The European College of Veterinary Neurology (ECVN) functions to advance veterinary neurology by authenticating veterinarians as specialists in veterinary neurology and by furthering knowledge relating to the pathogenesis, diagnosis, therapy and the control of brain surgerydiseases affecting the nervous system of animals. Diplomates are recognised as specialists by the European Board of Veterinary Specialisation and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons.


Diplomates have undergone extensive, well-defined training in small and large animal neurology and neurosurgery and have passed an in-depth examination lasting several days. The demanding process of board certification assures quality service to the public and their animals, which are treated by true specialists.
