Expert Care in Veterinary Neurology

Pet Neurology

Your pet’s nervous system is a complex network within the brain, spinal cord, and peripheral nerves. Disease in or injury to any of these three areas can cause problems in motor ability and sensory response. Symptoms of neurological issues in your pet might include weakness in limbs, impaired balance, seizures, visual problems, and pain.

The professionals of Northgate Animal Hospital see a variety of neurological cases and are able to evaluate and diagnose neurological diseases with symptoms such as weakness, seizures, back and neck pain, and abnormalities in gait. Many of our cases involve referral to a board-certified neurologist for further evaluation. A neurological evaluation may include CT and MRI imaging or other diagnostics, such as:

  • Spinal radiographs
  • Myelography
  • CSF fluid analysis

Our veterinary professionals treat your companion animal with compassion and expertise, and provide pet owners with the information and resources necessary to make informed decisions regarding veterinary care and treatment.
