COVID-19 Phased Reopening Pop up

Masks are appreciated for anyone coming inside Lane Animal Hospital. Our staff will continue to wear theirs. Space is a challenge in our exam rooms, and in general when caring for pets. Since social distancing is not possible masks continue to be encouraged to be worn by all.

If you are feeling ill with any type of illness, COVID-19 or otherwise, we ask you to please utilize our curbside appointments only or to reschedule when you are feeling better.

Curbside service visits are available for all clients, for any reason as we move forward. Simply let our client service team know that when you call to check in for your appointment (or when you schedule).

These past 2 years of the pandemic have been challenging for everyone, our team and all of you. Please be assured our amazing group of dedicated and compassionate individuals are working hard to make sure your pets are as comfortable and stress free as possible when coming into the hospital with or without you, consistently using Fear Free techniques and patience with each of them!

We are proud of the fact that we have not had to close once or alter our operating hours for the hospital at all over the past 2 years because of the protocols we have put in place. Even when doctors and staffing became limited due to sickness and quarantines, we have been able to remain here for you and your pets consistently with a doctor available. We will continue to weekly reevaluate our current protocols and how the hospital flow is working. We have and will continue to do everything in our ability to keep our staff and clients safe.

We sincerely hope all of you know we are so thrilled to have you back inside with us!

Our History

In 1905, Dr. Charles Chandler Lane, a recent graduate of Grand rapids Veterinary College, started a practice that would become Lane Animal Hospital. In 1943, Dr. C. C. Lane passed away in a car accident when returning home from a Sunday farm call. His widow, Caroline Lane, kept the practice alive after his passing. She dispensed first aid measures, boarded and groomed pets, and recruited another veterinarian to help serve the community. She continued her husband’s legacy while their son, Wilfred Chandler Lane, served overseas during the Second World War. After the war, he would come to follow in his father’s footsteps.
