Treatment

 

Care is dependent on the symptoms that appear and the diagnosis your veterinarian settles on. Severe clinical signs will require hospitalization and immediate treatment. Different causes require different treatment, and no drugs or therapies should be administered until a diagnosis has been reached.

 

Living and Management

 

Specific diseases require various methods of follow up care; however repeat neurological examinations to monitor progress are generally the main requirement.
