  • Iva McKenna, Business Administrator
    'I have been working at Country Lane Veterinary Services for many years. I can fall in love with a cat or dog within minutes. What a pleasure it is to get to see all the pets that help make our friends' lives better. I say that because I have had several dogs and cats of my own that have given me so much happiness and so many fond memories. One of my favorite activities is spending time outside, especially in the national parks. It is such a blessing to our country that people had the foresight to leave the land in the parks wild and untouched by man. My other hobbies include birdwatching, taking pictures, reading, memorizing bible verses, spending time with my family, and traveling with the best travel agent anywhere, my husband.'
  • The McKenna
    Family
    The McKenna family started on this farm with Dr. McKenna’s parents George and Margaret having had a small dairy farm where they milked about 35 Holstein cows, with 25-30 young stock. After George’s Dad passed away and his Mom moved into Albion, George and Iva moved into the farmhouse. The fields surrounding Country Lane Veterinary Services are the ones that fostered our future. George and Iva have four daughters; Caton, Kerri, Betsey, and Jenny. Growing up, the girls experienced the pleasures and difficulties of raising Guernsey cattle, goats, chickens, dogs, and cats on the farm. In addition to having parents who had to change plans many times to take care of a client’s pet that needed attention after hours. Although their daughters have moved out and started lives of their own, each of them continues to be involved in agriculture and enjoy having pets of their own. The girls are still involved in the practice, but in a more consulting role.
