Lawndale Pet Hospital is growing!
Created: Jul 29, 2017
I am thrilled to announce the addition of our new veterinarian Dr Susan Sanchez! She is a 2013 graduate from Ross University and has been with us full time since March of 2017.
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 Dough.
We are also in the planning stages for creating a bigger and better Lawndale Pet Hospital. We are currently in the permitting stage and will give details as they arrive.
