Neurology & Neurosurgery

Our Neurology and Neurosurgery team led by Edward Ives, comprises of an experienced team of European Neurology Specialists, Neurology Residents, an Intern and a fantastic team of nurses, all supported by our on-site physiotherapy service. Together they provide a comprehensive medical neurology and neurosurgery service.

We have permanent, on-site high-field (1.5T) MRI and CT to enable advanced imaging of the brain and vertebral column, in addition to an electrodiagnostic unit for the investigation of neuromuscular diseases. This means that a wide range of neurological disorders affecting the brain, spinal cord, vertebrae, intervertebral discs, peripheral nerves, muscles and neuromuscular junction can be diagnosed and treated in dogs and cats of any age.

The neurology service works closely with the other specialty services to provide the best possible care and outcome for each patient that is referred to us. Frequently treated conditions include:

  • Idiopathic epilepsy
  • Brain tumours
  • Meningoencephalomyelitis of unknown origin (MUO)
  • Steroid responsive meningitis arteritis (SRMA)
  • Infectious (bacterial, fungal, viral, protozoal) meningoencephalomyelitis
  • Metabolic (hepatic, renal, endocrine, other) encephalopathies
  • Cerebrovascular accidents (strokes)
  • Vestibular syndrome
  • Facial paralysis and other cranial nerve deficits
