Dr. Shamli Malik grew up in Long Island, New York. Her passion for animals started at a very young age. She started by volunteering at an animal shelter and then began working as an assistant at an animal hospital in Long Island. She obtained her Bachelor’s in Animal Science from the University of Connecticut. From there she went to Ross University School Of Veterinary Medicine and finished her clinical year of Vet school at Texas A&M. During Veterinary school Dr. Malik had the opportunity to go to South Africa, where she developed a strong passion for conservation medicine.
Her desire for nature and beautiful weather has brought her to sunny San Diego. Dr. Malik has been practicing in small animal hospitals in San Diego for the last three years. She has gained practice in emergency medicine and her particular areas of interest are in dermatology, internal medicine, and preventative medicine. When not working, Dr. Malik enjoys practicing and teaching yoga, reading, working out, spending time with her family and friends, watching sunsets, and traveling. She is also an avid hiker and has hiked the Inca Trail in Peru and recently completed the W-Trek in Patagonia. She has an adorable dog named Juniper, who is a Shorgi- a mix of Corgi and Shih Tzu. Her goal is to provide the best available treatment to pets in the comfort of their own homes. She is excited to serve this community and hopes to bring more peace and joy to people and their pets through her work.
