Lawndale Pet Hospital’s Team

  • Dr.
    Paul Lynch

    Dr. Paul Lynch is a California native and was born in Torrance. " I went to Biola University in La Mirada for undergraduate studies, and then worked as a small animal veterinarian in Los Angeles and Orange County since 1998. I attended veterinary school at Mississippi State University (MSU) College of Veterinary Medicine, where I believe the veterinary education, especially for primary care, was second to none. MSU’s internship program brought me back home to the South Bay for one of the country’s best training programs in surgery, ophthalmology, zoo medicine, and exotics. I am now excited to be serving you and the community. "

  • Dr.
    Susan Sanchez

    Dr. Susan Sanchez is a Southern California native and grew up with an array of pets – birds, fish, and dogs. At the young age of six, her parakeet developed a “bump” under its wing, and was taken to a vet for examination. She was in awe during the entire examination process - she knew she wanted to be a vet from a very young age. As she got older, she volunteered for her local animal hospital helping technicians give medications to in-house patients, taking animals for a walk, and preparing fecal samples to be analyzed under the microscope. After she obtained her undergraduate degree in biology, she started working as a receptionist at an animal hospital in Santa Monica that treated a variety of animals – cats, dogs, birds, small mammals, and reptiles. She pursued her veterinary career by attending RUSVM in the Caribbean, where she spent 2.5 years on the island and finished her clinical training in Knoxville, Tennessee, and obtained her doctorate degree in September 2013. Dr. Susan attends various Continuing Education lectures to stay up to date with current therapies and advances in veterinary medicine. She maintains the work-life balance by spending time with family and friends, running, playing tennis, practicing yoga, and spending with her two dogs, Manchego and Cookie.

  • "We had a great experience yesterday. My Sweetie Bell was having her glands expressed and nails trimmed but the new vet tech (a young man) was just wonderful! He made it an easy stress free process for her. I wish I knew his name so I could request him every time."
    Erin Belle
  • ""As far as I am concerned, while we have pets Dr. Lynch is their vet. He worked so hard to save our pit bull and was really sad that he couldn't, but when we presented our car that somehow broke her leg, Dr. Lynch, once again, did everything he could to not have to put her down. Luna now has only three legs, but she runs like she still has four.""
    Debbi Woodcock
  • ""My dogs loved their vet in Tennessee, but after moving back home to California with them that changed. I used 2 vets prior to this one and the dogs did not like going. At Lawndale Pet Hospital they are great and my dogs are happy going there. Thank you so much to Dr. Lynch and the rest of the staff there""
    Laura Boyd
  • ""Dr Lynch and his staff are so wonderful and kind. Don't let the exterior fool you this pet hospital is always clean and tidy. Dr Lynch diagnosed our Pug with a protein allergy after YEARS of other vets telling me it was grain. We put her on a new food and she is finally doing so much better. This hospital is affordable and you can tell they really care about the animals.""
