Dr. Nayyar grew up in Punjab in Northern India. His earliest childhood memories revolve around his dogs as his father was very fond of pets and they had a Pomeranian named Snowy and later her daughter, Snoopy. He graduated from the College of Veterinary Sciences, Punjab Agricultural University, India in 2005 and practiced mixed animal practice for 6 years in India before moving to Canada in 2012 with his wife. They enjoyed their wonderful, snowy stay in Calgary, Alberta but always yearned for the California weather as it resembles the weather back home in Punjab where they both grew up. Dr. Nayyar decided to move to California to work as a full-time small animal veterinarian. In his free time, he enjoys playing superhero games with his kids, along with reading modern history, traveling, painting, music and film making.
