Upper Airway Video Endoscopy

Video Endoscopy (1.5 meter) can detect respiratory tract diseases or head conditions,  allowing visualization of the upper airways including nasal passages, pharynx, larynx, guttural pouches and trachea. Conditions which can be diagnosed or evaluated using this technology include:  Exercise induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH, aka: bleeders), Dorsal Displacement of the soft palate (DDSP), Inflammatory airway disease (IAD), nasal discharge, coughing, respiratory noise during exercise, and head shaking, to name a few.

Gastric Video Endoscopy

Our 3.5 meter Gastric Video Endoscopy allows us to evaluate the esophagus, squamous and glandular regions of the stomach and proximal segment of the small intestine in your horse.  This is the most diagnostic method for diagnosing gastric ulcers in your horse. 

Urogenital Video Endoscopy

Video Endoscopy allows for visual examination of the urogenital tract in a minimally invasive manner, enabling Cor Vet Services and our clients to observe and discuss what is being evaluated and affecting your horse’s urinary tract or reproductive system.
