an endoscope to remove foreign objects, such as pennies, from the stomach.
