Altadena Pet Hospital: Your Team Since 1942
Altadena Pet Hospital’s veterinarians use pain management and relief as a tool to ensure your pet is not traumatized by dental treatments, surgery, or chronic conditions such as arthritis. There are many times in a pet’s life that require effective pain relief.
Chief of Staff Baljeet Sahi, DVM, MS
Dr. Sahi has practiced in Southern California for over eighteen years. Rescuing a Labrador mix puppy in sixth grade, and getting an introduction to a turf club and horses by his uncle, solidified his passion for Veterinary Medicine.
After receiving a degree in Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, he completed his Masters of Science in Veterinary Medicine at Alabama. His professional interests include internal medicine, surgery, dermatology, and the pathophysiology of diseases. Dr. Sahi is an active member of the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association, California Veterinary Medical Association, American Veterinary Medical Association, and American Animal Hospital Association.
His favorite part about being a veterinarian is having the privilege of sharing the human-animal bond between people and their pets. It is an absolute delight for him to be in a profession that helps our furry friends live healthier, better, and longer lives.
Along with Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Sahi has keen interests in world affairs, anthropology, politics, and public policy. He also enjoys golf, flying, reading, gardening, cooking, and playing with his two dogs Zack, and Zara. He loves to write and gives a great degree of homage to the peacemakers of the world.
