Endoscopic examination of the bladder (cystoscopy) and urethra
(urethroscopy) are perfomed in dogs with various urinary tract
problems, such as tumors or difficulty urinating. We can often
collect biopsies during this procedure so that a definitive
diagnosis can be made.
We are able to scope both female and male dogs, as we have a
range of scopes to chose from. However, very small dogs may not be
suitable candidates for these procedures.
