VMD, Diplomate, ACVIM (Cardiology)

Julia Shih is leading the team at our Hunt Valley location.

Dr. Shih received her Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology from Tufts University in 2006 and went on to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine in 2010. She then completed a small animal rotating medical and surgical internship at Oradell Animal Hospital. After practicing emergency medicine for one year, she returned to Oradell Animal Hospital to pursue a residency in cardiology, and she achieved Diplomate status with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (Cardiology) in July 2015. She spent two years as a veterinary cardiologist in Philadelphia before moving to Maryland to join CVCA in 2017.

Dr. Shih’s interests include the pathophysiology and medical management of acute and chronic congestive heart failure, management of thromboembolic complications, identification and management of congenital heart disease, management of pulmonary arterial hypertension and identification and management of complex arrhythmias. She strongly believes in the importance of educating her clients so that together, they can devise the best treatment plan for their pet and their family.

Dr. Shih is active within the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and has served on numerous ACVIM committees including the Cardiology Exam Committee, Cardiology Form Committee and is the former chair of the Cardiology Credentials Committee.

Dr. Shih lives in Maryland with her husband, daughter, dachshund mix (“Wiley,” a.k.a “Longbody”) and their not too bright, but super lovable Cavalier King Charles Spaniel (“Ollie”). She is an avid Red Sox fan and makes sure to visit Camden Yards every time the Red Sox are in town.
