Vestibular Disease in the Cat

Peripheral and Central Vestibular Disease

Vestibular disease in the cat is divided into two main categories: peripheral and central.  PeripheralVestibular Disease in the Cat diseases constitute all disorders arising from everything outside of the central nervous system (brain, brainstem, spinal cord).  This includes ear disease, metabolic disease, and peripheral nerve disease.  Central vestibular disease consists of all brain, brainstem, and spinal cord diseases.  Generally speaking, peripheral carries a better prognosis than central disease.
