Dr. Dhot graduated in 1989 from the College of Veterinary Sciences, PAU, in India. He worked in India as a mixed animal practitioner until he moved to Canada in 2004 with his wife, daughter and son. Both of Dr. Dhot’s children are in school studying to become vets and one day would like to work with their dad in his clinic.
Once in Canada, Dr. Dhot worked in various jobs. After writing his NAVLE, he went to Mississippi State University for his practicum in 2006. He worked as a vet in Surrey until he opened his practice in 2009.
