Endoscopy can be just as useful in veterinary medicine as in human health care. Most commonly, endoscopy is used as a diagnostic tool, rather than to treat, but can also be used for what is termed "interventional endoscopy." Common reasons animals might benefit from endoscopy are much the same as the reasons humans benefit. Endoscopy will allow for a visual exploration of an area, as well as provide a means of obtaining a sample, or biopsy, without the risks of actual surgery. The broad range of types of endoscopy that can be performed on animals include respiratory tract endoscopy, upper and lower GI tract endoscopy, urinary and genital tract endoscopy, and abdominal endoscopy.
