Pet Endoscopy: Gastrointestinal Exams in Parker, CO

Gastrointestinal (GI) issues are common in pets, but they can be tough to diagnose without the right tools. Thankfully, pet endoscopy provides a minimally invasive way to get an up-close look at your furry friend’s digestive system and accurately identify any underlying problems.

Benefits of Pet Endoscopy

  • Accurate diagnosis: Pet endoscopy can help diagnose a variety of GI conditions, including chronic gastritis, stomach ulcers, and foreign body removal.
  • Less invasive procedure: Pet endoscopy is a less invasive procedure than traditional surgery, which means there is less risk of complications.
  • Quick recovery: Pet endoscopy patients typically recover quickly, and most can go home the same day.

How Pet Endoscopy Works

During a pet endoscopy, your veterinarian will insert a flexible tube with a camera attached into your pet’s mouth. The camera will transmit images of your pet’s GI tract to a monitor, allowing your veterinarian to see inside your pet’s body without making any incisions.

In some cases, your veterinarian may also take tissue samples or remove foreign objects during the procedure.


After a pet endoscopy, your pet will need to be monitored for a few hours to make sure they are recovering well. They may also be given medication to help with pain and nausea.

Most pet endoscopy patients can go home the same day, but it is important to follow your veterinarian’s instructions for post-procedure care.
