Equine veterinary medicine presents many challenges because of the size and athleticism of our patients. Therefore, examination requires creative thinking in order to get the best diagnostic and prognostic information. Endoscopy in veterinary medicine allows us to view multiple regions of the horse and provides an “up-close” look. The Cornell University Hospital for Animals (CUHA) has recently re-invested in equipment that improves these abilities. The Cornell Equine Seminar Series will show multiple examples of the utility of this technology.
