Video Endoscopy & Gastroscopy

Green Glen Equine Hospital has portable video endoscopy and video gastroscopy units.  The video endoscope allows visualization of the upper airways (nasal passages, pharynx, larynx, guttural pouches) and trachea, while the video gastroscope is longer and can be passed down the esophagus to evaluate the stomach and even the first few inches of the duodenum.  Both these units allow clear visual access to internal structures of the horse through minimally invasive procedures.

Conditions which can be diagnosed or evaluated with video endoscopy include:

•  Nasal discharge
•  Coughing
•  Guttural pouch disease
•  Many performance limiting conditions
•  Respiratory allergies or inflammation (heaves)
•  Pneumonia

Gastroscopy is the only way to diagnose gastric ulcerations and the best way to monitor response to therapy.  The horse must be fasted prior to the procedure in order to visualize the entire gastrointestinal system. Horses are sedated for gastroscopy to minimize stress to your animal and optimize the evaluation.

Both video scopes project the image onto a computer monitor so the veterinarian is able to point out areas of concern to the owner or trainer.  We are able to take still images in addition to video images to keep in the horse’s record or to send to a referral institution depending on the severity of the diagnosis.
