Neurology & Neurosurgery

As a pet parent, there are fewer things more frightening than seeing your companion suffer an acute neurologic episode. In these circumstances, time is of the essence and getting the right help quickly could dramatially change the prognosis of your pet. 

Neurologic disorders can result from congenital defects, injuries or infections, cancer or  can be age-related, and  display a range  of symptoms and deficits including: paralysis or difficulty walking, tremors,  head tilt and seizures. Our team of board certified veterinary neurologists and neurosurgeons have extensive training and experience diagnosing and treating diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.

Imaging of the brain and/or spine is often indicated to help determine the exact cause of disease, and our neurology specialists have direct access to the most advanced digital diagnostic tools.  Oradell Animal Hospital houses state-of-the-art, diagnostic equipment such as a magnetic resonance imaging machine (MRI) and a computed tomography machine (CT).
