Involves visual assessment of the nasal cavity using an otoscope cone or a rigid flexible fiberoptic endoscope. This has distinct advantages over other examination techniques. It is noninvasive, allows direct visualization of the nasal mucosa, allows adequate sample collection, and is much less traumatic than surgery
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.
