Gastrointestinal endoscopy

Endoscopy for examination of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract is especially useful in assessing esophageal and gastric disorders. GI endoscopy is easily undertaken in the standing animal and is relatively non-invasive. It also increases diagnostic capabilities, especially in the diagnosis of diseases of the esophagus and stomach.
