Re: [RC] Ulcer Treatments//To Scope or Not to Scope - Beverley H. Kane, MD

Don - Sorry if I wasn't clear. I'm not opposed to technology. I'm talking
about cases where the clinical diagnosis has a high degree of certainty and
additional/CYA procedures are a huge financial and logistical burden. - b

Lets hear it for modern technology and the ability to actually
physically look at a possible internal problem like ulcers by using a
scope and be able to either completely rule out the problem or apply
the proper treatment. There are still many areas where vets must rely
on their experience and clinical skills but sometimes technology has
given us some very valuable tools that help to make a very accurate
diagnosis. If you really want to know if your horse has ulcers then
use the scope. Then you can either apply treatment or if the horse
scopes clean then look at other possibilities causing his symptoms.
