We seek to build a practice that provides individualized, thoughtful, and quality care to our patients through every stage of their life.
Services We Provide
Lane Animal Hospital is proud to provide a wide range of services for your pets. Learn more about it below.
Pets can have a wide variety of behavioral issues, from simple housetraining problems to severe anxiety and aggression issues. This is where we come in. We are qualified and experienced in diagnosing and addressing behavior problems with an approach that combines skills from veterinary clinical medicine, behavioral medicine, and pet training. As you learn to communicate with your pet, you’ll watch your bond grow over time.
Our caring and compassionate veterinary staff will make sure your pet receives plenty of one-on-one attention, interactive playtime, long walks, and nutritious meals. While our ‘pet resort’ is filled with all the loving comforts of home, we know that pets can sometimes get homesick, just like humans. Does your pet have a favorite toy? A special treat? You are welcome to bring any comforts from home to our animal vet clinic that will help your pet relax while you are gone. We request that you label these toys so we can be sure they return home with your pet when the visit is over.
Please note: Pets must be up to date on all required vaccines, heartworm and fecal testing, as well as parasite prevention. (If parasite preventions are purchased somewhere besides LAH, proof of purchase will be required).

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team, and we’ll be happy to help.
Services we offer:

Hospice Care & Euthanasia
Our team at Lane Animal Hospital is here to work with you to ensure your terminally ill pet stays as comfortable as possible. Enjoy the best quality of life with whatever cherished time is left with your beloved companion.
Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins the moment a pet is diagnosed with a terminal condition, and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies. Pet hospice focuses on caring, not curing. We understand that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient but the family as well. Our goal is to promote a caring community sensitive to the entire family’s needs while also providing excellent care for a comfortable and full end of life.
Your pet’s health includes having healthy functioning internal organs. These organs can become diseased or damaged due to injury or hereditary factors. Veterinary internal medicine is involved with the diagnosis and treatment of your pet’s internal organs. Being inside the animal’s body, damage and other symptoms of diseased or injured internal organs are often not visible. Plus, our pets are unable to alert us when they are suffering pain or other symptoms of internal organ problems. This is why periodic head-to-tail preventive care exams and good nutrition, especially in the case of older pets, are an important part of ensuring a long and healthy life for your pet.
Our laboratory saves valuable time in testing and diagnosing, whether it be for regular wellness visits or emergency care. Our skilled Technicians and Doctors utilize our modern lab resources and equipment to better serve your medical needs for immediate answers.
Microchips are tiny electronic devices about the size of a grain of rice that use radio waves to transmit identification information. Pet microchips store unique identification numbers that show once the chip is scanned. This number can be reported to the appropriate microchip company, where the owners’ contact information is stored. Microchips are made of a material that is compatible with body tissues, so rejection and infection at microchip injection sites are rare.
The practice of high-quality veterinary medicine focuses on the entire patient – from medical issues that affect physical functioning to emotional and psychological issues that affect well-being. Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when treating a pet for any medical condition.
Our approach to pain management involves anticipating potentially painful procedures and taking steps to manage pain from the outset, as well as continuing to manage pain through your pet’s treatment and recovery process.
You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are very tiny (only the size of a pinhead), so they are very difficult to find. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other problems, but some infected pets don’t show any signs at all.
Veterinary examinations and parasite testing are important ways to protect your pet’s health. Let our knowledgeable staff provide you with a comprehensive parasite control program. We can recommend a schedule for parasite testing, discuss what signs of parasites you can look for at home, review ways to control parasites in and around your home, discuss treatment options if your pet has parasites, and recommend ways to control and prevent parasites in the future.
Puppy & Kitten Care
Congratulations on getting your new puppy or kitten. We hope that they provide many years of fun, friendship, loyalty, and love. The veterinarians and staff at Lane Animal Hospital are here to help you as you start on your relationship with your newest family member. The most important gift that we can give you is the knowledge that will make you better able to care for your pet at any stage of its life.
With the advances in digital x-ray technology, we can now manipulate the digital images that we take off a pet’s systems to see what is wrong. This has allowed us to detect things like hairline fractures and orthopedic conditions that were previously not visible. We share these digital images with specialists who consult with us on difficult cases.
Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition, identify the exact cause of a problem or rule out possible problems.
The best way to help protect your pet as they age is to understand the aging process in pets. We understand that process and can help you help your pet. Even if your senior pet is already being treated for a medical condition, treatment recommendations can change as a condition progresses. Sometimes medication dosages need to be adjusted, or medication may need to be changed. Routine wellness blood work and other routine diagnostic testing are important for senior pets. These tests allow us to evaluate how your pet’s health is either responding to current management strategies or changing with age.
Surgery & Anesthesia
Our veterinary team takes every precaution so that your pet receives the highest-quality care. We perform a physical exam and pre-anesthetic testing before surgery, monitor your pet during surgery, and provide appropriate pain medication to keep your pet comfortable during recovery.
Ultrasonography is a type of diagnostic technique that uses ultrasound waves to produce an imaging study. This means that when we perform ultrasonography, we can see internal images of the patient’s body. Unlike some other imaging studies, like x-rays, ultrasonography does not use radiation. Instead, ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound (ultrasound) waves to create a picture of what is inside your pet’s body. Ultrasonography is a completely non-invasive, painless way to diagnose and evaluate many common diseases.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. Starting your pet on the right schedule early is one of the keys to a long and healthy life. Vaccines are special proteins that prime the immune system to fight off specific infections. They work in two ways: to reduce the severity of such diseases should they strike or completely prevent infection.
At Lane Animal Hospital, we believe annual wellness care is imperative to keeping your pet happy and healthy! Your pet’s health is important and preventive care is necessary. We recommend wellness exams, keeping your pets on a vaccination schedule, and working with us on all facets of wellness care.
During your annual physical exam, your veterinarian fully examines your pet and discusses vaccinations and ongoing wellness. Just like you do wellness visits with your doctor, it’s important that your pet does the same. During these visits, our team will spend time examining your pet from nose to tail.
