Where it all started…

Dr. Trina Bailey grew up in Newfoundland and Labrador with a passion for animals and a love for her province. After leaving home to become a board-certified veterinary surgeon, she would often travel back to Newfoundland to support local veterinary practices by offering advanced surgical care to their patients.

Knowing the need for advanced veterinary care in the province, Dr. Bailey and her family permanently relocated back home to open the Veterinary Specialty Centre of Newfoundland and Labrador.

As the founder and managing director, Dr. Bailey is very proud to be part of the team bringing these services to the pets and people of her home province.
