Rhinoscopy

This procedure requires general anesthesia. The animals are placed on their back in order for a scope to be passed into the mouth and retroflexed back into the nasal cavity via the soft palate. This allows us to be able to view the nasal passages for foreign bodies, masses as well as being able to get biopsies and flush any material out of the nasal cavity. The animals are admitted for the day and go home in the afternoon.
