Dr. Lin
Staff Veterinarian DVM
A pleasure to meet you! I'm Hsin-Hung Lin, a VCA A Plus Animal Hospital associate veterinarian. 

I was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and raised in Lafayette, CA. During childhood, I had many animal companions, from fish to hamsters to dogs, which kindled my desire to pursue veterinary medicine with the innate goal of preserving the human-animal bond. 

I went to Mills College, where I received a BS in General Biology. During my pre-veterinary years, I immersed myself in the shelter, exotic, and wildlife medicine and enjoyed many summers fostering orphaned wildlife. I obtained my DVM from the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine in 2022 before moving to Reno, NV, to join the wonderful VCA A Plus Animal Hospital team. Currently, my professional interests include puppy/kitten wellness visits, pet weight loss plans, soft tissue surgery, and ophthalmology.

Beyond the hospital walls, I enjoy spending quality time with my loved ones. My hobbies include designing and creating hamster bin cages and ultra-light backpacking gear and engaging in the great outdoors through snowshoeing, running, hiking, photography, and videography.
