Share this Webinar


Foreign bodies, inflammatory and neoplastic processes are the most common diagnostic findings when evaluating canine and feline nasal diseases. In all cases with a clinical history of chronic unilateral/ bilateral nasal discharge, rhinoscopy in combination with CT imaging is the gold standard for diagnosis and intervention. This webinar will provide an overview of this double endoscopic technique: a rigid endoscope, for the inspection of the rostral part until the ethmoidal volutes of the nasal cavity (anterograde approach), and a flexible endoscope inserted orally into the nasopharynx (retrograde approach).
