Horse Scoping

I was wondering if any of you know how long a horse is to be kept off feed before being scoped? I have heard 12 hours but I wanted to double check with other people who may have had your horses scoped to see if this is correct. Also what about water? Can they have it up until the scoping or should it be withheld a few hours before as well? Thanks for any help!

I think your best bet would be to ask the vet you would use to have the procedure done, each vet has their own preference of things to be done in every event and can offer the best advice for that particular case.

Other than that, I'm sorry I can't be of more help, I am a student and do placements at 2 different vet clinics and I know for sure that every vet has different opinions on every matter possible, it's always interesting to see how every opinion differs from that of the other trained professionals

Ask your vet, but usually if the horse is being scoped in their throat area, where the scope is going in through the nose they are only sedated and don't need to have food withheld. But, if they are being layed down under total anethesia for a scope procedure, I wouldn't feed after about 5:00 pm the day before. But, see what your vet says about it first.
