Dr. Tejinder Sodhi DVM, CVC
Dr. Tejinder Sodhi graduated in 1983 from the “College of Veterinary Science” in Punjab, India. He got his ECFVG certification from American Veterinary Medical Association.
After working as associate veterinarian at two different animal hospitals, Dr. Sodhi opened his practice at Animal Hospital of Lynnwood in 1991. In 1996, Dr. Sodhi opened his second location in Bellevue to meet the demand of growing holistic clients in the greater Seattle area as well as on the Eastside. Dr. Sodhi’s client came to him from throughout Washington State and even from the East coast of the United States and Canada.
Over the past years, he has taken time from the clinics and continued to further his education in holistic and alternative animal health by taking several weeks to months of extensive training Veterinary Acupunture from IVAS, Certification in Veterinary Chiropractic from AVCA, and under training in Canine Rehab from North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee.
Dr. Tejinder Sodhi has given a lot to the Veterinary community and has been serving on the Veterinary board of advisors for Seattle King County Veterinary Medical Association (SKCVMA) and Washington State Veterinary Medical Association (WSVMA). He is also twice president of SKCVMA. He was the founding president of the Holistic chapter of Washington State and served as the first president of Holistic Veterinarians in the state of Washington. As a president, he worked to promote the holistic animal care.

Meet Julie Kerlin: Our licensed vet Tech at both the locations.
I have been a Licensed Veterinary Technician with Animal Wellness Center and Animal Hospital of Lynnwood since 2013. I graduated from Pima Medical Institute with an Associate’s Degree in Veterinary Technology. Before pursuing a career with animals, I received a BA in Studio Art with an emphasis in Sculpture at the University of Redlands, CA. I continue to sculpt and create pottery as a hobby. On the weekends, if I am not in the ceramics studio, I am volunteering at the Feral Cat Spay and Neuter Clinic, reading, catching up on a favorite TV program, or spending quality time with friends.
