Our pets can experience many of the same neurological problems that humans do. PESCM is dedicated to delivering the most advanced diagnostic tools to help uncover neurological problems in dogs and cats.
If you believe your pet is having a neurological issue, please go straight to an emergency room. Time is of the essence with many neurological conditions, particularly anything involving partial or complete paralysis.
Dogs and cats can experience many of the same brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular problems that humans do. These all fall into the specialty of veterinary neurology and neurosurgery, which include care for a wide range of disorders – epilepsy, ruptured vertebral discs, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, brain tumors, and more. Although neurological disorders may cause great distress for pets and owners, many problems can be treated very successfully.
Diagnosis and treatment of a neurological disorder can be complex and challenging. Primary care veterinarians often work with our board certified veterinary specialist in managing disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular systems.
Our neurologist at PESCM works in conjunction with your family veterinarian to provide the care your pet needs. The Neurology team are experts in managing disorders of the brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular system. We have a wide array of advanced diagnostic modalities at our disposal to assist in the accurate diagnosis of your pet’s neurologic symptoms, including an on-site CT scan, MRI, and spinal fluid analysis.
