Dr. Alane Kosanovich Cahalane is a co-founder of VSH Hong Kong and a member of its board of directors.

When Alane arrived in 2011 as the first board certified small animal surgeon to live and work in Hong Kong, the need to introduce veterinary specialists to the existing veterinary community was clear.

With the goal of elevating the veterinary profession in Hong Kong and worldwide, Alane lectures internationally, teaching surgical theory and technique to practitioners and discussing the importance of trusting relationships at every level of a veterinary career.  Alane is dedicated to elevating and empowering veterinary professionals to practice the highest level of medicine through education, support, and sharing of expertise.

Alane earned her Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from Tufts University.  She earned her Master’s in Biology from Boston University.  Alane completed a rotating internship and surgical residency at Cornell University Hospital for Animals and is a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Surgeons.
