The Story of Doc Lane's Veterinary Pharmacy
In 1911, Andrew Jackson Lane graduated from Max Morris School of Pharmacy in Georgia and established Lane Drug Store in Franklin, Georgia. His customers fondly nicknamed him “Doc” Lane. Back then there were no brand-name drugs available, so Doc Lane had to compound every human and animal drug he dispensed.
In 1933, Andrew Jackson Lane Jr. graduated from Mercer School of Pharmacy in Georgia and established his pharmacy in Powder Springs, Georgia. Like his father before him, he was also nicknamed “Doc” Lane by his customers as he continued the family tradition of compounding human and animal drugs. By the 1960’s his daughter Anne had developed a love for pharmacy and decided to become a compounding pharmacist just like her father and grandfather.
In 1972, Anne Lane Gresham graduated from Mercer School of Pharmacy and continued the family tradition of compounding animal drugs. After a successful career which has spanned four decades, Anne has now established a veterinary pharmacy located at 211 East New Circle Road in Lexington, Kentucky. The pharmacy is named “Doc Lane’s Veterinary Pharmacy” as a tribute to the Lane family’s 100+ year history of compounding animal drugs.
