During a gastroscopy, we use a long and flexible probe scope to look inside your horse’s upper gastrointestinal tract.
Some common symptoms, which are also reasons to have a gastroscopy performed, include lack of appetite, poor coat, teeth grinding, inability to gain weight, and many others. Typically, the horses are just not right and their symptoms are not necessarily specific. Behavior problems can often be a sign of stomach ulcers, though some patients don’t have any signs at all.
If you have any questions about gastroscopies or would like to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to contact us today at (360) 424-4054.
