    Dr. Paul Saini
    Practice Owner

    Dr Paul Saini is graduate from Veterinary School in 1996 .Throughout his childhood, his life was filled with the love of having many pets. At a young age he knew that one day he would be able to return that affection by becoming a veterinarian. This was to his parents dismay as they had hoped he would follow in the family's foot-steps and become a traditional medical doctor/physician like his  other three siblings. His desire to care for animals won and in 1996 he graduated from the Punjab Agricultural University with his Bachelor of Veterinarian Medicine & Animal Husbandry. Paul decided to further his career by coming to Canada. He has been actively involved into the Veterinary Industry for almost 15 years in different work environments. Most recently,he was working in various small animal practices in Niagara Peninsula before he finally decided to join the team of Bridgeview Animal Hospital in 2007. Dr. Saini is very committed to the care of all his patients and is diligent in seeing that they receive the best possible care. His greatest passion is surgery where he has logged many successful hours. He loves to discuss preventative medicine and putting into the practice the most up-to-date services available to companion animal clients and patients.  In his spare time, he loves to read Veterinary magazines, search new information and articles online for latest advancements in Veterinary Profession. Dr. Saini acknowledges the importance of a team effort towards the veterinary care and educated staff that can deliver the services in a compassionate and caring manner. His areas of special interest are small animal medicine and surgery. He is been happily married to his loving wife Veenu since 1999. He has two daughters Arleen and Arsh aged 17 and 15 respectively and one son Siraj ,who is 5 years old  . He enjoys driving, watching TV, playing with his kids and reading.
