Veterinarians

At Bingle Veterinary Clinic, we have several vets on staff. Our veterinarians are passionate about taking care of animals.

Our veterinarians are members of several associations, including:

  • American Veterinary Medical Association
  • Texas Veterinary Medical Association
  • Harris County Veterinary Medical Association
  • Texas A&M Veterinary Foundation

Dr. Robert Vaughan II

Dr. Robert Vaughan graduated from the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. After working as an associate veterinarian in Richmond, Texas, for six years, he decided to open his own practice. Bingle Veterinary Clinic was closed for several years before Dr. Vaughan reopened it in September 1995.

With 20 years of experience, Dr. Vaughan has established a strong relationship with many pet owners in the surrounding areas, including Spring Valley and the Memorial Villages. Plus, longtime clients, who have moved out of the area, continue to drive the long distance to see him. Dr. Vaughan continues to devote his time and attention to several rescue groups including, Cocker Spaniel Rescue, Miniature Schnauzer Rescue, Houston Sheltie Sanctuary, Border Collie Rescue of Texas, and Houston Beagle and Hound Rescue.

Dr. Andrew Tesh

Dr. Andrew Tesh is no longer at Bingle Vet. An Open Letter to the Clients of Bingle Vet:

It is with both great sadness and reflection that I must announce that I am leaving Bingle Vet after 12 years of dedicated service. My family and I will be moving out-of-state to explore the next chapter of our lives. I will always treasure my time in Houston, and I will always love my Bingle Vet family. Dr. Vaughan and Caroline established Bingle Vet as a pillar of the community, and I was blessed to begin my career at a practice that had (and still has) so much potential. As Bingle Vet’s very first full-time associate, I have had the profound opportunity to see my patients grow – some from the day they were born to the day we had to say goodbye. I have also witnessed my clients experiencing their own life journey. Throughout it all, I have been deeply impacted by people’s ability to love and support their pets, and I’m simply glad to be a small part of their story. Moving forward, I will treasure the real-world lessons I learned from my clients. Thank you all.

It is with true optimism and excitement that I can also tell you that Bingle Vet will have two new Veterinarians join the team in late June. This expansion of the team will allow Bingle Vet to dedicate more time to patient care while simultaneously having more options to see our clients and patients who need urgent care. Some of you will also notice that our new veterinarians look pretty familiar. 

In summary, I believe that life’s hurdles and changes create the best opportunity for one’s growth. I will never forget my time at Bingle and will carry the last 12 years of experience with me forever as I adapt and grow. Bingle Vet will always be a pillar of the community, and the team is looking forward to continuing to welcome you all as part of our family.

Farewell,

-Andrew Tesh, DVM

Caroline Vaughan

Hospital Administrator

Caroline Vaughan graduated from Louisiana State University and earned a Master of Science degree in Marketing in 1995. After six years of being a Project Director for a local marketing research firm, she decided to join her husband at Bingle Vet. Over the last 19 years, Caroline’s goal has been to create a first-class veterinary practice with a focus on excellent patient care and exceptional service. She believes that a client’s visit is all about the experience when they walk in our doors to when they leave. Another extraordinary thing that Caroline implemented was our 10-min Guarantee – she does not believe that clients should have to be waiting a long time before their pet is seen by one of our professionals. She wants her clients to become Raving Fans and to always call if there are ever any problems or concerns. She believes that when you become a client at Bingle Vet you become a part of our family. Her latest accomplishment is building a Veterinary Franchise model – her goal is to bring the veterinary practice back to the doctors.

Jazmin Castellon

Animal Care Specialist

As a child, Jazmin always saw herself having a job that dealt with animals. If you asked seven-year-old Jazmin what she wanted to be when she grew up, her answer would be to work at a vet! It didn’t matter what position she’d be working in, all she wanted was to be surrounded by animals. Now that she is working at a vet clinic, she is very happy – not just because she gets to work with all the precious dogs and cats – but because she gets to learn and grow in a place where she feels very lucky and comfortable. She’s never been a part of a team that was so strong and with a great vision for not just the employees, but for the clients as well. She is learning that Bingle Vet is all about being part of a big family, including the clients, which we grow to have a connection with.
