Video Endoscopy

The use of video endoscopy in the horse has enhanced our diagnostic capabilities for various body systems, including the respiratory tract, the gastrointestinal tract, and the reproductive tract.  Video endoscopy not only magnifies the structures to make small structures more visible, it also allows you, as the client, to visualize the anatomy as we explain a given problem in your horse.

We have various diameter and lengths of our endoscopes to accomodate our various sized patients, from foals and miniatures, to Belgians and Percherons.  The various lengths also allow different areas to be visualized.  It takes a special three meter endoscope to reach an adult horse's stomach.  We now have the capability to use a portable gastroscope from Olympus, which company provides the very best in optics to prevent incorrect diagnoses.  Others may offer portable gastroscopy, but we offer the best available.  This also allows us to take digital images and videos.

Examples of disorders diagnosed via video endoscopy include:

  • Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
  • Uterine cysts, infections, and scarring
  • Laryngeal Hemiplegia (roaring)
  • Dorsal Displacement of the Soft Palate
  • Small airway inflammatory disease
  • Urinary tract diseases

Where your horse's health is always our
top priority.

Testimonial

Dr. Burks came out on a weekend when my horse had colic. He was very thorough and was great with my horse as well as decent conversation and didn't make me feel badly when asking questions. Thank you for looking at my boy with such short notice!
