Videoendoscopes allow close and detailed visualisation of many otherwise inaccessible areas with the image displayed on a large screen for easy explanation to the client and students.

Overground dynamic endoscopy

In some cases, evaluation of the larynx and pharynx whilst the horse is exercising is necessary in order to make a diagnosis.


Laparoscopy is a rapidly advancing minimally invasive surgical technique that has been developed particularly for ovariectomy and cryptorchidectomy (of abdominally retained testicles) in standing sedated horses.
