At CTVSEH, our Neurology Department specializes in both medical neurology and neurosurgery while utilizing advanced diagnostic techniques. We work closely with your pet’s primary care veterinarian in developing a treatment plan that is best for each individual patient’s health needs.
Our neurology team is available to evaluate, diagnose, and treat your pet’s symptoms of neurologic issues, such as weakness, paralysis, back and neck pain, seizures, gait abnormalities, circling, and balance disorders. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of disease processes affecting the brain, spinal cord and muscles.
Neurologic disorders can result from injuries, congenital defects, immune system disorders, infections, cancer or be age-related disorders. We utilize cutting-edge diagnostic tools in order to accurately and most efficiently determine the cause of your pet’s paralysis, seizures, back pain, or inability to walk and develop a tailored treatment plan to provide optimal care for the individual patient and family.

What You can Expect
Some of the diagnostic tests that we perform require short general anesthesia. We continuously monitor a variety of patient parameters during all of our testing procedures to obtain the most accurate diagnosis in as safe a way as possible. Patients recovering from anesthesia may need to spend a night with us in the hospital to ensure a safe recovery. Please be prepared to leave your pet with us by bringing any medications or special diets that are currently being given.
