Neurology & Neurosurgery

The Neurology Service at Balmesvet Veterinaris deals with nervous system diseases in cats and dogs.

We have the most advanced knowledge and diagnostic tools for the treatment of diseases such as:

  • Herniated discs.
  • Fractures, dislocations and vertebral malformations.
  • Vertebral, spinal and intracranial neoplasms. Convulsions.
  • Treatment of canine and feline idiopathic epilepsy.
  • Inflammatory or infectious problems (meningitis and meningoencephalitis).
  • Vascular problems.
  • Congenital malformations: hydrocephalus, syringomyelia.
  • Polyneuropathies.
  • Cognitive dysfunction syndrome.

All these diseases require an accurate diagnosis, which the neurologist can make based on a neurological examination, blood tests, examination of the cerebrospinal fluid and the most sophisticated imaging tests: digital radiology, myelography, CT and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

At Balmesvet we offer a 24-hour CT-CAT (computed tomography) service.
