Small Animal Endoscopy
The main advantages of endoscopy are that it allows veterinarians to improve diagnosis and treatment times through a minimally invasive process. This means that the Patient experiences less pain, discomfort, and stress during the procedure, leading to a better quality of life for the Animals. Additionally, endoscopy is more accurate than traditional imaging methods, such as X-rays or ultrasounds, as it provides real-time, high-definition images of the organs and tissues being examined.
Endoscopy also offers significant revenue opportunities for small animal veterinarians. The return on investment can be substantial since endoscopy procedures can be billed at a premium rate, between $800-$1000 for gastroscopy alone, resulting in higher profit margins for the practice. By offering endoscopy services, small animal veterinarians can provide a higher level of care, even at the local vet clinic setting, which can lead to increased referrals and revenue.
