Dr. Lana Holcomb:

Dr. Holcomb grew up in Tucson, Arizona and from an early age had a bond with any and all types of animals from dogs, cats, birds to snakes, lizards and small furry pocket pets.  She graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology and was soon accepted into veterinary school at Louisiana State University. She graduated from LSU in 2005 and joined the U.S. Army Veterinary Corps and served three years active duty and five years in the reserves.

Dr. Holcomb provided medical care for military working dogs, border patrol dogs, and owned pets of military families. In 2008, she worked at an emergency clinic in Las Vegas and gained valuable experience in all types of emergency veterinary care and surgery. To be closer to her family, she moved back to Arizona and worked as the Medical Director at the Second Chance Center for Animals in Flagstaff three years before moving to Camp Verde in hopes of purchasing a clinic.

In 2013, Dr. Holcomb purchased Montezuma Veterinary Services from Dr. Rod Proper and is thrilled to be able to provide high quality veterinary care to the community of Camp Verde and surroundings. Dr. Holcomb also has a special interest in helping the local animal rescues and shelters and provides discounted veterinary care to homeless animals in need. She spends her home time with her daughter and her furry friends.
