Dr. Ryan Hann

Dr. Hann attended Clemson University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal and Veterinary Sciences. He remains a dedicated Clemson fan regardless of the scoreboard (Go Tigers!). Dr. Hann continued his education at University of Florida graduating with his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. While studying at UF, he felt no one would trust a veterinarian without a dog of their own, so he decided to adopt an energetic and vocal hound mix named Tilly.

After graduation in 2017, Dr. Hann and Tilly decided to call South Carolina home. Dr. Hann began working at Silver Bluff Animal Hospital under the direction and mentorship of Dr. John Hurd. His now-wife, Austin, moved to Aiken as well. They have since bought their first house together and rescued two more dogs – Logan, an extra stubborn hound mix, and Esso, a 75-pound shepherd mix that believes he is a lap dog. In 2022, they welcomed their first child, an adorable blonde hair, blue-eyed baby girl named Madison.

In his free time, Dr. Hann loves to play golf at Woodside and enjoy all that the CSRA has to offer. Be on the lookout – you might just catch him in his flip flops!
