Veterinary neurology encompasses diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system – the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, and muscles. Dogs and cats, like humans, experience a wide variety of neurological disorders. These include congenital abnormalities, traumatic injuries, inflammatory conditions, cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, intoxications/poisoning, and nutritional disorders. Some of the neurological disorders that we routinely diagnose and treat are listed below.

Initial evaluation of your pet's problem is usually performed by your regular primary care veterinarian, or an emergency veterinarian in urgent situations. Referral to a veterinary neurologist may then be recommended. While some neurological conditions can be managed through your primary care veterinarian, most benefit from more thorough evaluation by a veterinary neurologist who is familiar with a wide range of neurological problems. Serious or persistent neurological dysfunction generally warrants prompt referral.

Diagnosis of problems in the nervous system is often more difficult than in other body systems because the nervous system cannot be easily examined with routine diagnostics like blood testing and x-ray imaging. The most important part of the neurological evaluation is a complete neurological exam, which is always the first step. Occasionally, this is all that is required to identify and treat a problem. More commonly, advanced diagnostics are needed to identify the cause of a neurological problem and guide treatment options. A wide variety of treatments are used, including both medical and surgical therapies. Multiple options are usually available, and the treatment plan is always tailored to the individual animal and its family.

Neurological disorders range in severity from minor, benign conditions to serious, life-threatening diseases. Many can be treated very effectively, and dogs and cats routinely make dramatic recoveries from debilitating conditions.

Our neurologist is experienced in diagnosing and treating all conditions of the nervous system in dogs and cats. Our hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and treatment facilities allowing our Neurology team to effectively care for our patients. Neurological disorders can be complex, challenging, and frightening - our team is here to give your pet the best possible chance of recovery and to guide you through each step of this process.
