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!

We highly recommend Lane Animal Hospital, and especially Dr. Margaret Lane! We are new to Chelsea, and recently took our senior kitty in to see Dr. Margaret Lane. From making the appointment, to meeting Dr. Lane, we immediately felt welcome, and at ease. The office staff is highly responsive and friendly. Dr. Lane is very caring, and extremely knowledgable. She also went out of her way to care for, and treat, our senior cat’s health issues, not to mention make us feel very welcome. We highly recommend Lane Animal Hospital and Dr. Lane!!

Lane Animal Hospital has been my vet for almost 15 years. The staff is even better than when I first started bringing my lab here and the vet care has always been exceptional. They always go above and beyond for their patients and owners.

The cost was a little high for the vet fee and x-rays but it was an emergency visit. Nobody else would see our puppy and she was in so much pain. Very nice people.

The only vet i’ll take my animals to. Have been going to Lane for years and they’ve always taken great care of our dogs. Friendly service and even the animals like going there. Their COVID protocols are well thought out and the visits are as easy as they can be.

Actually only saw Dr McRae for PT for my dog, but very impressed with her knowledge, easy to work with, she was well prepared for our appointment, and Lane’s facility appears very nice.

Our dog is extremely terrified of the vet so our trainer recommended Lane Animal Hospital for a successful visit. After two unsuccessful visits where they couldn’t actually perform any of the wellness visit, they recommended continued training and possibly considering a home visit vet care solution until our dog is feeling more comfortable with vet care. I just have to say, the patience and compassion for us from Dr, Fryberg and the rest of the staff was so appreciated, I hope we can have a successful visit in the future. Thank you for understanding the life of fearful dogs…
