Neurological surgery and rehabilitation
Operable neurological conditions include disc-related spinal cord compression and some spinal and brain tumors. Early diagnosis and surgical intervention can often ensure the best outcome, although malignant cancer survival times are often limited. Contact Neighborhood Veterinary Centers if you notice any of the above changes in your pet’s mental status, behavior, or mobility.
After surgery, pets are closely monitored for pain and neurological function. Physical rehabilitation is often recommended to accelerate recovery and restore mobility. Neighborhood Veterinary Centers provides in-house rehabilitation options, including laser therapy and underwater treadmill therapy.
