• Balance disorders (inner ear or brainstem disease)
• Brain tumors or trauma
• Congenital (present since birth) anomalies
• Degenerative myelopathy (loss of nerve function caused by disorders of the spine)
• Excessive fluid build-up within the brain (Hydrocephalus)
• Facial of jaw paralysis
• Infections of inflammation (Meningitis, Encephalitis)
• Limb paralysis or weakness due to herniated intervertebral discs
• Peripheral nerve disease (neuropathies, such as Myasthenia Gravis)
• Seizures
• Spinal fractures or tumors
• Swallowing difficulties (Dysphagia)

Dr. Huska performs a complete and thorough physical examination on your animal, and based on these initial findings, additional tests will be discussed. Depending on your animal’s condition, diagnostic testing or treatments may include:

• Advanced laboratory testing of various blood and tissue samples
• Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) collection and analysis
• Diagnostic Imaging – radiography (x-rays, myelography), CT scans, MRIs
• Surgical correction of herniated intervertebral discs or congenital defects; removal of tumors.
