Vaughn Road Veterinary Clinic treats patients with neurologic disorders. After the initial evaluation, we may recommend admission to our sister site, Carriage Hills Animal Hospital. Our veterinary teams work together and share an interest and expertise in neurology and neurosurgery. Veterinary referrals are also accepted for these services.
Veterinary Neurology in Pets
Veterinary neurology is the study of the animal’s nervous system: the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Typical conditions associated with veterinary neurology include spine and head injuries, intervertebral disc disease, cancer, stroke, and seizure disorders such as epilepsy.
Symptoms of neurologic problems in pets include staggering, weakness, circling, paralysis, confusion, back or neck pain, seizures, and gait abnormalities. Traumatic injuries and congenital issues may result in serious or life threatening conditions for any animal. If one or more of these symptoms are present in your pet, contact our clinic immediately.
