@lil.msvioletjolene came to us for episodes of chronic intermittent vomiting, decreased appetite, & diarrhea.

Some pets’s like Violet have a condition that’s difficult to diagnose without actually examining an internal organ or obtaining a biopsies or tissue samples.

While this can be accomplished with surgery, endoscopy provides a less invasive alternative. We hope that this noninvasive test is the last piece of the puzzle that helps us unlock Violet’s story.

During this procedure, a veterinarian inserts an endoscope — a tubular instrument with a small camera and light at one end — into an opening mouth of the body.

Endoscopy provides a minimally invasive way to help diagnose & distinguish different gastrointestinal conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) from infectious disease or certain types of cancer.
