Our Veterinary Services
Welcome to the department of Veterinary Neurology and Neurosurgery at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital Palm Beach County. Veterinary Neurology deals with diseases of the pet’s nervous system: the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. This encompasses a wide range of neurological problems such as:
- Intervertebral disc disease
- Encephalitis and meningitis
- Brain and spinal tumors
- Degenerative myelopathy
- Vestibular Disease
- Wobbler Syndrome
- Head Trauma
- Vertebral Fractures
- Neuromuscular Disorders
These neurological disorders can cause great distress for your pet, and if not addressed timely, can lead to severe outcomes. While your primary veterinarian can diagnose and treat some of these health problems, certain diseases and conditions require advanced diagnostics and the expertise of a doctor who underwent a specialized and intensive training in veterinary neurology. That’s where services offered by a board-certified veterinary neurologist at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital Palm Beach County come in handy.
Our Veterinary Neurology Services include:
Your pet’s visit always starts with a comprehensive neurological examination. Based on this initial analysis, a doctor may recommend bloodwork, X-ray, or more advanced diagnostics to pinpoint the affected area and develop a more definitive diagnosis. Our state-of-the-art hospital is equipped with CT and MRI. We also offer Digital Myelography and Spinal Tap with Analysis.
After thorough examinations, our neurologist will discuss the diagnosis and various treatment options for your pet. We provide treatment and medical management for neurological conditions, such as seizures, strokes, brain tumors, spinal disorders, neuromuscular disease, meningitis, encephalitis, and more.
For more advanced neurological problems and certain traumas, our neurologist might recommend surgery to guarantee the best outcome for your pet. Our expertise includes surgeries for intervertebral disc disorder (IVDD), spinal and skull fracture repair, atlantoaxial stabilization, spinal tumor removals, and more.
