Lily Rai, DVM

Dr. Lilajit “Lily” Rai was born in Georgia, but her family moved to New Orleans when she was four years old so she considers herself a New Orleanian.

Dr. Rai knew from an early age that caring for animals was her life’s work. When the veterinary clinic that she brought her own animal to was for sale, Dr. Rai jumped in to action. After losing the clinic in Hurricane Katrina, she never questioned whether to rebuild. She did.

When not tending to the clinic and her patients, Dr. Rai enjoys cooking, staying in shape, and riding her horse- Strawberry and Freshta.
