About Us

Dedicated to Superior Veterinary Care, Quality Customer Service & Community


In 1984, Dr. Lee Walker and Dr. Erik Tysklind transitioned their house call practice into the first Paw Patch Veterinary Hospital at 16th Street and Arlington in Indianapolis, Indiana. Founded on superior client service, the hospital grew into three clinics in just four short years. Since, two of the locations were sold to private veterinarians. Our current location at 56th and Lafayette Road remains strong and continues to thrive due to a deeply rooted customer service philosophy established so many years ago.

Throughout the years, our doctor and staff have remained committed and dedicated to delivering superior, quality veterinary care and first-class customer service to you and your pet.

Community Involvement

As devoted citizens to our community, we are proud to actively work with animal rescue groups in the central Indiana area. Such organizations work extremely hard to find new forever homes for hundreds of dogs and cats each year. On average, our veterinary hospital donates over $20,000 in time and services to these groups.
