The VDL Pathology Section offers necropsy services, gross examination and histopathological evaluation (histochemistry, and immunohistochemistry ) of tissue samples.
Telephone consultation with a VDL pathologist prior to submission may be useful and is particularly encouraged if a case is complex or the diagnostic investigation is an ongoing series of submissions. Please call the laboratory (515-294-1950) and talk to one of the diagnostic pathologists at any time if you have questions concerning specimen selection or preservation.
Dr. Piñeyro obtained his DVM in 1999 from the Facultad de Ciencias Veterinarias, Universidad Nacional de la Plata in Buenos Aries, Argentina. He spent several years in private practice working with food animals in Argentina, and returned to the Universidad Nacional de la Plata where he worked in the food animal diagnostic laboratory and field investigation unit while completing a Doctorate in Veterinary Science (swine influenza). Dr. Piñeyro came to the U.S. and earned a Master of Veterinary Science degree (Vibrio parahaemolyticus) in 2010 while working in the VDL at Washington State University. He then went on to complete a Pathology Residency program and will soon earn a PhD degree (molecular virology and immunology of PCV and PRRSV) from Virginia Tech.
