Stroke (cerebrovascular accident) Owner Factsheet

Until recently, it was thought that strokes were very rare in domestic pets. In the last few years, with the advance and increased availability of more specialist tests strokes are being recognised more often in pets.

With appropriate care your pet may do very well.
