3 Meter Gastroscope New at Henderson Equine Clinic!

Gastroscopy involves visualisation of the inside of the horse’s upper gastrointestinal tract in order to diagnose equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS).  Studies have shown that gastric ulcers have been found in 2 out of 3 horses in heavier work/competition.  The procedure involves using a 3 meter flexible video endoscope which allows direct examination of the stomach lining.  Our system offers full screen, real-time imaging and allows for storage of full videos and pictures.
