PEG (Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy) Tubes

Some pets are not able to eat normally when recovering and need the additional nutritional support provided by Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Tubes or PEG Tubes. These tubes enter the stomach and allow food, medication, and water to be given regardless of the animal’s appetite or ability to eat and are therefore useful in a wide range of situations.

Below are some videos and handouts that walk you through how to feed and medicate your pet when using a PEG Tube as well as how to clean and maintain your pet’s PEG Tube system.
