After the neurologist has localized your pet’s particular neurological problem on examination, further testing is needed in an attempt to diagnose your pet’s individual condition. If an MRI is necessary, an estimate and consent form will be created for you to approve and sign. We require the low end of the estimate be left as a deposit towards your final bill.
The MRI is viewed real time by a BVNS board certified neurologist to ensure we obtain as much information on your pet’s condition as possible. Thus, the duration of the scan varies based on this need and what part of your pet’s body is being scanned. Because the duration of the scan depends on a number of factors, the MRI can potentially take several hours. We will do our best to set up an accurate time for you to return later in the day to view and discuss the MRI findings and treatment plan. Please be aware that this time is an estimate based on the daily flow and MRI schedule. Thus, there is always a possibility that you may have to wait additional time than previously estimated. We will do our best to call you and update you if we need you to return at a later time than previously discussed.
We appreciate your patience in our efforts to provide you the most information about your pet’s neurological condition. If you have any questions please contact BVNS at your convenience.
