Endoscopy and Laparoscopy

Animal Clinic Northview is very proud to be a leader in providing minimally invasive procedures for your pets. We are all familiar with the advantages that humans have experienced from endoscopy with procedures such as gall bladder and appendix removal. Animals can now benefit from this same technology in a variety of procedures. Reduced pain, faster discharge from the hospital, and a quicker return to normal activity are just some of the benefits that patients can experience when endoscopy is used as part of their diagnostic and therapeutic plan.
