Endoscopes

We have a selection of endoscopes that we use. These are tube like pieces of equipment that are either flexible or rigid with cameras at the tip. We use these to look in animal's airways or their digestive tract. We can use them to retrieve foreign bodies from the stomach or airways. We have removed many things in the past ranging from socks, watch straps and toys. We can also take samples from airways and stomachs by taking small tissue samples.
