Meet the friendly staff at Miami Home Vet!
Dr Hector Roman is native to Puerto Rico. Was raised in Lares, an agricultural town. His family grows coffee, oranges, and plantains. Many farm animals were kept as pets. (except for one pig we traditionally roast in Christmas, and a ocasional chicken). At Tuskegee University in Alabama he studied biology and farm animal husbandry. Then moved to Ohio to study veterinary medicine. As a student had special interest in emergency medicine and nutrition. Graduated from The Ohio State University and has been in veterinary practice over 25 years. Worked in various federal programs under APHIS-VS and USDA-VS. Owned a veterinary hospital in San Juan for 16 years. Directed a veterinary emergency group for 6 years. Is a former board member of the Puerto Rico Veterinary Association. In 2005 moved to Florida to continue emergency and critical care practice. Here worked in a shelter and adoption center. In 2008 started Miami Home Vet to serve the growing demand for home veterinary care. Is active in various local, state, and national professional associations. Is a board member of the Miami Veterinary Foundation. House calls continues to be a favorite part of his work. To provide services at home may be quiet challenging sometimes. But for the most part is awesome to share with our clients and their pets right in their habitat. It also provides information about the pet's environment, this helps during diagnostic and treatment considerations. On his free time he loves sailing, when the wind is dead, kayaking. Camping and off road biking on national parks (no more paddling and no biking per Dr's order since October 2019). At home 3 k9 and 9 felines keep him entertained and provide plenty of company.
