At Lineberger Veterinary Hospital, caring for pets is our passion.

Here, we treat pets like family. We understand how important your companion is to you — because they’re there for you through the thick and thin of life, with a wagging tail or a happy purr, and unconditional love. Our goal is to be your partner in taking care of your pet’s physical and mental wellbeing, so you can enjoy many happy years together. So, whether your pet needs a checkup with a doctor… a caring team and top-notch medical treatments when they’re ill… or, some advice on the best food for them or how to care for them at home — we’re here for you! Here, we see all dogs and cats! And, we’ll strive to make their visit a comfortable and positive experience. Come in and get to know us, and see why both you and your pet will love coming here!

    Dr. Edward Lineberger

    My name is Edward M. Lineberger, DVM and I am the Owner and Veterinarian at Lineberger Veterinary Hospital. I graduated from North Carolina State University with a B.S. in Animal Science and then obtained my Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1988 also from NCSU. I have worked here since 1988 with Dr. Reed in the old hospital, then I bought the clinic in 1990, and built the new building in 2000. I enjoy being the veterinarian at LVH because I am able to help people and their family members. When I am not at the hospital I enjoy working on the farm and spending time with my wife Sharon, son Cody, and dogs Mia and Lily.

    Dr. Megan Hesson is a graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. A Kentucky native, she moved to central North Carolina to enjoy the convenient access to both the mountains and the beach. She joined the Lineberger Veterinary Hospital family in May 2018. 

    While Dr. Hesson loves all types of medicine, her special interests include surgery, dermatology, and neurology. When she’s not at work, you can find her hanging out with her four rescue pets (two cats and two dogs), traveling, reading, and singing karaoke.

  • They are so great, my dog was put at ease from his 1st visit. The prices are reasonable and they take time to explain what they are doing and what medications they are giving him.
