Eastcott Referrals Neurology Team

Our Neurology team are here to investigate and treat pets with neurological disorders

Following an in-depth consultation and neurological assessment they use a variety of advanced diagnostic procedures to get to the bottom of the problem. Our facilities include advanced imaging using MRI and CT, as well as electromyography to assess the function of the nerves and muscles, and cerebrospinal fluid analysis. The team works closely with other specialists from across the hospital as part of an holistic approach to patient care.
