Insight VSP is a certified and independent veterinary pathology service in Austin, TX. We are committed to providing quality ocular pathology services that meet the needs and expectations of veterinary ophthalmologists and general practitioners all over the United States. Our laboratory is headed by Dr. Christopher Reilly, who handles all aspects of the business - from tissue trimming, to readouts, to communication, and even billing!
We offer virtual rounds for training programs, second opinions, and a wide array of diagnostic immunohistochemistry.
Our aim is to build a lasting and rewarding relationship with every veterinarian – ophthalmologist, pathologist, oncologist, surgeon, or general practitioner – with whom we work. Contact us if you would like to discuss what Insight VSP can offer your clinic!
All tissue handling, trimming, documentation, interpretation, and reporting are done by Dr. Reilly. Samples are processed through the Histology Laboratory at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX. Their team of histotechnicians process the samples, and are very attentive to the needs of each case. They also process histochemical stains (e.g. PAS). Immunohistochemistry and many other special tests (e.g. PCR) are processed through the UC Davis VMTH.
Our goal is to be part of the patient care team. Whether the case is a simple eyelid mass or a more complicated intraocular process, we offer all available resources to get the most accurate - and practical - diagnosis possible.
We are always available to chat, and do our best to keep you updated as complicated cases are proceeding.
Together, we work to provide the best diagnostic complement to your patient management team!
Dr. Reilly went to veterinary school at Tufts University (2002), and then did an internship at NYC's Animal Medical Center (2002-2003). He completed his fellowship in Comparative Ocular Pathology at the Comparative Ocular Pathology Laboratory of Wisconsin in 2004. Once he finished the fellowship, he continued his pathology training with a residency in anatomic pathology at the University of California, Davis. After receiving his board certification in 2007, he spent a year in the corporate diagnostic world, then returned to UC Davis to be a clinical instructor. He then worked as an assistant professor from 2012 to 2016 and continues to collaborate with their ophthalmology and pathology sections, leading virtual rounds and reviewing ocular pathology cases.
