Equine services LLC provides endoscopic procedures both in-house and in the field.
Endoscopy is using a small camera at the end of a flexible tube to take images of a desired area/structure. These include upper and lower airway, pharyngeal structures and guttural pouches.
Due to the sensitivity of these structures your horse may need to be restrained with either a twitch or sedation to better view the affected structures.
Some problems that may be identified with endoscopy inclue
- Respiratory disease
- Guttural pouch mycosis/infection
- Upper/lower airway lesions
- Ethmoid hematomas/tumors
