Burleson Animal Emergency Hospital: Expert Emergency Endoscopy Services
At Burleson Animal Emergency Hospital, our Endoscopy Service allows us to diagnose and treat a range of internal health issues swiftly and with minimal discomfort to your pet. Emergency endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows our experienced veterinarians to examine and diagnose internal issues that may be affecting your pet’s health. By using a thin, flexible tube equipped with a camera and light (endoscope), we can view and address a range of gastrointestinal problems without resorting to invasive surgical procedures. This means less discomfort and a quicker recovery time for your pet. Our endoscopy service is particularly crucial when pets ingest foreign objects or when they show signs of mysterious internal distress.
Emergency Endoscopy: When is it Necessary?
An emergency endoscopy may be necessary if your pet:
- Ingests foreign objects: Items like bones, toys, or clothing can cause serious gastrointestinal blockages. Endoscopy allows for the safe and efficient removal of these obstructions.
- Experiences unexplained weight loss: If your pet is losing weight without a clear reason, endoscopy can help determine the cause.
- Shows signs of gastrointestinal distress: Symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain may signal an internal issue that endoscopy can help identify.
- Requires tissue sampling: For pets with suspected gastrointestinal diseases, an endoscopy can collect tissue samples for biopsy without the need for invasive surgery.
Our Emergency Endoscopy Service is part of our commitment to offering the best possible care for your pet. With our highly skilled team and cutting-edge equipment, you can trust that your pet is in good hands. Emergencies are unforeseen, but at Burleson Animal Emergency Hospital, we’re always ready to provide the immediate, exceptional care your pet deserves.
