About the Site
NeuroWebVet was created to provide veterinarians with rapid online help for neurologic cases via “teleneurology”. We provide written and digital reports that can be easily added to the patient’s record. In addition to our consultation services, we have learning resources and the latest neurologic textbooks for sale. We also have a newsfeed to show interesting cases and bring you the latest in veterinary neurology.
What We Do
NeuroWebVet is a private independent business created and run by Drs Deena Tiches and Shirley Scott. Both are board-certified neurologists by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.
NeuroWebVet was founded with the intention of providing veterinary care in the field of small animal neurology to referring veterinarians in remote areas, whose clients are unable or unwilling to travel to a specialist clinic, or for those cases a veterinarian may want to keep “in house”.
We provide consultation directly to the referring veterinarian based upon history, examination, photographic, and video submissions. We are not permitted by law to give any veterinary advice directly to the pet owner. However, the pet owner is often in the best position to provide videos to the referring veterinarian in cases where the neurologic symptoms are episodic.
