Welcome to Points East West Veterinary Services

BC’s only Specialty Canine Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation Facility

We specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions that cause musculoskeletal pain or weakness. Our goal is to keep your pet both active and comfortable, whether they be high performance athletes or distinguished geriatrics, or anyone in between.

Common conditions that we see include:

  • Subtle or difficult to diagnose lameness
  • Issues affecting older patients, such as arthritis and hind end weakness
  • Conditions affecting the performance of working, competition or otherwise athletic dogs
  • Non-surgical neurologic diseases that affect mobility
  • 2nd opinion diagnosis

In addition to his veterinary degree, Dr. Lane has spent hundreds of hours pursuing post-doctoral education in orthopaedic surgery, veterinary chiropractic, acupuncture, and rehabilitation medicine. He believes in combining the strengths of both western and eastern medicine to approach problems from multiple perspectives to offer multiple treatment options.
