Fibroscopy and coloscopy

Fibroscopy is a technique that allows to visualize the inside of the body by the introduction of a flexible tube in the natural voices, with a light source and a camera.

Colonoscopy is a visual examination of the colon using a probe equipped with a camera.

Examination Process

The examinations are performed under general anaesthesia. The animals must be presented on an empty stomach, if necessary a pre-anaesthetic check-up can be carried out.

For certain digestive examinations (colonoscopy) a medical preparation is essential in order to empty the digestive tract, the animals are then hospitalized the day before, in these cases a diet of 48 hours is also necessary.
