Ladera Ranch Animal Neurology Clinic

We are proudly the first and only veterinary center serving Ladera Ranchto specialize in neurology and imaging for dogs and cats. Our state-of-the-art facility provides everything patients need to receive quality care right here in Orange County.

Your pet should have access to quality medical care, so that it can live a long, healthy life with you. Unfortunately, there are limited resources available for dogs and cats in the field of veterinary neurology. To help solve this issue, Bright Care Animal Neurology and Imaging was opened as a neurological center for pets. We specialize in the treatment and research of complications that can happen in the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system.
