April 22-26, 2019 at VSC
Does your pet have a skin problem that’s hard to manage? Do you need a second opinion about your pet’s skin? A visit to a dermatologist may be the next step for you!
UPDATE: Please note all appointment times with Dr. Pye are now full. No further patient visits can be booked. Please watch our website and Facebook page for updates on future visits by Dr. Pye.
The Veterinary Specialty Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador is excited to announce we will be hosting Dr. Charlie Pye, Veterinary Dermatologist, from April 22 - 26 at our hospital.
Why should you consider a dermatology consultation for your pet?
A dermatologist specializes in diseases affecting the skin, such as allergies. While your family veterinarian can diagnose and treat many skin conditions, a dermatologist has advanced training and experience specifically focusing on skin diseases. A veterinary dermatologist compliments the work your family veterinarian has started.
How can you see Dr. Pye?
Dr. Pye will see patients by referral only. Please contact your family veterinarian for more information regarding the testing and to request a referral.
Please note: Dr. Pye has limited availability so be sure to ask your family veterinarian to get your information in early.
