We are one of a few practices in the area that is fortunate enough to own a full length gastroscope.
We use this to perform investigations into Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome, as well as investigations into respiratory problems and poor performance. This procedure is normally carried out under sedation and can give valuable insight into both physical and mechanical problems.
During examination, the images are shown on a monitor screen to give a step by step insight into the mechanics or the area in question. This is especially important in both the digestive and respiratory tract, to allow us to identify any areas of concern.
