Dr Evan Antin – America’s sexiest veterinarian

Evan Antin is a 32-year-old veterinarian from California who conquered the Internet with original photos with his patients published on social networks. Young, handsome doctor and his not always cute and fluffy wards look endlessly fascinated by each other.

According to the official site of his clinic, Conejo Valley Dr. Evan Antin hails from Kansas City, Kansas where he grew up spending the majority of his childhood in search of native wildlife including snakes, turtles, and insects. He went on to study evolutionary and ecological biology at the University of Colorado at Boulder and spent multiple semesters abroad in Australia and Tanzania to learn more about their respective ecosystems and fauna.

As a vet people often ask me about euthanasia and comment "how can/do you do it?" "Is it ethical?" "is it hard for you?" Humane euthanasia is one of the most sensitive aspects of being a veterinarian and it's extremely emotional for all parties. There's too much to say about it in the caption of a post so I made a YouTube video (link in my bio) describing why, when and how we euthanize pets. In short I will say I strongly believe in it and it is one of the most valuable tools we have as veterinarians. I apologize for today's post being depressing but it's very important to me and should be touched upon for anyone of you that has a pet. It chokes me up to even say this but this is part of having a pet. Give them the best life you can and accept that you'll likely outlive them. FYI this pic is of my cat and he's totally healthy and fine. I didn't want to share someone else's pet here or an actual euthanasia. Sending pets to heaven is a highly personal and spiritual affair. I hope you can watch this video and take away a new perspective on euthanasia, especially if this might be a new topic for you. @conejovet

In addition to his love for cats and dogs, Dr. Antin’s passions lie in exotic animal medicine and interacting with exotic animals in their native habitats around the world.

Today he is extremely popular. His Instagram page has 1 million followers which makes the most followed veterinarian in the world.

His social network career started when People magazine wrote a post about him.

“People magazine did an article on me in the magazine!!! Picked me for “sexiest beast charmer” in their sexy civilians section. I was in the jungle in Guatemala when this came out, I had to have my mom take a picture and email it to us,” said Evan.

“If you see this copy, go pick it up! Excited and very honored to be mention here in the company of some truly great people!!!!”

Dr. Antin confesses snakes and crocodiles are his special passion. Nevertheless, this does not prevent him from enjoying communication with cats and dogs, since he loves absolutely all animals.

Evan has visited six continents where had an opportunity to work with many needy animals. Traveling around the world, he deals not only with the treatment of animals in distress, but also propagates the conservation of endangered species. The veterinarian-traveler documents all his adventures on his own YouTube-channel.

From time to time the young man earns like a model and once worked as a personal trainer, but the love of animals and the desire to help them do not allow him to give up the veterinary practice.

Attempting to take a pic with an 84 lb (38 kg) #EnglishMastiff that can't sit still is a bit of a joke ? However, this breed brings up a very important topic-What age to neuter!? There are several factors that go into making this decision for a giant breed but in general, I personally try to wait until they're at least 1 year old. The reason is because as the intact (not neutered) dog matures their testosterone, which is produced primarily from the testes ?, is a major player for them to develop a well-muscled body. The thought process here is that having more muscle will better support the joints and reduce osteoarthritis (aka OA) as the dog ages. OA is almost inevitable in giant breed and even most large breed dogs btw; common joints affected include all major weight bearing joints like hips, knees (aka stifles), elbows, ankles (aka hocks), wrists (aka carpi), shoulders, and back (intervertebral) joints. Believe it or not but if the dog is a good candidate I might consider not neutering at all…this of course is assuming they don't have access to intact females, are not dog or people aggressive, don't try to escape the yard (usually in search for females), and overall behave as little gentlemen. But keep in mind that other male dogs (intact OR not) tend to be more aggressive towards intact male dogs because of the testosterone-related pheromones put out by an intact dog. That's all just my opinion and if you have questions regarding your pet then I highly encourage you to consult with your local vet! Overall, neutering is extremely valuable and very important as a small animal vet ??‍⚕️ Best of luck and happy castrating ?? #mastiff #giant #dog #neuter #intact #vet #vetmed #veterinary #noneedforamateifyoucastrate #nocatcallsiftheresnoballs #dontbeafoolandleavethejewels #justmakeacutrightoverthenut #drseusswouldbeproud @conejovet

Sometimes #LessisMore … I ❤️ my reptile patients including this vibrant diamond python ?? Working with exotics is quite different than our domesticated pets and I've learned over the years that the degree of "restraint" necessary for each patient really varies by individual temperament, not just a species' stereotypical behavior (i.e. Anacondas are labeled as aggressive when this is often not the case). – For example some snakes require 2-3+ people for handling related to diagnostics or treatments while others are very cooperative, requiring what I call the "less is more" technique for their handling. A huge part of working with animals and being able to communicate with them is feeling them out to help guide you in gaging what level of handling suits them best. – While discussing this individual snake's personality with his owner and gently handling him during my physical examination I learned that this snake was mellow and excessive restraint would create unnecessary stress and only make all of our lives more difficult. Hence, you see a freely moving python, tongue-flickering to learn it's environment and overall stress-free. – Important to note I only recommend handling snakes and exotics in this way for experienced professionals because it is riskier for obvious reasons-this python could easily turn around and bite me. Also important to note that unfortunately this "less is more" technique is not appropriate for many patients and the higher stress methods of restraint is necessary for me to do my job as their vet. – In the case of these "not so mellow" patients the pro's (my ability to diagnose & treat) outweigh the con's (incidental stress on the patient and vet staff) so it's necessary. I hope this makes sense to any of you that work with animals ?? And have a wonderful weekend! FYI this python was receiving an ivermectin injection (anti-parasitic medication) to treat a minor infestation of mites. @conejovet

The #Tortoise and the #Hare…MEME THIS! While tortoise and rabbits have many differences (mammal vs reptile; fast vs slow; high alert vs relatively "chill"; fuzzy vs scaly+shell), they have something very much in common! And that's their #gastrointestinal tract and they're both #herbivores ! Both tortoises and rabbits are "Hind Gut Fermenters." The hind gut, in reference to their large intestines, is extremely important because billions of bacterial colonies, essential to their daily livelihood, actually ferment all that grass and hay and plant material they ingest (aka consume aka eat). Grass and hay innately have very little nutritional value yet tortoises and rabbits still need the exact same macronutrient building blocks that we as humans (as well as our pet dogs) need for daily metabolic function: Proteins, Carbohydrates, & Fats. It's this valuable fermentation process that converts low-nutritional value plants to digestible proteins/carbs/fats and the bacteria doing the fermenting need "food" everyday to maintain proper health and function. Hence rabbits and tortoises eating CONSTANTLY. FYI for this same reason, many antibiotics that are ok for carnivores and omnivores are in fact fatal for hind-gut fermenters because they can kill off the "good" bacteria in their guts (ie penicillins, cephalosporins, most macrolides). Isn't gastrointestinal physiology just fascinating!? Another FYI, "turtles" ARE NOT hind gut fermenters because they're omnivores or carnivores so "turtle" is NOT synonymous with "tortoise." Last FYI, horses and guinea pigs are also hind-gut fermenters! #nerd #GI #health #digestion #vet #veterinary #tortoiseandthehare #exotics #didwelearnsomethingtoday #dontjudgemynerdlevel #itsbadsometimes #? @conejovet
