Gastroscopy

Gastroscopy utilizes an endoscope that is 3 feet in length to examine the entire equine esophagus and stomach. Gastroscopy is the gold standard to diagnose EGUS, or equine gastric ulcer syndrome, which is extremely common in performance horses. Gastric ulcers can cause weight loss, poor performance, and colic symptoms. Keep in mind that horses need to be taken off of feed 24 hours before being scoped for the best results. Contact us with any questions or to schedule.
