Different techniques of veterinary endoscopy serve as feasible diagnostic and minimally invasive methods in exotic companion mammals. Rigid endoscopy is commonly used in exotic animal practice as it has wide use in different animal species (mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds). The aim of the masterclass is to show different possibilities of the use of a rigid endoscope in exotic companion mammals including the examination of the eye and eye adnexa, external ear canal, tympanic membrane, nasal cavity, trachea, oral cavity, esophagus, colon, female urethra and urinary bladder and vagina.
