Dr. Megan Hirano

Dr. Hirano and friends

We are beyond excited to announce that we are adding another veterinarian to the Town N Country family! Dr. Megan Hirano will be joining our staff on June 30, and we can’t wait for you to meet her. Our practice is growing, and we needed another veterinarian to be able to continue to give you the individual attention and the high quality medical care that we are committed to providing.

A native of Sacramento, California, Dr. Hirano attended veterinary school at UC Davis. After she graduated, she moved to North Carolina and began working at a mixed animal practice in Lumberton. She loves preventative medicine and internal medicine, and especially enjoys working with exotic small animals.

Dr. Hirano’s significant other Wei-Chun is a cognitive neuroscientist at Duke University. The couple has three rescue dogs. Whiskey and Brandi are chow mixes and are one year old and ten months old, respectively. Sophie is a two year old hound/pointer mix. The dogs love hiking – especially at the Eno River – so don’t be surprised if you run into them there, with their mom and dad in tow!

They also recently adopted a two year old paint horse, Steve ‘Captain America’ Rogers, who was found tied to a tree by animal control. He’s a very sweet and gentle gelding who is learning quickly under saddle. Speaking of horses, Dr. Hirano is quite the horsewoman. She has been riding horses and competing in show jumping since she was six years old.

Since this is North Carolina, we have to tell you that Dr. Hirano’s sports loyalties span the continent: she loves the UNC Tar Heels, the Carolina Panthers, the Giants, and the Golden State Warriors.

Dr. Hirano is going to be a fabulous addition to our team. She has excellent medical skills and a friendly and understanding bedside manner. She focuses on treating the whole patient, and not just an illness. She’s got a laid back, positive personality, and we know you and your pets are going to love her!
