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. Amanda Seemann

Veterinarian

Dr. Amanda Seemann is a 2015 graduate of Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine and also completed her Bachelor of Science at LSU. Her passion for veterinary medicine began at an early age learning from her father, who was also veterinarian. Professionally, she is interested in internal medicine, surgery, and critical care.

Although she is a Louisiana native, Dr. Seemann grew to love the Houston area when visiting family members who live in the Energy Corridor. She is joined in Texas by her husband, her whippet, and her two cats. In her free time, she enjoys staying active through long-distance running, yoga, or biking as well as relaxing with a good novel.

Administration

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.

Animal Care Specialists

Chris Peake

Animal Care Specialist

Chris' mother made sure that he had compassion for animals from an early age. His family always had pets and often went to local animal shelters to volunteer. His time helping at shelters gave him a deep understanding of the impact of mistreating animals, as well as the importance of pet adoption.

The Bingle Vet team treats them like family, because they are.

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.

The reason I wanted this job is because I want to help the lives of many pups.

Edvardo Sandoval

Animal Care Specialist

Ever since I had my own job it felt great being able to provide for myself. Over time it felt like I was stuck in the same routine for years. However, now that I am employed here at Bingle Vet, it feels like I'm making a difference; caring and helping for the owner's pets, it's a positive feeling.

Daniel Figueroa

Animal Care Specialist - Katy

I chose to be an Animal Care Specialist because animals deserve to be cared for by someone who actually cares for them. If I were a client I would want to know that the employees love my pet as much as I do. I love animals, dogs in specific because they are the most common pet I get to see, giving me chances to pet a lot of them. I will always be patient and cautious with every pet that comes in, no matter their situation, loving them no different from others.

James Almendarez

I have always loved animals since I was young. The feeling of taking good care of another living being is the most rewarding thing to me.
