Our Doctor

My name is Dr.Sundar Natarajan, DVM. Ph.D. I felt that in order for me to get to know you and your pet, I believe that you should know a little about my qualifications and me first.


I received my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1988. After a brief period in mixed animal practice, I earned my master’s degree in Veterinary medicine during 1991 and Ph.D., in Veterinary medicine during 1999.  I was performing duties like teaching, research, and as a clinician in the capacity of Assistant Professor in Madras Veterinary College, India for a period of 13 years. I also successfully ran my own small animal practice in Chennai, India for 5 years.


In 2005, I was invited to do research at USDA, Beltsville, MD.  Later, I joined National Institute of Health, Bethesda, MD to continue the research for a period of 6 years. During these days, I contributed in more than 45 research publications. My passion and love towards veterinary medicine encouraged me to join as an associate veterinarian in the Banfield Pet Hospitals, Houston, Texas.


I live with my wonderful wife Deepa and my son Karthik, a Junior at University of Maryland at Bowie, MD for the past few years. Deepa and I love to explore Maryland and watch soccer and football games.


My staff and I look forward to getting to know you and your pet as well!
