Digital Video Gastroscopy

Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) is a performance limiting problem in all disciplines of the equine industry. Gastroscopy is the only accurate diagnostic technique for gastric ulcers, and is most commonly performed in order to diagnose EGUS. Gastroscopy is simply the visualization of the inside of the horse’s stomach. The procedure involves using an ‘extra long’ 3 meter flexible video endoscope which allows direct examination of the stomach lining. It is carried out under sedation and is well tolerated by most horses. Through the use of video Gastroscopy, we can completely evaluate the health of your horse’s stomach and provide proper treatment protocols without the guess work!
