There are many factors that can affect your pet’s nervous system, and the study of those factors and treatments is called veterinary neurology. Veterinary Neurology includes the spinal cord, brain, muscles, and nerves.

The most common problems we see include slipped discs, epilepsy, and spine and head injuries. We can now perform spinal surgery on your pets to remove a compressed disc, which prevents the need for euthanasia. The spinal cord can heal after the removal of the disc material that causes compression.

The recovery process requires restricting exercise, but your pet can return to normal activities in as little as a few weeks. Advances in veterinary neurology have made it possible to spend more years with pets that suffer these kinds of injuries.
