Veterinary Neurology/Neurosurgery Services for Dogs & Cats


What is Veterinary Neurology?

Veterinary neurology is a specialized field within veterinary medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of neurological disorders in animals. It deals with conditions that affect the nervous system of pets, including the brain, spinal cord, and neuromuscular system (nerves and muscles).
