Neurological Care for Pets

At our emergency and referral hospital in Burlington, our board-certified veterinary neurologist provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for pets with neurological conditions that affect the function and development of the nervous system. 

During your appointment, our neurology specialist will conduct a thorough neurological exam to determine if, and which part, of your pet's nervous system is impacted. 

Following the exam, our neurologist will explain the most probable causes for your pet's issues. We'll use diagnostic imaging and MRI to identify the precise cause and available treatment, which may include surgery, medical therapy or continuing care.
