Meet Dr. Mark Lang, DVM
Mark graduated from the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in 1983. His primary focus has been in small animal practice and he brings his expertise developed from a decade of working as an emergency veterinarian at Canada West Veterinary Specialists. He is a licensed veterinarian registered with the College of Veterinarians of BC. He is also a member of the International Association of Animal Hospice and Palliative Care.
Mark founded Pacific Comfort Home Veterinary Care because he believes that there is a growing need to offer home-based veterinary care to pets with significant health issues. This would include hospice and later stage palliative style care for pets, sometimes known as “Pawspice”. Mark will work together with you to help your pet live well at home.

He believes that finding the right balance of care to provide both comfort and quality of life is immensely important.

When this decision is made, he will do his best to make saying goodbye to your pet as calm and dignified as possible.
