ENDOSCOPY and RHINOSCOPY at Treendale Pet Medical.
As well as radiology and ultrasonography, Treendale Pet Medical has sophisticated imaging equipment to take our veterinarians to those hard to examine places. We have a 2mm Rhinoscope that can take a camera into very small places such as a cats nose. Does your pet have chronic sneezing or an unusual discharge from its nose? Perhaps we can help by placing a camera into the nose to take a look, take biopsies or samples or maybe just remove a hard to find grass seed? We also have an Endoscope to examine the gastrointestinal system. Endoscopy is used to examine the stomach for ulcers, tumors and foreign bodies that are sometimes invisible on x-ray or ultrasound. Endoscopy can be used as a non surgical option for biopsies of the stomach or colon. Endoscopy can also be used as a non surgical option for foreign body removal in the oesophagus. If your pet has chronic vomiting or chronic blood in the stool, an endoscope may be the answer for achieving a diagnosis.

We also take high quality radiographs with our top of the range x-ray machine.
High quality is important for accurate diagnosis

We have a high quality ultrasound for sonography. Ultrasound is a wonderful non invasive and non painful diagnostic tool that can be operated safely on a conscious patient without the need for general anaesthesia.
We also offer dental radiographs for patients with bad teeth and to screen for lurking dental pathology below the gum line.
