St. Louis Cystoscopy Veterinarians
Associated Veterinary Specialists Internal Medicine veterinarians provide the highest level of Cystoscopy veterinary services in the St. Louis area
A cystoscopy is done for several purposes. To diagnose diseases of the urethra and bladder when other methods are inconclusive. To remove calculi from the urethra and bladder via grasping forceps or laser lithotripsy. To cannulate the ureters to facilitate placement of stents for relief of obstruction.
A sterile cystoscope, Associated Veterinary Specialists has all the available rigid and flexible cystoscopes, is placed into the urethral opening with the pet under anesthesia and gently guided forward into the bladder.
This can be accomplished in female dogs and cats of almost any size but cannot be performed in small male dogs or male cats.
