Neurology Crash Course: What You REALLY Need to Know!
These 5 hours of lectures will be full of photos and videos of cases with the goals of making you more comfortable with neurological syndromes and how to manage them in dogs and cats. At the end of this course, you should be able to make a neurolocalization, determine central from peripheral vestibular lesions and formulate treatment plans, formulate treatment plans for a down spinal dog, and treat and prognosticate a dog or cat with traumatic brain injury.

Sheila Carrera-Justiz, DVM, is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine and board-certified by the American College of Internal Medicine in Neurology. She grew up in Miami, Florida and went to veterinary school at the University of Florida. She completed a rotating small animal internship at the University of Missouri and a neurology internship at the Veterinary Specialty Hospital of San Diego. She completed a residency in neurology at Tufts University in 2010 and became board-certified that year. She spent four years in private practice at the VCA West Los Angeles Animal Hospital and then moved into academia to pursue teaching. She lives in the swamp with a very cute dachshund, a silly Lab-mix, and a mutt who is missing his cerebellum! She enjoys seeing cases and teaching students, as well as running and eating her way around the world.
