Neurology

The Neurology service provides cutting-edge care to patients with neurological issues. We understand how difficult it can be to care for an animal with a complex neurological disorder. Our specialists are leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of disorders.

Our patients benefit from clinical trials conducted at the Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital to develop more effective treatment. We also work with other specialists like radiologists, pathologists, anesthesiologists and internists to give our patients the best possible treatment plan.
