With board-certified specialists and a nationally recognized faculty, Auburn provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your animal at the level only rivaled at a university medical center.
Cutting-edge animal health care, clinical trials to develop new, safe, and effective treatments, and the most advanced training availble to veterinarians, benefit not only the residents of Alabama, but our nation and our world.
Strong relationships with referring veterinarians foster the very best care for both patients and clients. Challenging cases that require comprehensive diagnostics, imaging or therapies are sent to the hospital by your family verinarian. This relationship ensures that animals receive the benefit of the latest clinical trials, research and treatment protocols available.
The College of Veterinary Medicine prides itself in meeting the needs of not only its students, but one of its greatest assets- its employees. Resources available here are aimed at providing a comprehensive guide to meeting employee needs, and include information such as the Student/Faculty Directory, Media Resources, Campus Safety Procedures, IIT, etc.
From the early work of Dr. Charles Allen Cary more than a century ago, to the development of some of the world's most advanced veterinary programs, Auburn has influenced the character and scope of veterinary medicine.
The country's seventh oldest veterinary school and the oldest in the South, Auburn today boasts one of the nation's preeminent institutions for research, teaching, diagnosis, and treatment in many specialties of small and large animal medicine.
All activities associated with students in the professional veterinary degree program are coordinated through the College of Veterinary Medicine Office of Academic Affairs. These activities include, but are not limited to:
The Neurology service provides diagnostic and consultation services as well as medical and surgical treatments for diseases of the central (CNS) and peripheral (PNS) nervous system.
The diagnostic capabilities include the uses of electrodiagnostics, regular and contrast radiology, computerized tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Therapeutic modalities include intracranial and spinal surgeries, linear accelerator radiation therapy, and chemotherapeutic medical management.
Initiating a Referral
Referring veterinarians should contact us at 334-844-4690 for available appointments or use the online referral form provided.
Making an Emergency Referral
If a case is thought to be an emergency by the referring veterinarian, he or she should indicate so to the appointment secretary and she will try to place you in contact with a receiving neurologist. If contact is not possible at the moment, she will make every effort to get the message to the receiving neurologist quickly so that he or she can return a call. A discussion with the receiving neurologist is necessary so appropriate therapy can be initiated prior to transfer and that the patient will be able to cared for in the most efficient manner when it arrives at the AU-Small Animal Teaching Hospital.
What about work completed prior to referral?
On occasion, we will request certain work to be completed prior to referral. This is important to expedite the patients stay with us, to assure the need for referral, and to compare results at a later time.
Important Owner Information About Referral
The neurological examination fee is usually around $90 to $165 for the office call. Seldom will the office call produce the diagnosis: it usually heads us in the right direction. After the examination has been performed additional diagnostic test(s) will be discussed with the owner and choices made as to how to proceed with regards to time, money and risk/benefit to the patient.
A written estimate for the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches will be provided the owner. It is almost impossible to complete a work-up in the day they arrive. Owners should be made aware that they should plan on leaving the patient at least overnight or longer or plan on staying at one of the hotels in the area.
The initial receiving will take 1 to 2 hours. We do use these cases to teach veterinary students and they must be involved in the discussion, which increases the time spent with each case.
