Meet the friendly staff at Vet San Francisco!
Dr. Jatinderpal Chahal is a General Practitioner and co-owner of Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital.
As a child growing up in Punjab, India, Dr. Chahal experienced the loss of a family dog to a splenic tumor, which affected him in such a manner that it encouraged him to seek a life caring for animals. He adds, “I grew up in a rural environment in close proximity to animals. I fed cattle and dogs and developed a relationship with these animals, which guided me to become a veterinarian.”
For his veterinary studies, Dr. Chahal attended the College of Veterinary Science at Punjab Agriculture University and received his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2004. His areas of professional interest include internal medicine, surgery, and laser surgery and therapy. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association.
