Neurology

The veterinary neurology service at VCA Canada C.A.R.E. Centre specializes in diagnosing, treating and managing all aspects of neurological diseases in dogs and cats. Pets can suffer from many neurological diseases including: epilepsy, meningitis or spinal cord disorders and the neurology service can provide the expertise and advice that can help family veterinarians and owners when their pets are affected with these disorders.

The neurological system is a complex network of pathways and centers that include among other structures the brain, cerebellum, spinal cord, peripheral nerves and muscles. During a consultation with the neurology service a very detailed, specially tailored history is taken to highlight the functions of the nervous system. A thorough examination of different components of the nervous system is performed and if it is indicated, state-of-the art diagnostic aids are also available including CT scan and MRI to help us understand the complex nature of the nervous system.
