Meet Your Veterinarian
and Veterinary Staff

Our veterinarian, Dr. Gatlin, has been practicing in the Paris, TX area since 2011, and during her time here, she’s developed a strong reputation for compassion, skill, and knowledge. And her veterinary staff are no different! We strive for excellence because pets deserve no less. Learn more about our outstanding team below and schedule an appointment soon to meet us in person!


Dr. Lisa Strate Gatlin

I have been an avid animal lover since I was a young girl. It turns out, the only critters I don't absolutely love are pigs and possums. While I enjoy spending long hours at the clinic, I treasure time spent with my family, sleeping-in any time I have the opportunity, reading a good book, and deep-sea fishing.

My favorite part of the job is soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, as well as internal medicine. Ultrasonography is also very interesting to me and we are looking forward to adding TCI (Transcervical Insemination) to our list of services we offer. Working closely with my dedicated and capable staff to provide your pets with excellent care is also very fulfilling to me.



Practice Manager

I have always loved animals, and like most little girls I wanted to grow up and be a vet. When I got older, I decided I wanted to grow up and become a technician. I am in school finishing my LVT and I hope to specialize in nutrition as well as get my practice manager credentials in the future. My favorite part of my job is repro and nutrition. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and competing with my labs.



Veterinary Technician

I'm currently attending Texas A&M University to receive my Bachelor's in Animal Science with a Pre-Vet concentration. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family, two dogs, and my cat. I enjoy assisting in surgeries and taking photos of our puppy patients.



Veterinary Technician

I am studying Business Administration at Texas A&M University. I grew up with animal my whole life and have been apart of rodeoing since I was born. In my free time I enjoy being with my animals, at a rodeo, or with my family and friends.



Record Checking

Sarah loves her job, and her favorite part is being able to see all the pets who come in! In her spare time, she loves being with her family.


Veterinary Technician

I have worked at GAPVC for a of couple years now. I love animals and I hope to have a responsible dog breeding program in the future. I also want to own my own ranch and horse rescue. I am pursuing my education right now in order to attain my goals.




After trying my hand at many things, I have found a place I absolutely love. As a lover of all animals, working with Dr. Gatlin has proven to be the right fit for me. I look forward to everyday and every paw that comes to see us.


Veterinary Technician

I am from Kansas, but came to Paris to be with my family. I found myself here at GAPVC through a twist of fate where my dog was injured. I loved everything about this place and when I was offered a job how could I refuse? I have a passion for animals and western lifestyle photography, and this job gives me the opportunity to do both.



After owning my own western style boutique I decided that I wanted to have a career with animals. I spend a lot of time with my animals at home so I thought it would be a good fit. I have enjoyed my time at GAPVC and plan to stay around for a long time.


Posh Paws

I have always loved animals and wanted a career where I would be able to interact with them. I took a leap of faith and tried out Posh Paws and it was a great fit.


Posh Paws

I grew up on a small hobby farm and fell in love with animals at a very young age. We had everything from snakes to goats to peacocks to just about everything else in between. It has always been my dream to be in a work setting where I can care for animals daily so I am basking in the opportunity. When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and my dogs.



Recovery Nurse

I am the hardest working employee of GAPVC. My job is to recover the patients and keep everyone entertained. Being a recovery nurse is challenging, especially when you are my size! My favorite part of my job is laying with the surgical patients after their surgery to make sure they are ok.
