Skye Stanley, DVM, DACVIM
Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine


Dr. Skye Stanley received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State University.  He completed a one-year rotating internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the world-renowned Animal Medical Center (AMC) in New York City and completed a rigorous residency program in internal medicine, also at the AMC.  Following completion of his residency program, Dr. Stanley became a board-certified specialist with Diplomate status from the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (DACVIM).  Dr. Stanley subsequently joined VCA Fifth Avenue Veterinary Specialists in NYC where he served as an internal medicine specialist and medical director for nearly a decade. 

Dr. Stanley greatly enjoys teaching students and contributing to the veterinary community by giving continuing education lectures.  He has also published several papers in the veterinary literature.  Previously, he was a faculty lecturer and clinical instructor at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine where he was responsible for training residents, interns, and veterinary students.  Dr. Stanley has also worked in private practice in Southern California and given several educational lectures to the referring veterinarian community. 

Recently, Dr.  Stanley was honored and inducted by his peers as a distinguished practitioner and fellow by the National Academy of Practice for Veterinary Medicine.  He remains as one of the youngest doctors to ever receive this high distinction.

Dr. Stanley has a wide variety of clinical interests including nasal disease, gastroenterology, endocrinology, liver and kidney disorders, respiratory and laryngeal disorders, and infectious and immune-mediated diseases.  He also enjoys the problem-solving nature and ‘putting the pieces of the puzzle together’ with complicated cases in internal medicine by critically evaluating what treatments and diagnostics have already been performed as well as taking a thorough history and performing a complete hands-on physical exam of his patients.  In addition, he is highly proficient in advanced diagnostic procedures such as abdominal ultrasound and a wide variety of endoscopic procedures including rhinoscopy, upper and lower GI endoscopy, esophageal and gastric foreign body removal, bronchoscopy, esophageal stricture dilation, and feeding tube placement; he also performs bone marrow aspirates.

In his leisure time, Skye enjoys exercising, reading, meditation, golf, challenging crossword puzzles, keeping up with current events, and being an advocate for charity organizations and pets.
