Dr. Sandhu has always loved animals. When he was a 10-year-old child, one of his pets became seriously ill. A veterinarian saved his dog’s life and ever since that day, Dr. Sandhu dreamed of becoming a veterinarian so he too could save animals lives.

When it was time to go to college, Dr. Sandhu’s parents sent him to traditional medical school. His parents were farmers and they wanted their son to become a human doctor. After the first semester, Dr. Sandhu left medical school to enroll in a veterinary college because his passion to serve animals was stronger than his parents wishes.

Many years later, Dr. Sandhu still enjoys caring for other people’s pets with dignity, respect and compassion. He is married with three children, two dogs and two cats.

In 2006 he was named one of America’s Top Veterinarians by the Consumers Research Council of America. Prior to that in 1997, he received a Best Veterinarian of India award by the Indian government.

In addition to offering comprehensive services for customers, Dr. Sandhu partners with local rescues to help care for the Valley’s homeless animals until they can find their forever homes.
