Dr. Dhillon is a very passionate and dedicated veterinarian. His love for animals began at a young age on the family’s farm, which eventually led him into this noble profession. In 1991, he received his Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Animal Husbandry and completed his Master’s in Veterinary Immunology in 1994. He completed a one-year clinical rotation at Purdue University (USA) where he developed a special interest in diagnostic medicine, particularly ultrasound and endoscopy. Dr. Dhillon worked as an ultrasound consultant in New Jersey (USA) performing up to 20 ultrasound cases per day.
In April 1999, it was time to pursue his dream to practice his personal philosophy of health through science and compassion and he opened Oak Animal Hospital in Vancouver. His continued commitment and dedications to high quality patient care led Oak Animal Hospital into an AAHA certified practice which has been awarded the grater Vancouver “Consumer Choice Award” for the last 10 years.
In 2008 he founded Ultra-mobile Pet Diagnostics where he provides mobile pet ultrasound and endoscopy services to other small animal hospitals in Greater Vancouver to raise the level of veterinary care to patients in need.
While managing Oak Animal Hospital and providing mobile pet ultrasound services in Vancouver, he completed his diplomat status of American Board of Veterinary Practitioners (canine & feline) to dedicate his knowledge and experience to help his clients and care for his patients.
In 2015 Dr. Dhillon listened to his clients and patients needs for a 24 hour animal emergency hospital in Vancouver that provided routine and emergency care, cost effectively with no emergency fee. Burrard Animal Hospital + Emergency opened its doors in March 2015 to provide emergency care with in-depth of diagnostics using in-house lab, digital radiography, ultrasound, endoscopy, intensive care unit and surgery.
