    Default 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...)

    MSU.
    A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.

    Might be a reason, never an excuse...

    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.
