Veterinary sites

  • Brain Tumors In Dogs And Cats
    This web page provides information on what is known about the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of different types of brain tumor and describes ongoing research efforts at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine.
  • Budgerigar Brain Atlas
    This atlas of the budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) brain was prepared from 49 transverse sections 25 micrometers apart, ranging from 6.00 mm anterior to 6.00 mm posterior to the interaural line.
  • Canine Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis
    This site provides basic information on canine ceroid lipofuscinosis and has instructions on the DNA test for certain affected breeds.
  • Cavalier King Charles Syringomyelia
    Syringomyelia is an inherited condition in Cavaliers that varies in severity. This site describes the signs, diagnostic tests, and treatments.
  • Center For Paralysis Research
    The Center For Paralysis Research was founded to both develop and test promising methods of treatment for spinal cord injuries. The Center utilizes its close affiliation with the Department Of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, School Of Veterinary Medicine, to move basic laboratory methods into clinically meaningful veterinary testing with naturally occurring cases of dog spinal cord injuries.
  • Dr O'Brien's: Epilepsy site
    This site has lots of great information for owners of epileptic dogs and cats.
  • Dr. Boothe's: Pharmacology web site
    Dr. Boothe's pharmacology lab can measure serum levels of zonisamide, bromide, and phenobarbital.
  • Dr. Clemmon's: Degenerative Myelopathy German Shepherd Dogs
    This web site describes the signs, diagnoses, and treatment of degenerative myelopathy based on Dr. Clemmon's experiences. It discusses the use of exercise, dietary supplements, aminocaproic acid, acetylcysteine, vitamin E, and many other natural supplements or herbs.
  • European College Of Veterinary Neurology
    The European College of Veterinary Neurology (ECVN) functions to advance veterinary neurology in Europe by authenticating veterinarians as specialists in veterinary neurology and by furthering knowledge relating to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapy and the control of diseases affecting the nervous system of animals. Diplomates are recognised as specialists by the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.
  • European Society Of Veterinary Neurology
    The European Society of Veterinary Neurology (ESVN) was founded in 1987 and serves as a forum for persons interested in all aspects of the nervous system of animals, promotes training programs in veterinary neurology, provides an opportunity for collaborative clinical research throughout Europe.
  • Genetic disease laboratories
    veterinary genetic disease research and genetic disease detection services for purebred animals.
  • Living with an epileptic dog
    This site is another site that has some good information for owners of epileptic dogs.
  • Neuroanatomy
    A website entirely dedicated to the neuroanatomy and related issues of a number of different species. A comparative examination of the relative sizes of brains, the relative sizes of brain structures, and the relative behavior of different species.
  • Neuromuscular Case Presentations
    Comparative Neuromuscular Laboratory, University of California - San Diego, Case Presentation. In addition to specific case presentations (many of which have video clips, muscle biopsy specimens, EMGs, and other advanced diagnostics), monthly topics include muscle biopsy techniques and anesthetic considerations of patients with myopathies. Site contains information about hereditary neuromuscular diseases, plus additional links and email addresses for research being conducted.
  • Neuromuscular Diagnostic Laboratory
    Provides information on the classification and diagnostic work-up of myopathies affecting horses (glycogen branching enzyme deficiency, polysaccharide storage myopathy, et.), as well as several neuromuscular conditions affecting other large animals.
  • Spike's disease or Canine Epileptoid Cramping Syndrome
    This site describes the ill-defined syndrome of muscle spasms noted in Border Terriers. Photographs and video of affected dogs, diagnostics and diet and treatment suggestions are listed.
  • The Glasgow Coma Scale
    A 2001 study found that the modified Glasgow Coma Scale is a useful index for prediction of outcome in dogs with head trauma. The clinician simply assigns a numerical value for the patient in three categories (motor activity, brain stem reflexes, and level of consciousness) to obtain a total score which is prognostic in over 50 percent of cases.
  • Veterinary Neurology And Neurosurgery
    This site is intended to be an international on-line medium for rapid publication of high-quality peer-reviewed clinical and research information, continuing education, news, etc. The site has a monthly case quiz, videos of various neurological conditions, and peer-reviewed papers.
  • Veterinary Ophthalmology website
    The home page of University of California Veterinary Ophthalmology Service contains comparative anatomy notes and photographs of ocular pathology, as well as clinically observed normal and abnormal ocular conditions. Good self-testing section using excellent fundic photos. The interesting Eye Simulation section is an interactive section simulating ocular movement and pupillary responses to light.
  • White Cats, Eye Color, And Deafness
    Very interesting review of the genetic link between eye color, coat color, and deafness in cats.

Human sites

General sites

  • Comparative Mammalian Brain Collections
    Images and information from one of the world's largest collection of well-preserved, sectioned and stained brains. Viewers can see and download photographs of brains of over 100 different species of mammals (including humans).
  • Deafness In Dogs and Cats
    Site contains information about genetics, prevalence of deafness, breeds of cats and dogs with congenital deafness, BAER testing and testing sites, causes of sudden deafness, and training deaf dogs.

A Friendly Reminder: You are ultimately responsible for the care of your patients. Recommendations and discussions of cases should be considered as recommendations by colleagues for you to consider in your case management decisions. Dosages should be confirmed prior to dispensing medications.
