Park Avenue Animal Hospital is proud to welcome its new veterinarian, Dr. Gina Hinton –

As the daughter of a veterinarian, Dr. Hinton has been involved in veterinary medicine all her life. She grew up surrounded by animals of all kinds and worked in clinics as a kennel technician, receptionist and veterinary assistant. During her freshman year of college, she decided that being a veterinarian herself was what she wanted to do. She said: “I fought for it. It was my passion. It was a very difficult trip, but it was my dream, so I didn’t give up.

Dr. Hinton has achieved his dream. She earned a BSc, MSc in Microbiology and Cell Sciences, and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of Florida. While earning her master’s degree, she also taught middle school math and science. She has a particular interest in rehabilitation and microbiology and hopes to one day return to academia to help train the next generation of veterinarians.

Dr. Hinton joined her father, Dr. Rick Rubinstein, Dr. John Turgai and Dr. Brie Nelson at Park Avenue Veterinary Hospital in June this year. In her spare time, Dr. Hinton enjoys reading, running and relaxing with her husband and the adopted Greyhounds.
