Flexible endoscopy is a powerful diagnostic tool and non-invasive procedure in small animal emergency cases.

Our flexible endoscopes (containing tiny video cameras) provide the unique ability to reach cavities and internal organs not visible to the naked eye. 

Flexible endoscopy allows for non invasive investigation of symptoms, diagnosis of disease and directed therapies. 

With full colour viewing of the esophagus, stomach and the upper part of the small intestine or the colon at ACE, we can identify abnormalities such as inflammation and swelling, or areas of scarring or stricture (narrowing).

At ACE we can remove oesophageal / gastric foreign bodies such as bones, fish hooks and plastics quickly and non-invasively, in an emergency situation.

Flexible endoscopy procedures include:

Balloon dilation - oesphagus, colon *NIP 

Biopsy - upper GI (oesphagus, stomach and duodenum), nasal, urethra and bladder, vagina *NIP 

Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) - trachea and bronchii *NIP 

Foreign body retrieval - upper GI (oesphagus, stomach and duodenum), tracheal *E *NIP 

Polypectomy - rectum *NIP

*NIP = Non-invasive procedure
