Samuel Lam, Associate Veterinarian

DVM

Dr. Samuel Lam graduated from UC Davis with a B.A. in Psychology, Sociology, and Communications and from San Francisco State with a B.S. in Zoology and minors in Holistic Health and Chemistry. He received his AS in Veterinary Technology from Foothill College, and went on to receive his DVM from Midwestern University. Dr. Lam has been with VCA since August of 2018. 

Dr. Lam's special interests include small animal medicine, soft tissue surgery, holistic/integrative medicine, veterinary acupuncture, herbal medicine, and veterinary chiropractic. He enjoys his job because it allows him to explore the human-animal bond, as well as the important role that pets play in the family. Dr. Lam appreciates the opportunity to be a part of that extended family, and to help preserve the bond by caring for pets when they're sick, as well as seeing them annually for wellness exams and preventative care.

Outside of work, Dr. Lam likes to read, do yoga and martial arts, and hike. He has two dogs: Sophie, a 7 year old female yellow lab/retriever who is a total goofball and loves balls, and Miho, a 5 year old female white Pungsan who is a rebellious punk and likes to people watch. He also has 3 cats: Kevin Jones, ("Kevin") a 10 year old male gray/white DSH who is kind of a serious cat and can't take a joke; Miki Tiki Raffiki Liki ("Miki") who is a 10 year old male orange tabby DSH, a cat nip junkie who can't help feeding his addiction; and Mr. Benjamin Buttons ("Benji"), a 3 year old male black DSH who is the baby of the bunch and totally spoiled. Finally, Dr. Lam has two turtles: Pucca, a 16 year old female Red-Eared Slider who likes to sunbathe and Garu, a 16 year old female Red-Eared Slider who loves to eat.
