He grew up on a farm in India and attended the Punjab Agricultural University School of Veterinary Medicine, as well as Purdue University in America, and has always been an advocate for animals in need. His thirty years working in our community shows his dedication and commitment to making a difference for our pets.

Dr. Virk, along with our team, believes in a gentle approach to veterinary care and always puts the needs of the animals before profit.
