Dr. Solonynka grew up in Nebraska and Texas but has practiced companion animal, equine and emergency medicine in several Western states and New Zealand.

Paul Lewcock, DVM at Coronado Veterinary Hospital

Paul Lewcock, DVM

He worked in rural Devon, England for 5 years, working with dogs, cats, horses and cattle, before setting up his own clinic in the Peak District, England.

The clinic grew from 2 doctors to 5 over 15 years and during that time Dr Lewcock concentrated on looking after mainly dogs, cats and pocket pets (with the odd bird thrown in for good measure). His main veterinary interests are medicine and soft tissue surgery.

After selling his clinic he decided to pursue his dream of working Stateside, while waiting for his visa he took the opportunity to work in Australia looking after the local wildlife as well as the more familiar pets. He was able to work with a Koala Bear rescue while in Australia.

Dr. Lewcock is very excited about joining the Coronado team and is looking forward to becoming part of the Sierra Vista community.

Outside of work Dr Lewcock is a keen (but slow) triathlete and intends on completing the Arizona Ironman in 2019. He is competing in the Death Valley Marathon that year as well. He holds his UK private pilots license. He loves to fish and camp and can’t wait to explore Southern Arizona, its wonderful scenery and wildlife.
