Specializing in Canine and Feline 
Neurology and Neurosurgery since 1986

For over 30 years, the Veterinary Neurological Center has been providing comprehensive medical and surgical care for patients with neurological disorders, such as seizures, back pain and limb weakness/paralysis. Led by a team of board-certified neurologists and neurosurgeons, the entire staff of the VNC is dedicated to providing the finest service to clients, their pets and the veterinarians who refer them.

Why Visit a Board-Certified Veterinary Neurologist?

A veterinary neurologist is a veterinarian who undergoes further education and training in order to specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the nervous system. Those who complete additional testing become board-certified by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine. At the VNC, our board-certified neurologists provide medical and neurosurgical treatments for conditions of the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nervous system.
