Dr. Raj Joshi hails from Dallas, Texas, but has lived most of his life in Georgia. As a child, he developed a strong interest in animals by stalking the creeks and forests in search of insects, reptiles, and amphibians. Dr. Joshi’s love of animals and science blossomed into a strong interest in veterinary medicine and in 2012, he became a proud graduate of the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine.
After graduation, Dr. Joshi completed a one-year rotating small animal internship in Phoenix, Arizona where he developed an interest in emergency medicine for the past six years. His professional interests include medical emergencies, trauma cases, and rattlesnake envenomation. When time is available, Dr. Joshi likes to give back to the community by treating native wildlife and has worked with animals ranging from orphaned squirrels, possums, eagles, owls, and sea turtles as well as javelinas, coyotes, and bobcats.
Outside of work, Dr. Joshi enjoys spending time with his three dogs. He is very passionate about wildlife conservation, hiking, and traveling to places to observe and photograph endangered wildlife.
