How Much Does a Dog Endoscopy Cost?

An endoscopy is done as a way to examine the colon, the stomach as well as the other internal organs of your dog.

Usually, rigid scopes are used to check the genitourinary tract and abdominal system of your dog by being inserted into the rectum.  On the other hand, flexible scopes, which are done through the mouth, are used to check your dog’s trachea, small intestines, and the major airway of your lungs.

An endoscopy can be done for a few different reasons.  If your dog has swallowed a foreign object that it will not be able to digest, an endoscope can be used to find it and remove it.  If your dog has been suffering from diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, abdominal pain, or loss of appetite, an endoscopy may help the veterinarian determine what is wrong.
