Dr. Shikher Singla is a General Practitioner and Co-Owner of Ocean Avenue Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Singla grew up in Punjab, India. As a young child, he would help stray kittens and dogs, eventually turning his home “into a small shelter and treating their wounds.” Seeing all the animals that were not able to get the medical attention they needed is what motivated Dr. Singla to become a veterinarian.
He earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from the College of Veterinary Science at Guru Angad Dev Veterinary and Animal Sciences University. He is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and his professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, and dentistry.
“The most amazing part of my job is when a sick pet comes in with its tail tucked in, and I am able to find and diagnose the issue,” he says. “To see this pet, who was once sick, leave with its tail wagging and showing unconditional affection is a definite plus!”
Dr. Singla has a German Shepherd named Shamu. In his spare time, he enjoys yoga and badminton.
