Veterinarian performing endoscopy

Video Endoscopy

Endoscopy for small animals has evolved to become both an important diagnostic option and, in some situations even a therapeutic solution. Endoscopy is minimally invasive and the various scopes enable our doctors to visually examine the particular area of interest. They also allow for a means of obtaining tissue biopsies, collect fluids, obtain culture samples and retrieve foreign bodies without doing surgery.

From examination of the nasal cavity to the lower gastrointestinal tract, we have the correct scope for any indications.

Our capabilities include:

  • Rhinoscopy (Nasal cavity)
  • Bronchoscopy (Lung airways)
  • Gastroscopy (Esophagus, Stomach and Small Intestines)
  • Colonoscopy (Colon, Rectum)
  • Foreign Body Retrieval!

Therapeutic Laser Treatment

Pekin Veterinary Clinic is proud and excited to add therapeutic laser (low level laser) to our practice. Therapeutic laser provides an extremely effective and versatile modality that benefits many conditions and patients.

Advanced engineering (level IV laser) has allowed therapeutic laser to accomplish relief of pain, a reduction of inflammation, and an increase in the microcirculation within the tissues. The clinical result of this deep photobiomodulation is an accelerated healing time within the targeted tissues.

This proven therapy is being used worldwide and has become the standard of care for the physiotherapeutic treatment regarding pain management, wound healing, and as an anti-inflammatory mediator.

Laser therapy is a healing modality that can benefit a large and varied number of patients on a daily basis. Please call or inquire about this new therapy and talk to our staff and doctors on how therapeutic laser can benefit your pet family member.
