Dr. McLane, DVM
VeterinarianMy interest in veterinary medicine started at about age 14 while growing up in a suburb of Chicago. Even at that early age I knew I wanted to live in Montana and be a vet. I finished high school in Illinois then went west for college. While at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah I found the other loves of my life; Caren, my wife, and fly fishing. After graduating from BYU with a degree in Animal Science our little family which now consisted of me, Caren and our son Andrew moved back to Illinois. I attended veterinary school at the University of Illinois in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois and graduated in 2000. While in Illinois, we added another son, Mitchell, to our family. After completion of vet school, I accepted my first job in Billings MT working for Dr. Ed Jorden at Moore Lane Vet Hospital. We loved living in Montana and obviously decided this is where we wanted to stay, so here we are. Montana for me is full of things I love: my family which now consists of Caren and 5 kids (Andrew, Mitchell, Avery, Callum, and Bronwyn) and 2 Brittany Spaniels (Amber and Ella), and all the outdoor activities Montana has to offer. I love to go fishing or bird hunting with my family and friends every chance I get. In fact, if I’m not in the office I’m probably fishing, camping, hunting, gardening or watching one of my kid’s soccer games. Montana offers a great quality of life.
