'America's Sexiest Vet' Soothes Critters and Swoons Hearts

Dr. Evan Antin soothes critters and swoons hearts.

Hubba hubba. People Pet Vet Dr. Evan Antin is an Internet heartthrob. He is easy on the eyes and has a soft spot for animals.

Antin, a Kansas native, graduated from Colorado State University's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biological Sciences in 2013. In 2014, People magazine dubbed him "Sexiest Beast Charmer" in the issue titled "Sexiest Man Alive," followed up with Bored Panda's exclusive "The Hottest Animal Doctor Ever That'll Make You Want To Get Your Pet Checked."

Later, he earned a spotlight in Veterinary Practice News. He works at a large, bustling clinic in Thousand Oaks, California called Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital. ("Conejo" fittingly means "rabbit" in Spanish—one of Antin's many patients.)

But it's not just Antin's, ahem, good looks that won over his fans. It's the passion for his work and that cutesy way he talks to his animal patients. For most people, this sweet talk is reserved for privacy behind doors. But with this muscular, blue-eyed, brown-haired vet, he doesn't shy away from baby talk to critters of all shapes and sizes, even in front of a camera.

See for yourself.

Antin holds his own—quite well—in a female-dominated field, one of few science-driven professions that has a smaller gender gap. He also likes to give back in his free time, pairing his love of travel with tropical wildlife rehabilitation excursions. He even uses his stardom to promote animal welfare, such as the misleading ecotourism surrounding elephant maltreatment in Asia and Africa.

The veterinarian started his own YouTube channel, which maintains an educational focus on practicing veterinary medicine. His social media pages, though, feature lots of adorable and, let's face it, attractive photos of the man and his various patients.

For example:

And before you start soliciting proposals, he's engaged... but as far as we know, still accepting new patients.
