Neurological Care for Pets in Vancouver

At Columbia River Veterinary Specialists our board-certified veterinary neurologist provides comprehensive medical and surgical care for Vancouver pets with neurological conditions.

At your appointment, our neurology specialist will perform a detailed neurological exam to determine if, and what part of your pet's nervous system is affected.

After the exam, the neurologist will discuss the most likely causes for your pet's issues. We use diagnostic imaging and our state-of-the-art MRI services to determine the exact cause and what available treatment option is best for your pet. Treatment might include medical therapy, surgery, and/or intensive care.
