Endoscopy allows the clinician to see anatomical structures in the horse and is a key tool in the diagnosis of many conditions. Both portable fiber optic endoscopy and videoendoscopy are available at Rood & Riddle, and are commonly used to examine and evaluate the upper respiratory tract, upper gastrointestinal tract, urethra and bladder, as well as the uterus in the mare. The videoendoscope is equipped with a monitor that allows the client to see these anatomical structures during the exam, which helps to strengthen the client's understanding of the nature of their horse’s condition. Videoendoscopy also has recording capabilities providing video image copies for medical records, clients, referring veterinarians, or for outside consultations, when requested.
