Although Texas prohibits me from answering questions about specific pets, the 1st Amendment still allows us to communicate. That is something the Texas Veterinary Board and the AVMA will never succeed in silencing. However, as of late, the Google Gmail algorithms have been regarding your emails as spam if you do not mention Ron Hines or Dr. Hines in the body of your email or if you leave the Subject line blank. So, if you emailed me in the past and I never responded, I apologize. Please try again. 3/29/23
I have given advice to dog, cat and exotic pet owners for over forty years. During that time, I learned many things. An important one is that veterinarians like myself do not have a solution for all of your pet’s health problems.
By Texas Law, I am not allowed to be your personal veterinary “consultant” or “practice” veterinary medicine over the distance between us because I cannot physically touch your pet. That is the job of your local veterinarian. But I can be a trusted friend. I can explain and walk you through the information and the treatment options I give in my articles and I can give you emotional support in difficult times and with difficult decisions. If I cannot, I will do my best to find the best person who can help your pet in whatever part of the World you live.
To do that, I charge a one-time fee of $58.00 that helps support this website and the animals I care for at no charge.
Dr. Ron Hines, veterinarian
