Dr. Erin Lane: 

Dr. Erin Lane received her DVM from Texas A&M (Gig’ Em Aggies!). With the intention of being a horse doctor, she worked in Oregon and the Central Valley in mixed animal practices. She made the switch to small animal and exotics practice when she settled in Santa Rosa. In 2013, she became the proud owner of Occidental Veterinary Hospital.

Dr. Lane’s professional interests include nutrition, ultrasound and surgery. In 2003, Dr. Lane was selected for the highly competitive Don Low fellowship at UC Davis in clinical nutrition. She has a passion for being an animal’s advocate and strives to provide comprehensive care to all her patients.

A life-long equestrian, Dr. Lane rides and competes in dressage. She shares her home with her supportive family, Figgy the dog (who you may see at OVH) and two kitties. In her spare time she likes to spend time with her family, travel the world and explore Sonoma County.
