Dr Sue Fitzmaurice


Consultant Neurologist

After graduating from the University of Sydney School of Veterinary Medicine, Sue completed a neurology residency at the University of Pennsylvania, during which time she was also able to perform neurosurgery on brain and spinal cases. Whilst working at the AHT, Sue described a familial myoclonic epilepsy in miniature wire-haired dachshunds, which was found on post-mortem to be Lafora’s disease. This work was presented as an abstract at the BSAVA, and ECVN conference. Collaboration led to the gene defect being found in the affected dogs and results were published in Science in 2005.

Sue became an ACVIM Diplomate in veterinary neurology in 1998 and has worked in referral practices since then. She is also an ECVN diplomate.

In 2010, Elsevier published her book ‘Saunders Solutions in Veterinary Practice: Small Animal Neurology’ which has since been translated into Japanese, Portuguese, Greek, and Spanish. Her clinical interests encompass all aspects of veterinary neurology.
