The course is designed for veterinarians that want to learn GI endoscopy. Four hours of lecture will cover instrumentation, techniques, and common endoscopic abnormalities given as case examples. Techniques presented include esophagoscopy, gastroscoscopy, duodenoscopy and colonoscopy. Specific procedures such as foreign body removal, PEG feeding tube placement, esophageal stricture management and biopsy methods taught. During the 4-hour hands on laboratory each participant will have enough scoping time to become familiar with upper GI endoscopy, biopsy techniques and foreign body removal. There will be three participants per dog and each person will have the opportunity to endoscope two different dogs. Technicians may also register to attend the lecture, observe in the laboratory and will learn basic endoscopic equipment care.
