Serving Clyde, Cranbourne, Berwick, Narre Warren, Officer

No pet owner likes to see their pet in pain or feeling discomfort. It’s times like these that make you wish you could ask your pet where they are hurting so you can help figure out what is wrong.

At Clyde Veterinary Hospital, having the most up-to-date tools to diagnose pets accurately is a priority. As not every ailment is visible, a pet endoscopy is helpful for us to figure out what is going on inside your pet.

What is a pet endoscopy?

A pet endoscopy is a way for us to get a look at your pet internally, while also minimising the need for more invasive surgical procedures. The invasiveness of an endoscopy in animals is kept minimal thanks to the use of delicate tools and medical cameras.  

To conduct an endoscopy, we will use an ‘endoscope’ which is a thin long tube that includes a tiny camera to help our vets gain a clear visual of the area being examined. The endoscope can also be used to obtain a biopsy sample or remove growths and foreign objects from the internal cavity.

Signs my pet would benefit from an endoscopy

An endoscopy procedure would be recommended if your pet is suffering from any of the following: 

Difficulty breathing

Chronic vomiting and/or diarrhoea 

Struggling to pass stool

Experiencing pain that is not visible

Coughing or gagging

Choking and difficulty swallowing

What can a pet endoscopy diagnose?

If your pet is experiencing any discomfort or behaving differently from usual, a pet endoscopy can help diagnose ailments such as:




Narrowing passages


Foreign objects

How will my pet feel during and after an endoscopy?

An endoscopy in animals is minimally invasive so your pet should not feel much discomfort or pain during or after the procedure. The tools we use for the procedure are narrow enough to fit through a keyhole surgical entrance or through your pet’s cavities, including the upper GI tract and oesophagus. To help minimise pain during the procedure, your pet will be put under a general anaesthesia.

Give Clyde Veterinary Hospital a call on (03) 9052 3200 to find out more about pet endoscopy or to arrange an appointment for your pet.
