Dr. Naren Khianey
Dr. Naren Khianey’s strong passion and appreciation for animals, combined with a love for science and problem solving, shaped his childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian. Very early in life, he secured his dream job of volunteering at animal hospitals and animal shelters cleaning kennels and walking dogs. Through this experience, he was transformed by the profound human-animal bond, the magical connection of meaning and joy that we share with our pets. Witnessing the important role medical care, disease prevention, and pain relief have in the lives of people and their beloved pets resolved him to continue the pursuits of veterinary medicine.
Dr. Khianey volunteered all his life till he graduated from veterinary school. After graduating from veterinary college, he immigrated to the United States in 1976 and settled in Maryland with his brothers, sister, and parents. He has been the proud owner of Prince George’s Animal Hospital since 1984. He enjoys the challenges and rewards of general practice, from puppy and kitten exams to end of life care, as well as preventative, surgical, and medical care in between.
In his free time, he loves spending time with his daughter and playing with his grandchildren, along with taking care of his 3 fur babies who you see around the hospital (Mama, Lola, and Sailor).
