Dr. Matt Bryant
Veterinarian

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.

Dr. Ruffin Hutchison
Veterinarian

A life-long Cleveland County resident, Dr. Hutchison is a 2018 graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, and joined our practice in the Fall of 2019. He has an interest in animal behavior, pain management and rehabilitation in arthritis and orthopedic injuries, ultrasonography, and non-referral internal medicine cases. While Dr. Hutchison loves all creatures great and small, the big fluffy dogs hold a soft spot in his heart. When he isn’t working at the clinic, Dr. Hutchison acts as a consultant for cattle farms in the Southeast and helps to run his family’s cattle farm. (We also think he is a part-time comedian, or at least he believes he is!) He also enjoys spending time with his wife Kate, who is a talented baker and cake chef, his son, Paul and with his two Bernese Mountain Dogs Deacon and Rocky. We are so happy to have Dr. Hutchison here!
