Dr. Lynn Grinstead

Owner, Veterinarian

Growing up with allergies and asthma, Dr. Lynn Grinstead wasn’t supposed to spend a lot of time with animals. However, this didn’t put a damper on her interest and love for them! A few career-choice changes and 11 years of post-high school education later, Dr. Grinstead became what she’d always been meant to be: a veterinarian.

Dr. Grinstead grew up in Pickerington. She first attended the Florida Institute of Technology to study marine biology before entering The Ohio State University’s Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology Doctorate program. During her last year of doctorate studies, she applied to OSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, starting in 1998. That same year, she began working as a Veterinary Assistant here at Winchester Veterinary Clinic.

Medically, Dr. Grinstead enjoys internal medicine cases and using physical exams, blood work, x-rays, and ultrasound to put the pieces of the puzzle together. She also loves surgeries and the instant gratification they can bring. She also appreciates the long-lasting bonds that she forms with her clients and their furry family members.

Dr. Grinstead has been married to her husband George since 1993. They have a daughter, Sydney, and a son named Constantine. As you might imagine, their home is full of animals. They have six dogs (a MastaDane, a pit bull, a beagle, a sheltie mix – Petie, the clinic mascot, a terrier mix, and a chihuahua), five cats, ten chickens, and a green-winged macaw!

In her time away from the clinic, Dr. Grinstead enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching her children’s sporting activities, reading with her children, and caring for her chickens. She’s also recently picked up sewing and is excited to keep learning the craft.
