Southeast Veterinary Neurology of Miami

Southeast Veterinary Neurology of Miami, FL

The Most Trusted Veterinary Neurology Team

Southeast Veterinary Neurology (SEVN) of Miami is the first and only hospital in Miami that exclusively treats neurological disorders in dogs and cats.  These conditions include seizures, brain tumors, vertigo, strokes, Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD), and other causes of paralysis.  Staffed 24/7, there is a board-certified veterinary neurologist on-site for whenever your pet’s neurological condition surfaces.  We are the only facility in Miami-Dade, Broward and Monroe counties with in-house high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Founded in 2010, we have become South Florida’s leader in neurosurgery, advanced imaging and veterinary neurology through years of experience and dedication.  We live by one philosophy:

Be there when you need us; treat each pet as if he or she were our own; offer the latest technology, expertise, and techniques.

These principles have helped us help over 20,000 pets recover their ability to walk.  We hope you never need us, but if you do, we are eager to help you and your pet!
