Our board-certified veterinary neurologists will thoroughly review your pet’s condition and a full examination will be performed. This includes a neurological examination which evaluates the brain, spinal cord, nerves and muscles. Board-certified neurologists have received extra training beyond veterinary school and must pass several rigorous examinations before becoming board-certified. Southeast Veterinary Neurology is fortunate to employ the only neurologists in Miami-Dade that are board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine specialty of Neurology.
Many of the conditions evaluated by a veterinary neurologist require advanced imaging. For the majority of neurological conditions, this is the only way to diagnose your pet’s condition. Southeast Veterinary Neurology utilizes the latest diagnostic technologies to accurately and appropriately manage your pet’s condition. Our neurologists may recommend some of the following tests:
- MRIMagnetic Resonance Imaging
- CTCat Scan
- Spinal Radiography
- BAERHearing Tests

- CSF Analysis Spinal Tap
