Often such a treatment plan also includes surgery. For example, for a hernia, in which dogs sometimes develop paralysis very quickly and have a lot of pain, surgery is often necessary. Speed is also important. At the ‘Hart van Brabant’ animal hospital, our emergency doctors are there for you 24/7 and we always do our best to give the animal the best care as soon as possible.
After surgery, physiotherapy is often recommended. By working with colleagues in this department, we can give our patients an even better chance of a good recovery. We work in the hospital together with the physiotherapy practice 'Fysio voor Dieren'.
Owners sometimes ask the question: 'Does it make sense to use an MRI scan to look for a problem in my animal's brain? There's nothing you can do about that,' A good example to the contrary, that we can do something about it, is the case below where our team, led by our anesthesiologist Jiske l'Ami and neurosurgeon Niklas Bergknut, removed a brain tumor in a cat. In this way, we work together with all our specialist colleagues from various departments to help our patients as well as possible.

After the first visit to the neurologist, one or two control visits are often scheduled, to monitor the therapy and patient and adjust it where necessary. After that, if possible, the check visits are made to the referring veterinarian.
On behalf of all our team members, we wish all our neurology patients the best. Do you have an animal with a neurological problem under treatment as a veterinarian, or do you own it? Feel free to contact our animal hospital Hart van Brabant.
