Your best friend only deserves the best.
Pet owners of Los Angeles are known for their enthusiastic need to only provide top-notch services for their dogs, cats and even the occasional potbellied pig. This includes the vital necessity of having the best veterinarian. From the Hollywood Hills to the shores of Malibu, the newest name in town is being widely shared as the go-to man for your beloved animal.
Dr Sehaj Grewal is the compassionate animal whisperer that folks are doing anything but being silent about. His name is loudly being sung praises in a crowd that includes celebrities, CEOs, politicians, and even that quirky screenwriter neighbor you have who has an Oscar and pet pig named Petunia. Everyone simply loves the charismatic doctor who charms animals as easily as their owners.
Known as The Melrose Vet, his centrally located offices in the heart of the city offer a variety of well-needed services including wellness exams, pet dentistry, vaccinations, surgery, spaying and neutering and even pet nutritional counseling. All that he practices he does so professionally and with a deep dedication to making sure the animal is cared for with the utmost respect and admiration.
“I go beyond people’s expectations,” he reflects on why he has overnight become the hottest vet in Los Angeles. “I’ve created a practice from scratch in a year and a half. I’ve gathered 5000 patients. It takes 10 years for the average guy to accomplish this. And I’m not trying to sound arrogant because I’ve worked hard to get here. There have been sleepless and hungry nights while going through a lot of challenges, but I wanted to make it perfect.”
The admiration he feels for his guests galvanizes a special feeling in the hearts of every animal and human pet owner that walks through his doors. No one is ever just another patient. Each form of life that comes to him is rather a divine opportunity for him to rid the world of the negative. You come to him to treat and care for your animal when they are sick, and he makes it a beautifully positive experience with his healing hands and heart.
“It feels rewarding because I’m able to appreciate the human-animal connection. Many people don’t realize that our furry friends serve a bigger purpose than just being companions. People are emotionally invested because an animal’s love is unconditional.”
Even with his hectic schedule, Dr Grewal always makes time for his number one priority – the well-being of animals. Recently, he has been extending his efforts toward philanthropy. Volunteering for the UnderDog Community Project, a nonprofit organization that provides free veterinary services to the beloved pets of unhoused individuals in Los Angeles. It has opened his eyes to even bigger opportunities to simply be the best vet he can be.
“I wanted to do something for the people who have been good to me by trusting me with their pet’s care,” he says about the opportunity to give back.
Going on the vet states, “Doing something and not expecting any return is something that means the most to me — It brings a sense of unity within a community during difficult times and while it took a long time, I have learned to value emotions over tangible resources. I always hope profit-driven veterinarians do more to help everyone, even without any pre-conceived conjectures.”
From humble beginnings to a now in-demand leading professional title, Dr Grewal will sacrifice anything for the sake of the pets that come to him daily. The one thing he will never do, though, is put profits above care. The vet with a heart of gold believes that every animal deserves only the best no matter where they come from in Los Angeles. His shining valour boldly radiates because of this. To meet him is to firmly experience the genuine devotion that your best friend fundamentally deserves.
