An endoscope is essentially a long tube for looking deep within body cavities.

Frequently we will use endoscopy to look down a wind pipe to see why a dog is coughing or into a cat’s stomach to see why it is being sick. The endoscope provides real visual information which would not be available by any other method.

Professor J Simpson, our visiting specialist in internal medicine also frequently uses endoscopy, colonoscopy or rhinoscopy to diagnose and treat some of our more challenging medical cases.
