The diagnosis and treatment of neurological disease can be challenging for veterinarians. Many patients with an underlying neurological disorder present to their veterinarian with a variety of symptoms. Some common problems encompassed in the field of neurology are epilepsy, ruptured disks, spinal and head injuries, meningitis, neuromuscular disorders and cancer of the nervous system.

Diagnosing a specific neurological disorder may be very difficult at times. Our objectives are to obtain a complete health history of the patient, and perform a thorough physical examination. This will allow us to determine a diagnostic and therapeutic plan.

After the initial examination, Dr. Maguire may recommend specific diagnostic tests to help decide how to diagnose and treat your pet. Some of these tests may be performed at the time of your appointment, some diagnostic tests may need to be scheduled on another day. Any risks that may be involved with the procedure as well as a detailed estimate of costs will be discussed with you at the time of scheduling.
