Ordering a MRI for Small Animals has the same indications and diagnostic benefits as MRI for humans. For example, if you were having undiagnosed neurological issues such as seizures or headaches, pain or numbness when walking, and negative diagnostic tests such as x-ray or ultrasound, your healthcare provider would certainly send you for an MRI exam or scan. These are the exact same reasons to order an MRI for your pets with similar symptoms. An MRI can give your veterinarian the critical information she and you need to properly diagnose the problem and develop a treatment plan with you in the best interest of your pet. We have many case studies demonstrating that the early, superior diagnostic quality of MRI frequently saves the life of your pet.

Some of the most common indications and reasons for MRI for Small Animals with neurological symptoms include:

• Seizures
• Suspected brain tumor such as meningioma
• Sudden behavioral changes such a circling or walking into objects
• New or chronic nasal discharge or difficulty breathing out of nose
• Sudden visual loss
• Trauma to head or body
• Difficulty walking, holding up one leg or dragging the back legs
• Getting a clear view of the anatomy before surgery
