Common indications for veterinarian vaginoscopy and cystoscopy include such conditions as chronic cystitis, incontinence, trauma, vaginal discharge, bleeding, and foreign body removal, to name just a few of the most frequent ones. In addition, both procedures may be performed in conjunction with artificial insemination.
The timely treatment of the conditions mentioned above is critical to the reproductive and general health of small animals. At the same time, artificial insemination in dogs under visual control provides a proven way to increase the conception rates and overall reproductive efficiency. The main advantage of these procedures is that the area to be reached can be approached either through natural bodily openings or through small incisions, thus minimizing intrusion and risk for the animal.
