Meet the friendly staff at Pyne Hills Veterinary Hospital!
Dr. Tashfeen Abbasi graduated in 1996 from the College of Veterinary Sciences in Lahore, Pakistan. He owned a small animal clinic in a very wealthy and lavish area of the city for 10 years, where he obtained lots of experience in animal breeding, training, grooming, and surgical procedures. After moving to Canada in 2004, Dr. Abbasi recertified his credentials with the CVO after passing state board examination and was licensed to practice in Canada in 2006. He started working in a busy 24hr facility in Windsor, Ontario called Luazon Veterinary Clinic.
In 2009, Dr. Abbasi partnered with Dr. Naeem Bajwa at Pyne Hills Veterinary Hospital and became the chief veterinarian. Since then, he has been managing Pyne Hills Veterinary Hospital, and his main area of interest is internal medicine, surgeries, and animal breeding. He lives in Tottenham, which makes him available for his clients whenever necessary. As a partner, Dr. Abbasi is thrilled to be part of such a wonderful team at the Pyne Hills Veterinary Hospital.
Dr. Bajwa graduated in 1987 from the University of Agriculture in Pakistan, and completed his Masters degree in 1989. His desire to join and practice as a veterinary professional could not be fulfilled completely in his country of origin due to the economical condition and lack of affordable veterinary medicine. Dr. Bajwa immigrated to Canada in 1993 and had his credentials certified through the CVMA from the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph. He worked in various veterinary hospitals in Toronto, including the Toronto Humane Society and in Maryland,Virginia in the USA. In 2006, Dr. Bajwa took over Pyne Hills Veterinary Hospital from Dr Cynthia Post. He loves practicing in the area and is very happy with the clients he has been able to work with.
Dr. Bajwa's philosophy of veterinary practice is to promote and strengthen the bond between pets and humans through education about preventative care, nutrition, safety and husbandry of animals.
