Gastroscope

A Diagnostic endoscopic procedure that visualizes the upper part of the gastrointestinal tract down to the duodenum of the intestine. Sometimes this procedure can be used to extract items from the stomach, instead of doing a surgical procedure.

Risks: Like any surgical procedure, there is associated risk with anesthesia and surgery itself, but the overall incidence of complications is very low. Before the procedure, your pet is given a thorough physical examination to ensure that she is in good health. General anesthesia is administered to perform the surgery and medications are given to minimize pain. You will be asked to keep your pet calm and quiet for a few days after surgery as the incision begins to heal.
