We have just had our new video scope delivered!

This modern piece of equipement will enable our vets to examine your horse’s upper respiratory tract including the larynx and guttural pouches.

However, rather than the old scopes where the vet had to look down the eye piece, and risk a black eye in the process, a screen is now in place which is held by the vet, enabling other people present to see what the vet is looking at. This will assist in explaining to the owner what the problem is and will also help educate vet students and other vets.

We can now also save videos and still images, to monitor progression and response to treatment, or to help guide treatment options including surgery.

We’ll get some photos of the new equipement soon!
