Barbara Li, BVM&S, DACVECC


Dr. Barbara Li grew up in Toronto, Canada and earned her Bachelor of Science double honors degree in Biology and Psychology at McMaster University. She worked in a bat lab for her undergraduate thesis project where she assessed bats (and rats) and their ultrasonic vocalizations under different situations (which was a really unique experience!).

She traveled to Edinburgh, Scotland and earned her veterinary degree at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies in 2013 and moved back to Toronto to work at an emergency practice afterward for two years. During that time, Barbara gained interest in pursuing advanced training and moved to New York City to complete a rotating internship at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in 2017.

Her interest in emergency and critical care only grew, and she’s excited to the Emergency and Critical Care Residency Program at ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital, Los Angeles.

Barbara’s interests outside of work include finding new places to hike, traveling, rock climbing, and exploring new restaurants to try.
