Interested in learning the latest endoscopic techniques for diagnosing and treating respiratory and urinary diseases in small animals? Look no further! This workshop teaches the indications and proper techniques for using endoscopes in the respiratory and urinary tracts of dogs. Following classroom instruction and live instructor demonstrations, the hands-on session gives participants the opportunity to practice a variety of endoscopic procedures using both rigid and flexible scopes. The same scopes are used for both respiratory and urinary endoscopy – allowing you to maximize the use of your endoscopy system.
