Mobile Gastroscopy

We are able to provide our clients with a gastroscopy service on their yards using our 3.35m long  Olympus digital gastroscope. The length of our gastroscope allows us to visualise a horse's digestive tract from the mouth, down the oesophagus, into the stomach and even the proximal duodenum, with the facility available to take grab biopsies if needed.

Our Olympus digital system allows us not only to take high quality images during gastroscopy procedures, but enables us to record gastroscopies in video format too.  These features are invaluable when repeat assessments are made as it allows us to accurately gauge improvement of lesions and modify treatment plans accordingly.
