Spinal surgery in dogs and cats is a specialised discipline in veterinary surgery. The surgery itself is complex. The post-operative care, prognosis and client difficulties make it a minefield.

Neurological tissue is the slowest tissue in the body to heal.  Predicting how long or even if recovery will take place is not an exact science.

NOAH (North Dublin Orthopaedic Animal Hospital) is a specialist in spinal surgery.
