Dr. Haroush doesn’t only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet’s problems. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.
Welcome to the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at Animal Health Center, where specialized veterinary, medical, and surgical care is provided for animals with neurological diseases.
Animal Health Center at Veterinary Village is the only privately owned, state-of-the-art animal hospital in the tri-state area to have 24/7 access to the most advanced non-invasive diagnostic tool, the 1.5 tesla MRI, considered the golden standard in human medicine.
This superior imaging modality uses a 1.5 tesla to produce superior contrast resolution of images that can be manipulated real-time for enhanced viewing. This powerful magnet is most effectively used to scan organs, soft tissue, and enclosed structures. Plus it’s diagnostic superiority and non-invasive nature make it ideal for pre-surgical planning.
The MRI is the most accurate and effective option for diagnostic imaging- plus we will provide you with a radiology report within 24 hours.
At our state-of-the-art animal hospital, our team is headed by board-certified neurologists and veterinarians, each specialized in the neurological diseases of animals. Our expertise in neurologic assessment and our full range of non-invasive diagnostic imaging methods allow us to quickly and effectively provide treatment plans for patients with neurological disorders. Our deep commitment to employ the most cutting-edge and least invasive methods, ensure that under our care, each animal will experience the best quality of life possible.
Just like humans, animals can experience a range of challenges with their nervous system, including pain, weakness in their limbs, seizures, and issues with coordination, among others. The mission of our Neurology and Neurosurgery Department is to diagnose and effectively manage neurologic disorders in animals, which affect the brain inner ear, spinal cord, and vertebrae, and diseases, which affect the muscles, nervous system, and neuromuscular junction.
