Endo-i® Veterinary Endoscopes by IMS Animal Health provide Patterson Veterinary Customers an innovative way to perform endoscopy procedures.
August 15, 2016 (BIRMINGHAM, AL.) – Patterson Veterinary and IMS Animal Health have partnered to provide veterinarians with a new solution for endoscopy procedures - the Endo-i Veterinary Endoscope. Capable of streaming video to a Wi-Fi-enabled smart device, the Endo-i redefines upper and lower airway examinations for equine veterinarians.
"Endo-i gives today's veterinarians a modern and convenient way to perform procedures," said Dawn Williams, Vice President of IMS Animal Health. "For too long practitioners have been forced to use hand-me-down devices from the human market. Using IMS' advanced capabilities and years of experience in flexible endoscopy, we designed and built Endo-i from the ground up to offer a portable, wireless, and easy way for these doctors to perform airway inspections."
"Patterson Vet Supply is very excited to be able to expand the reach of Endo-I by being the exclusive distributor for the product in the US veterinary market. With our dedicated equine sales team and equipment specialists Patterson is dedicated to delivering the cutting edge technology offered by our partners at IMS," said Derrick Drinnon, Regional President, Equine.
The Endo-i Veterinary Endoscope EQ1510 Equine Airway Scope comes with a one-year warranty and will begin shipping to Customers August 15, 2016. EQ1510 is the first in a family of IMS Animal Health endoscopes planned to meet the needs of the under-served equine and companion animal segments.
