Dr. Aman Kanwar completed his Bachelor’s of Science degree at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, Canada. Afterwards, he pursued his life-long dream of becoming a veterinarian at Ross University of Veterinary Medicine.
Why Emergency Medicine:
I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. Being in Emergency Medicine means that no two days are the same, and anything can walk through the door. It keeps you on your toes and enables you to always keep learning. I also love helping pets (and their people) when they need it the most, especially during unplanned stressful situations. It’s rewarding and why I got into the field in the first place.
Get to know me
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be:
Being able to speak to animals – boy wouldn’t that make my job easier?
What are you happiest doing when you’re not working:
Hiking a random trail far off in the mountains with my two dogs with no cell service. Completely disconnected from the world.
What has been the most rewarding part of your career/position?
All of the people I’ve met during the journey have significantly impacted my life. Especially the assistants and nurses who work so tirelessly and still have so much compassion for the animals and their people. They inspire me every day.
The best piece of advice I’ve ever been given is:
Listen more than you speak. I try to use it at work when interacting with pet parents and their animals. We may not understand their language but animals have a lot to say, you just have to know how to listen.
