Gastroscopy allows visualization of the esophagus and stomach to check for ulceration. Gastric ulcerations are erosions of the stomach lining due to prolonged exposure to acid produced by the stomach.Recent research reports that about 75% of competition horses have some grade of ulcers present. We have a 3 meter gastroscope that attaches to a full screen so both the doctor and client can view the horse's stomach lining. Gastroscopy is a simple procedure, the fasted horse is lightly sedated and the scope is passed through the nasal passage down the esophagus into the stomach.
