Urgent - need Neurologist for dog

Hi all!

Friend of mine has a bulldog diagnosed with hydrocephaly so not a good prognosis.

Before taking a decision she would like a second opinion from a second Neurologist.

Do any of you have a recommendation?

Zurich region - preferably towards Zug/Luzern etc.

Thanks

K

Re: Urgent - need Neurologist for dog

Dr Frank Steffen is a very highly respected neurologist.

I saw him when Hooligan first began having seizures, he was very helpful is mapping out a sensible route towards diagnosis. I like him very much. Currently we are investigating a new bizarrre behavior that might or might not be neurological, so my primary vet sent him the films - if needed we will see him again.

He is usually at the Tierspital:

He also consults at several area practices. You will likely need a referral from your Haustierartz.


Sending lots of cyber hugs to your friend - that's a very a tough situation to be in.

Re: Urgent - need Neurologist for dog

This is also of interest for me.

FIP or Lymphoma

My cat has also fluids in the brain.
One vet thinks (thought) it was lymphoma. The second one, a FIP virus.

After taking steroids she has improved greatly, but she has balance problems and a hard time to stand on her legs.

The vet said that the fluids may have cause some damages in her brain and I was thinking of having her checked by a neurologist.

Thank you Meloncoilie for the referral.

I can also recommend Dr. Steffen. He operated on one of our dogs about 6 years ago at his clinic in Luzern.
