Neurology

What is neurology?

Neurologists deal with conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Diseases that affect the nervous system can manifest with some of the most worrying clinical signs and many conditions are potentially life-threatening or can seriously affect your pet’s quality of life.

Because of the complexity of the nervous system, the opinion of a specialist neurologist is often sought by the general practitioner and owner early on, to ensure that the correct diagnosis is reached and appropriate treatment instigated. Some conditions which our neurology specialists can help with include;

  • Epilepsy and seizure disorders
  • Brain tumours and other cancers of the nervous system
  • Chiari-like malformation and syringomyelia
  • Fibrocartilaginous embolism (spinal cord stroke)
  • Chronic back pain
  • Degenerative myelopathy
  • Lumbosacral disease
  • Vestibular disease
  • Inflammatory CNS disease (often referred to as GME)
  • Cerebrovascular accidents (stroke)
  • Trigeminal neuropathy (dropped jaw)
  • Facial nerve paralysis
  • Myasthenia gravis and other neuromuscular diseases
  • Intervertebral disc disease (slipped disc)

Our Specialists

What we do

We provide a service that allows pet owners to consult with veterinary specialists by telephone or video consultation.

We offer independent, specialist advice from the comfort of your own home and without the commitment of further tests, treatment or significant costs. During the consultation with one of our specialists, we can discuss all aspects of the pet’s condition, including options and recommendations for further investigation, the diagnosis (or potential diagnoses), potential treatment options and the likely prognosis.
