Gastroscopy at Fyrnwy Equine
The only way to definitively diagnose equine gastric ulcers is by gastroscopy.
What is gastroscopy?
Gastroscopy is the diagnostic test that involves passing a flexible camera down the horse’s oesophagus and into the stomach. This allows us to see the inside of the horse’s stomach and look for any signs of ulcers.
Horses are sedated to reduce anxiety and stress
Takes around 15 – 20 minutes
What are the advantages of gastroscopy?
Gastroscopy is the only diagnostic test available that is definitive for equine gastric ulcers.
Reliable and straightforward test
Distinguish between squamous and glandular ulcers
