Our Team

Dr. Kahlon
DVM

Dr. Kahlon joined our team in May 2016 after earning his DVM from Guru Angad Dev Veterinary & Animal Sciences University (GADVASU) in India and also is certified by American Veterinary Medical Association. His decision to pursue veterinary medicine was inspired by an experience he had when he was a teenager. At that time, he had a pet named Rimpy that died as a result of an unknown sickness and the lack of proper veterinary care. Also at that moment, he decided that he wanted to become a veterinarian so he could prevent others from having the same experience. Dr. Kahlon is the proud pet parent of a chihuahua/miniature pinscher mix named Brownie, and a shih tzu named Snickers. His professional interests include dermatology, soft tissue surgery and emergency care medicine. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, including wife Navpreet, son Eshaan and recently welcomed his daughter Arnaaz to the world.

Dr. Gabi
DVM

Dr Gabrielle Szwajkowska, AKA Dr Gabi, joined our team in September 2021. While she was born in Southern California, she grew up in Europe and returned to California to finish High School. She went on to graduate from Washington State College of Veterinary Medicine and has been in love with the field of veterinary medicine ever since. Dr Gabi’s interest in veterinary medicine stems from her love of the mix of pets, people and detective work. The thing that brings her the most joy at work is seeing pets get better and the loving families they come in with. In her spare time, she enjoys beautiful beaches, craft food, drinks with friends and gorgeous hikes.  She is a mom to one wonderful cat and is particularly fond of our feline patients.

Natalie
Practice Manager

Natalie joined our team in 2023 after almost ten years managing another animal hospital in San Luis Obispo and working at a local animal emergency room.  She lives on the Central Coast with her husband, son, and her menagerie of pets that she keeps adding to.  Natalie has a deep love for animal medicine, as it is the crossroads where caring for animals and their humans meet.  Changing lives through client education and compassion is her mission in life (along with raising a good hearted human who also loves animals).  She feels blessed to work at All Valley with this amazing team.
