Our Team

Dr. Matt Bryant

A 2004 graduate of Tuskegee University School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Bryant pursued a companion animal practice in eastern Tennessee for over 10 years where most of his attention was directed towards family pets.  As his young household grew Dr. Bryant and his wife Cassidy desired to move closer to their families, so in the spring of 2015 they started Cleveland Animal Hospital.  Dr. Bryant looks to pay tribute to a well-known facility while modernizing the location to meet the medical needs of the community's pets.  Dr. Bryant's practice interests include preventive medicine, in-depth disease management and non referral surgery.  During his free time, Dr. Bryant enjoys spending time with his wife Cassidy and their two daughters Madelyn and Olivia along their two dogs Lily and J.B.  Dr. Bryant is also an avid motorcyclist so he is always looking for a new road to travel.
