A colonoscopy is a diagnostic test which inserts a flexible tube with a camera into the patient’s rectum. This procedure aids to visualize the inner lining of the rectum and colon. During this procedure the veterinarian will also be able to take biopsy samples of any suspicious lesions. The biopsies are then sent to a referral laboratory for histopathology. The results of the biopsy will determine if the polyps are benign or malignant.
