Neurological Pet Care We Offer

Our state-of-the-art animal hospital is fully equipped to handle any neurological problems your pet may have. Some of the procedures we may perform include:

  • MRI: a medical imaging technique that generates internal images which can be used to diagnose brain, spinal cord, or nerve diseases.

  • CT scan: an enhanced x-ray imaging technique that can be used to diagnose a variety of internal issues.

  • Biopsy: a medical test that involves extracting a small sample of cells or tissue to determine if a tumor or other abnormal growth is cancerous

  • Spinal tap: a specialized procedure in which a needle is inserted into an animal’s spinal canal to collect cerebrospinal fluid to diagnose a wide range of potential problems.

After your pet has been seen and tested by our skilled veterinary neurologist, they will receive a diagnosis and a customized treatment plan that may include medication, surgery, and/or physical therapy. If you have any questions about the neurological services and procedures we offer at Animal Specialty & Emergency Center of Brevard, please give us a call at (321) 725-5365 or email us at [email protected]
