Upcoming Continuing Education Event

A Review of the Down Animal and When to Refer

Presented by,
Christine Senneca, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology)
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Veterinarians are often presented with patients that are non-ambulatory, and these cases have either an acute or chronic onset of signs. In this lecture we will review the neurologic examination and neuro-localization for animals with spinal and neuromuscular disease, the most common differentials, and a few rather unusual causes of signs. Furthermore, we will discuss some important conditions that frequently mimic neurologic dysfunction and go through the recommended diagnostic steps, treatment options, and associated prognoses, including what can easily be performed at a primary care facility.
Lecture provides 1 credit of complimentary CE to veterinarians and veterinary technicians through RACE.

Complimentary dinner and meet and greet starts at 7:00pm. Session begins at 7:30pm followed by Q&A.

340 Lancaster Ave
Malvern, PA 19355

On-Site MRI
Available November 2017

High-resolution, fast, and accurate, this state-of-the-art machine will provide patients with the advanced diagnostic imaging they need for higher-quality care.


A sick pet is stressful enough for clients without considering the cost of quality care. We want to provide patients with the technology they deserve at a price clients can afford. We are proud to offer competitive pricing packages for our MRI imaging services.


With state-of-the-art equipment and highly-trained and skilled staff, we take every measure to ensure that patients undergo procedures as safely and efficiently as possible at our hospital. With an on-site MRI, patients can have a scan performed, and when applicable, be transferred seamlessly to either surgery or additional diagnostics without experiencing multiple anesthetic inductions. Despite the safety and overall benefits of anesthetics, complications can arise and with fewer inductions performed on a patient within a short period of time, the risk significantly declines. We also offer MRI scanning on an outpatient basis.


Our state-of-the-art GE 1.5T Signa 9x MRI provides fantastic image quality with a four channel multi-coil for convenient, time-tested responses as well as many optional coils for specialized applications and a broader diagnostic scope. With a board-certified neurologist on-site, we can scan and review results for a diagnosis in minutes.
