Understanding Your Pet’s Symptoms

Like people, dogs and cats have a nervous system consisting of a brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. The nervous system helps the body interact with its surroundings through vision, touch, smell, hearing, and balance. It also tells the rest of the body what to do by initiating and controlling movements.

When the nervous system is unhealthy, the symptoms can be dramatic. While neurological symptoms alone can’t tell us exactly what the problem is, they can tell us where the problem is.

Symptoms of a neurological disorder may vary, but they should all be taken seriously. Contact us as soon as possible
so we can evaluate your pet.

Common Conditions We Treat

Helping people understand their pets’ conditions and offering them answers—and hope—is what we love most about what we do. Neurological cases can be complex, confusing, and intimidating to pet parents, but a pet neurologist can clarify these issues and lay out a plan to help you resolve them. Since we focus exclusively on conditions of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles, your pet will receive expert care from every member of our team.

At Southeast Veterinary Neurology (SEVN), our specialists are able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of neurological disorders in dogs and cats. Here are some of the most common conditions we treat.
