24 Hour Veterinarian Provides Endoscopy

PetPB has a Karl Storz endoscopy unit which is used to retrieve esophageal and gastric obstructions and can eliminate the need for abdominal surgery.

24 hour veterinarian endoscopyKarl Storz is generally considered to be the world class leader of high-end human and veterinary endoscopy equipment. It utilizes a long flexible telescope with a digital camera and light source on the end.  On the inside of this telescope is a channel that allows us and any other 24 hour veterinarian to pass various instruments into the stomach to retrieve objects.

We have removed toys, coins (which are toxic), clothing, and even razor blades.  Common items removed from the esophagus include rawhides, and bones.
