Endoscopy, X-Ray and Ultrasound


An endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure where a specialised camera is used to view areas within your pet’s body such as the stomach, airways, and more.

An endoscopy is mainly used to diagnose issues with the stomach, bladder, airways, nasal passages and more. There is also the opportunity to take samples from within the gut to help with diagnosis, without having to perform a major operation.


An x-ray can be used to identify and diagnose many different problems by allowing us to see what is going on inside your pet. Issues such as fractured or broken bones, check on conditions that affect the heart, lungs, liver and other organs and even diagnose dental problems.


An ultrasound is a safe, non-invasive diagnostic procedure that gives your vet a two-dimensional ‘picture’ of your pet’s organs. It can be used to investigate issues such as laboured breathing, organ diseases (e.g. liver and kidney problems), pregnancy, foreign objects in the body and irregular heartbeats.

If you are at all concerned about your pet and would like to speak to a specialist for a more detailed assessment, speak to us today and we’ll be happy to help.
