The Neurosurgery and Neurology service functions to provide high level medical and surgical neurology support for pet owners and veterinarians in Mississippi and the surrounding states. The majority of appointments are seen at the Veterinary Specialty Center (1207 Highway 182W), an affiliate of the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. There, advanced imaging using our 3T MRI or 64-slice CT scanner can diagnose commonly seen diseases such as brain and spinal cord tumors, strokes, intervertebral disk disease (IVDD), including wobblers and LS syndrome, infectious granulomas, meningitis, congenital conditions such as hydrocephalus and pug myelopathy, and skull and spine fractures. Many patients can be evaluated, have imaging performed and be discharged same day if an MRI is pre-booked on the advice of your family veterinarian. Patients requiring hospitalization for surgical or medical treatment are transported to the MSU-CVM. At MSU-CVM, we have access to many other specialists to provide full coverage for our patients such as radiology, internal medicine, oncology, soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, behavior, dermatology, dental and ophthalmology. If your pet requires surgery, our surgery suites are fully staffed with surgery nurses and anesthesia personnel. To schedule an appointment, have your family veterinarian make a referral by calling 662.325.7339.
