Your pet can be referred to SASH’s dedicated neurology service for problems with the brain, spinal cord, nerves or muscles.

At SASH, that means seeing Dr Georgina Child, one of the only registered Specialist Veterinary Neurologists in Australia. With years of experience, Dr Child is compassionate, understanding and is known across Australia for her excellent management of patients with complex neurological problems.

Symptoms of neurological disease can include:

  1. • fits (seizures)
  2. • weakness
  3. • paralysis
  4. • changes in behaviour
  5. • loss of senses (blindness, deafness)
  6. • lack of coordination

To investigate further, we may recommend blood tests, specialised imaging (such as CT or MRI scans), spinal taps, or nerve and muscle biopsies.
