Dr Sehaj Grewal, also known as the Melrose Vet is expanding his wings and looking to new horizons. After launching his first clinic on Melrose Avenue in January 2021, he has already expanded. Dr Grewal raises the importance of selfless service and care for animals by giving them what they really deserve, nothing but the best care and not only for financial gain.
Since he started his practice, Dr. Grewal’s philosophy has always been focused on giving humane and cost effective treatment for pets. ‘I've always been vocal that people shouldn’t be overcharged for taking care of their health, purchasing medication and this also goes for their pets. I'm always practical about the way I work. One thing that I don't like is doling out treatments for financial gain.’
His clinic on Melrose Avenue has become a haven for well-known personalities who entrust the care of their pets by giving his clients a holistic approach towards veterinary practice that hasn’t been seen before. Known to be more than just your usual neighborhood pet clinic, the Melrose Vet has a variety of treatments that are innovative and well-researched in treating chronic health issues for pets.
ON HIS LATEST EXPANSION AND NEWEST TREATMENTS
Dr. Grewal always sought out to give the best care that he could that works. ‘It’s not just about running tests, left and right. The core of what I do is to give the best care I can that is cost-effective.’ Aside from that, his holistic approach has been utilized to underserved communities on Skid Row. Dr Grewal has partnered with the Underdog Community Project, which serves as a vehicle to give proper care and attention to the homeless and their pets. Speaking about his chosen inclusivity in the project, Dr. Grewal pointed out that this is time to give back. ‘ It’s always about the community, especially now that the pandemic has left the economy in shambles, and people can’t afford a lot of things, let alone veterinary care.’
This especially goes for SAG-AFTRA / WGA members who are on strike right now. Dr Grewal is offering discounts that will help writers, actors, and other creatives to attain care for their pets.
Regarding his latest expansion, Grewal hopes to expand on his original philosophy by giving clients more of the Melrose Vet’s medical innovations on a wider scale. He’s created a physical rehabilitation center for pets by including treatments such as hydrotherapy, laser therapy, and alternative medicinal practices such as chiropractic and other forms of holistic practices.
Treatments such as hydrotherapy are there to help musculoskeletal issues like arthritis, pinched nerves, and combat muscle atrophy by using this resistance exercise in the water. ‘Just like us humans, this exercise is needed to help develop muscle mass, reduce inflammation or pain associated with RBC.’ Laser therapy on the other hand is a treatment that helps in reducing inflammation in chronic health conditions.
