What is a Veterinary Neurologist?
Our neurologists are board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM). This means they have completed an undergraduate education, 4 years of veterinary school, at least 1 year-long internship, and a 3 year residency program prior to passing rigorous certifying examinations.
A board certified veterinary neurologist can diagnose and treat a wide variety of diseases affecting the nervous system, including:
Diseases of the brain: seizure disorders, encephalitis, meningitis, congenital malformations, trauma, and tumors
Diseases of the spinal cord: intervertebral disc disease, Wobbler’s disease, degenerative myelopathy, lumbosacral stenosis, vertebral malformations, spinal fractures, and spinal tumors
Diseases of the muscles and/or nerves: myasthenia gravis, neuropathies, and myopathies
