Advanced Neurological Diagnostic Services for Dogs
Dogs can suffer from a wide range of neurological disorders, many of them similar to human conditions; others unique to the canine species. The ANIC has the advanced technology and specialized training to accurately diagnose your pet.
Diagnostic services may begin with an in-person or phone consultation between our doctors and the emergency or primary care veterinarian. If we need to see your dog at our clinic, we have the capacity to perform:
- A specialized neurological examination
- Advanced imaging—MRI and CT scan
- Spinal tap
Our in-house lab and partnerships with area labs also allow us to perform blood draws and biopsies and get rapid results.
Advanced Neurological Treatment for Dogs
The neurologists at The ANIC offer a wide range of treatments, including medication and/or neurosurgery.
Although the State of New Mexico does not prohibit primary care veterinarians from performing neurosurgery, our neurologists are the only specialists with the right training and experience to perform these sophisticated procedures, giving your dog a better chance for recovery.
When to Bring Your Dog to The ANIC
Not all neurologic symptoms indicate an emergency situation, but you never have to wonder if your dog is experiencing life-threatening symptoms or not. Contact The ANIC any time to speak to trained staff who will help you determine if your dog needs neurological intervention right away or may wait for a scheduled appointment.
