Each year at Global Pet Expo, we recognize individuals from the media who have the power to influence millions of people and use this to positively promote the joys and benefits of pet ownership. We are thrilled to share that Dr. Evan Antin has been named the 2019 recipient of Global Pet Expo’s annual Excellence in Journalism and Outstanding Contributions to the Pet Industry Award!
Before we get too deep, open Instagram and scroll through the feed to find out more about the doctor and who knows…you may even want to join the other 1.1 million people following Instagram’s most famous veterinarian!
It may not come as a surprise, but Dr. Antin went viral after being featured in People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue in 2014, and again in 2017. He used his newfound fame as a platform to help save animals, appearing everywhere from NBC’s TODAY to ABC News, The Doctors and more, traveling to countries around the world and making a difference in the lives of animals and humans.
Dr. Antin graduated veterinary school from Colorado State and currently works at the Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital in Southern California. In addition to his love for cats and dogs, Dr. Antin’s passions lie in exotic animal medicine and educating people about animal welfare. On March 21, Dr. Antin will personally accept the award during the Purina Media Reception, a media-exclusive event, at Global Pet Expo. But you never know, you might just catch a glimpse of him on the Show Floor. Join us for Global Pet Expo March 20 – 22, 2019 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando to find out… Until then, congratulations, Dr. Evan Antin!
