Who do you suggest for vet teaching school for 2nd opinion?
If you had a neuromuscular issue in a dog, and vets couldn't figure it out, and you wanted to send records to a vet school for 2nd opinion, which would you recommend? (It's not my dog...just trying to give them suggestions.-Area doesn't matter since just records would be sent and regular vet could be in contact with them for testing...)
Cornell and MSU are very well respected. Dont rule out your local neurologist though, if you have just seen a GP so far. Sometimes hands on exams are more beneficial than just sending records.
Good point. You can probably find a specialist in the area. I just went through this with my dog who, it turns out, is allergic to everything. When I spoke with the family vet about my itchy dog, I was disappointed with the treatment options he suggested. I went home and googled dog dermatologist denver and found a couple of choices in the area. I booked an appointment with one of them, had a great conversation on our first visit and mapped out a good treatment plan. My dog feels better already. He's happy. I'm happy.
UPenn, absolutely, although I agree with the poster that I'm sure you can find a quality specialist in your part of the country, but since you did specifically request a vet school, I said UPenn - they have the highest caseload and have seen it all.
