Dr. Malathy Rao MS, VMD

Having started Park View Veterinary Hospital in early 2001, Dr. Rao is very involved with all the pets and people who are part of the ever-growing family here. She received her Masters degree in Nutrition from Rutgers University and worked as a nutritionist / registered dietitian at Hackensack Medical Center before deciding to go for her veterinary degree. Attending the veterinary school at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, she acquired a passion for knowledge and learning and keeping up with new advancements in the field of medicine. Caring and compassionate not only to the animals but also for their owners and the various life situations they may be in, she is easy to talk to and is very patient in answering any questions or doubts about her patients illnesses or behaviors.

Having worked for other practices in NJ prior to starting her own, she believes in giving people options for treatments and in non-judgement of people and pets. She truly believes that people come to the hospital because they want to help their pets to the best of their ability and respects that.
