Endoscopy is a minimally invasive, diagnostic, medical procedure commonly used to evaluate the interior surfaces of an organ by inserting a small tube into the body. Through the endoscope, the observer is able to see lesions of organs and other internal medical conditions.

In veterinary medicine, endoscopy is commonly used as a diagnostic procedure, for tissue and organ biopsies, to remove foreign objects (particularly in the stomach) or get an inside view of a particular part of a pet's body. Endoscopy is often indicated when routine blood and urine tests, radiographs and ultrasound do not give the complete diagnostic picture.

Dr. Bill Kinney has been performing referral endoscopy procedures for more than a decade. He has completed several continuing education courses in veterinary endoscopy and has received many accolades for his accomplishments. Along with gastrointestinal endoscopy, he also performs urinary tract endoscopy (cystoscopy) bronchoscopy and rhinoscopy (endoscopy of the respiratory tract).
