Sue Fitzmaurice


Head of Neurology + Neurosurgery

Sue graduated from the University of Sydney Veterinary School in Australia and completed her speciality training in Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University of Pennsylvania. She has worked in referral practices in England  as a specialist for the past few decades. In 1997, Sue identified Lafora disease as an inheritable problem in the Mini Wirehaired Dachshund. And in 2009, she wrote a Small Animal Neurology textbook.

Here at The Ralph, Sue is responsible for investigating and treating many neurological conditions that our patients may be experiencing. These can include seizures, loss of balance, paralysis, collapse, behavioural change, neck or back pain, facial paralysis and blindness to name but a few! Sue provides a specialist-level Neurology service in which we tailor the diagnostic and treatment plan to match the needs of our patients. She also works with our other clinical services to ensure our patients benefit from a holistic approach to their care.

In her spare time, Sue can be found on on the croquet lawns, trying to lower her handicap. She also enjoys the British flora and countryside footpaths (so much so, that she won’t be leaving the UK!).  When at work, Sue can usually be found having cuddles with our patients. She doesn’t have any pets of her own at the moment but her ambition is to share her home with a Mini Wirehaired Dachshund. Watch this space….!
