The accurate diagnosis of neurological disease can often require the utilization of advanced diagnostic testing. When you bring your pet to Specialists in Companion Animal Neurology for a consultation, the doctor will speak with you in order to get a thorough understanding of your pet’s medical history and then perform a complete neurological examination. Next the doctor may recommend additional testing such as: radiographs (x-rays), electrodiagnostics, MRI and/or a spinal fluid analysis.
We’re equipped to perform routine radiography services to identify many types of illness or injury when pets are sick or suffer a trauma.
Magnetic resonance imaging, more commonly known as an MRI, is a highly useful tool used in veterinary medicine when more traditional diagnostic measures cannot provide an accurate diagnosis for diseases in the brain or the spinal cord.
