What is Small Animal Endoscopy?

Small animal endoscopy employs a slender flexible tube with an attached camera to inspect the internal structures of a small animal's body. Endoscopy, a minimally invasive technique, allows for direct visualization and intervention within the body cavities of small animals such as cats and dogs. During the endoscopy, the veterinarian inserts the tube either through the mouth or via a small incision, enabling the visualization of organs and tissues on a screen.

The application and value of endoscopy in small animals have significantly advanced veterinary medicine, providing essential diagnostic and therapeutic capabilities.

Endoscopic Examination Items

What are the Main Applications of Endoscopy in Small Animals?

Endoscopy is valuable diagnostic and therapeutic method in veterinary medicine, particularly for small animals like cats and dogs. The main applications of endoscopy in these animals include:

Gastrointestinal Examination


Used to diagnose and treat esophageal diseases, such as strictures, foreign bodies, and ulcers.


It allows for the non-surgical retrieval of ingested foreign objects from the stomach or intestines.


To examine the duodenum for conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, tumors, and blockages.

Respiratory Examination


To evaluate the larynx for conditions such as laryngeal paralysis, masses, and structural abnormalities.


For visualizing the trachea and bronchi, diagnosing conditions such as tracheal collapse, bronchitis, tumors, and foreign bodies.


Ear Examination:

Endoscopic examination of the ear canal and tympanic membrane (eardrum) is useful for diagnosing conditions such as otitis externa, otitis media, polyps, tumors, and foreign bodies.

Interventional Procedures:

It can aid in the removal of foreign bodies or masses and the flushing of the ear canal.


Nasal Examination:

Endoscopic examination of the nasal passages and sinuses helps diagnose chronic rhinitis, nasal tumors, fungal infections, and foreign bodies.

Sample Collection:

Biopsies and cultures can be obtained to identify the cause of nasal discharge or obstruction.


Joint Examination:

Endoscopy of joints (arthroscopy) is used to diagnose and treat joint diseases such as osteoarthritis, ligament injuries, and cartilage damage.

Therapeutic Interventions:

It allows for minimally invasive surgical procedures within the joint.


Abdominal Examination:

Minimally invasive endoscopic examination of the abdominal cavity helps diagnose and treat conditions affecting the liver, spleen, pancreas, and other abdominal organs.

Surgical Procedures:

It facilitates procedures such as biopsies, organ removal (e.g., ovariectomy, splenectomy), and exploration of the abdominal cavity.

Endoscopic examinations provide a less invasive alternative to traditional surgical approaches, often resulting in reduced pain, faster recovery, and decreased risk of complications for small animals.

Endoscopic Equipment

What are the Main Equipment Used for the Endoscopy of Small Animals?

Small animal endoscopy requires specialized equipment to accommodate the size and unique anatomical features of small animals such as cats and dogs. The main equipment used includes:


Flexible Endoscopes

Used for internal examinations of the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory tract, and other body cavities. They are capable of bending and navigating through the animal's anatomy.

Rigid Endoscopes

Typically used for arthroscopy (joint examination), laparoscopy (abdominal examination), and other procedures where a straight, non-flexible scope is suitable.

Other Components


Displays the images in real-time, allowing the veterinarian to see inside the animal's body.

Image Processor

Displays the images in real-time, allowing the veterinarian to see inside the animal's body.

Aspiration and Suction System

This system helps to flush out debris, blood, or other fluids from the examination site and provides suction to clear the view.

Biopsy Forceps and Graspers

The working channel of the endoscope can be used to collect tissue samples or manipulate tissue during an examination.

This comprehensive set of equipment allows veterinarians to perform detailed diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in small animals, ensuring effective examination and treatment.

Buying Guide

How to Choose a Veterinary Endoscope for Small Animals?

When choosing an endoscope for small animals, several factors must be considered to ensure that the equipment is suitable for the specific needs of the veterinary practice and the animals being treated. Here are the key points to consider:

Type of Endoscope:

Flexible Endoscopes:Ideal for examining the gastrointestinal tract, respiratory system, and other areas requiring maneuverability.

Rigid Endoscopes:Suitable for procedures like arthroscopy and laparoscopy where a straight, sturdy scope is needed.

Length and Diameter:

The length of the endoscope should be sufficient to reach the target area in small animals. The diameter should be appropriate to navigate through the anatomical structures without causing injury.

Image Quality:

High-definition cameras and superior optics are crucial for clear visualization of internal structures.

Durability and Flexibility:

The endoscope should be robust enough to withstand repeated use in small animals and flexible enough to navigate through their anatomy.

Compatibility with Accessories:

Check compatibility with necessary accessories such as biopsy forceps, graspers, irrigation and suction systems, and insufflators.


Consider the portability of the equipment, especially if it needs to be used in various locations such as farms or different veterinary clinics.

Technical Support and Training:

Ensure the availability of technical support and training for the veterinary team to effectively use and maintain the endoscope.

Cost and Warranty:

Evaluate the cost in relation to the features and benefits provided. Check for warranty and after-sales support to ensure long-term reliability and service.

By considering these factors, veterinarians can select an endoscope that meets their specific requirements for performing effective and safe examinations on small animals.
