Neurology

The neurology service specializes in evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and management of naturally occurring disorders of the nervous system seen in companion animals.
Just like us humans, pets can experience a wide range of nervous system conditions, some of which are:

› Idiopathic Epilepsy (seizures of unknown origin)
› Inflammation of the brain
› Lumbosacral Disease
› Fibrocartilaginous Embolism

These occur naturally (genetic predisposition/ birth defect) or is a result of an underlying condition. Commonly seen clinical signs (symptoms) include :

› Limb weakness (sometimes all four)
› Seizures (fits)
› In-coordination of the limbs
› Twitch skin Syndrome
› Self Mutilation Syndrome (inflicting wounds)
› Chewing part or parts of the body (tail, legs)
