Welcome to PASE Neurology & Neurosurgery

The goal of the PASE Neurology team is to diagnose and treat disorders of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles. Our specialists strive to help pet owners understand their pets' condition and develop a treatment plan that is the best option for the whole family. Our team of board-certified neurologists will initially perform a thorough neurological examination to help determine what part of the nervous system is affected and then will develop a diagnostic plan utilizing specialized equipment, including MRI and CT, to help determine the cause of the problem and available treatment options.
