Dr. Lane Smith, a Midwestern University graduate, started as an extern with Animal Health Services before becoming an associate veterinarian in the summer of 2018. In 2022 he accepted a Medical Director position with our hospital.
Growing up in North Dakota, his parents fostered his love of animals. Animals became his passion, keeping everything from snakes to birds, frogs to rabbits, and everything in between.
Dr. Smith excels at canine and feline practice with an increased interest in soft tissue surgery.
Having received his bachelor’s degree in marine biology, his passion outside of veterinary medicine is with his multiple fresh and saltwater aquariums.
He continues to play his favorite sport, ice hockey, weekly. He enjoys scuba diving, traveling, and anything to do with fish tanks.
He moved to Arizona with his wife in 2014. They share their home with two spoiled Golden Retrievers, Midas, and Peach.
