About Our Guest Speaker
Dr. Valli Parthasarathy, PhD, DVM, ACVB Resident
Dr. Valli has a long history of learning about and applying behavioral methods and training to different species, including dogs, cats, horses, and even South American Pacas.
She earned her PhD at the University of Georgia in 2002. Her studies included becoming proficient in differentiating normal versus abnormal behavior in many species, including dogs, cats, pet birds, and horses. After her earning her PhD, she decided that she could help the most animals by studying veterinary medicine. She graduated from the Univ. of GA College of Veterinary Medicine in 2006, and moved to Portland. She was in general practice until 2009, at which point she decided to develop Synergy Behavior Solutions with Scott Raymond, CPDT-KA.
In addition to consulting with pet owners, Dr. Valli presents to other veterinarians at local veterinary hospitals as well as at local, regional and national veterinary meetings, to veterinary students, and to the general public.
In 2015, Dr. Valli started pursuing additional training to earn specialty status as a board-certified veterinary behavior specialist. She is studying under the mentorship of Dr. Kenneth Martin, DVM, DACVB
