Dryer Sheets Being Removed from Kitty

Check out our video on YouTube!  The doctors used our endoscope to see if there was an obstruction or problem with a kitty that presented with vomiting and lethargy.  

What we found when we put the scope in was pretty exciting!

Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a oet's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of their digestive tract on a color TV monitor.
