Veterinary Neurology

If your pet has a neurological issue, the board certified specialist at Columbia River Veterinary Spcialists is trained and equipped to handle it. Our neurologist and supporting team are experts at diagnosing and treating disorders of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.

Our neurologist can make a determination as to whether cancer cells are present, and will meet with you to discuss the course of the disease, additional recommended diagnostics, treatment options, side effects and the ultimate prognosis. We believe one of the keys to successful treatment is clear communication between our team and you—and we’ll ensure you have all the information you need as you work with us to choose the best course of care. Common disorders that are treated include:

  • Caudal Cervical Sponydylomyelopathy (Wobbler’s disease)
  • Caudal Occipital Malformation Syndrome or Chiari-like Malformation
  • Head Trauma or Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Infectious Diseases Involving the Nervous System
