Dr. Adam Schneider was born and raised in northern California and is excited to experience life on this side of the border (albeit perhaps not the winters). After completing his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz – Dr. Schneider went on to study veterinary medicine at Washington State University – graduating in 2011. He remained at WSU for another year in order to complete a rotating internship, during which he published multiple papers including novel research in minimally invasive brain biopsies in dogs – a special interest of Dr. Schneider’s.
While completing his residency in neurology and neurosurgery at the Maine Veterinary Medical Center, Dr. Schneider further contributed to the veterinary community as an associate professor at St. George’s University in Grenada.
Dr. Schneider participated in the development of specialized neuronavigation tools – utilized in performing minimally invasive brain biopsies in dogs – and he intends to bring this cutting-edge technology to Toronto. Along with this special interest some of Dr. Schneider’s other areas of concentration include brain tumours, disc disease and seizures.
Dr. Schneider is excited to be joining the team at the VEC and to continue to develop the neurology service at the hospital.
