Neurology & Neurosurgery

Because they can’t tell you what’s wrong

NeurologyIf your pet has difficulty walking, standing or moving, or is acting strangely or confused, it’s possible that he or she is experiencing some kind of neurological event.

MedVet’s veterinary neurologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neurologic disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system in small animals.

Whether your pet has a congenital or age-related neurologic disorder, our Neurology team works with other MedVet specialists and your family veterinarian to determine and treat the cause of the illness.

Common causes may include:

  • Epilepsy
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Vertigo (loss of balance)


  • Neurologic examination
  • Electrodiagnostic testing, including electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies
  • Spinal fluid analysis
  • Magnetic Resonance Scans (MRI) and Computerized Tomographic Scans (CT) evaluations
  • Spinal and brain surgery
  • Anti-epileptic drug monitoring
