Lawndale Pet Hospital’s Team

Paul Lynch, Veterinarian


I am a California native and was born in the 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 the 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.

About my practice

When you and your pets are in my care, you are welcomed into my extended family. My job is to empower and educate you with the knowledge and guidance you need to make healthy life choices for your pets—but we will always move forward together as a team. I promise to be with you every step of the way, and I look forward to helping you improve and maintain your pet’s health.

How I thrive

I live well by keeping balance in my physical and mental spirit. I try to spend the majority of my time with family and friends. I frequently work with kitten adoptions and fostering programs. In addition, I love to play racquetball and spinning at LA Fitness. If time permits, I either go to dog beach and dog parks or try to head up to the mountains hiking with our dogs!

  • 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.
