Complete intake forms
Pre-register for your appointment—print out and complete required documents and health forms. Bring with you to your appointment.
There are all kinds of new protocols being practiced in veterinary clinics. “Fear Free“ exams, and decreasing stress
to patients while in the hospital is our TOP priority. We do our best to involve pet owners in the exam process to decrease stress.
We have large exam rooms in order to watch your pet move around in a non-confined space.
We welcome owners to make special arrangements for pets who are very fearful, to arrive early for their exam,
so that their pet can relax in the exam room for a few minutes and decompress from the car ride to the facility.

Dear Dr. Stephen Lane, DVM; and all of the staff at the Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology Hospital: I wanted to tell you how much I appreciate what you did for our beloved 5-year-old Dachshund, The Baron Manfred Von Richthofen “Manfred” – as well as for my family. Manfred had surgery today to correct large ruptured discs.

Whenever I visit Rocky Mountain Veterinary Neurology, or more often speak with one of Dr. Lane’s staff, on the phone about Bailey and her seizures I always feel that my concerns for Bailey and her well being are taken seriously. Calls are returned in a reasonable amount of time based on the reason for the call and I am always comfortable with the answers to my questions and concerns.
