Board-certified with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine in the specialty of Oncology and also with the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners in Canine and Feline Species, Dr. Dhaliwal co-founded Silicon Valley Veterinary Specialists with Dr. Michael P. Moore in 2013, where he continues to practice in addition to his work at Nor Cal.

Dr. Dhaliwal has authored or co-authored 20 refereed publications in peer reviewed scientific journals, 8 research abstracts, and several book chapters. He is also an active member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

In his free time, Ravi enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing, but also has a special interest in theatre, drama, and music – including ballroom dancing.
