Sydney Equine Practice uses a range of endoscopes (camera) to see inside your horses body. This allows our veterinarians to look inside your horses throat at rest with a videoscope or while your horse is working with a dynamic endoscope.
Dynamic obstructions of the upper airway often only occur during high-speed and/or intense exercise meaning resting upper airway respiratory endoscopes often under diagnose or fail to diagnose conditions. DRE is suited to horses with abnormal noise production during exercise, exercise intolerance, and poor performance.
We are also equiped with a 3 metre video endoscope that allows our team to assess your horses stomach from the inside and diagnoses things such as gastric ulcers.
The examinations are recorded so the video can be viewed at a later date for comparisons.
