He's Worked With Dogs
Because who doesn't love a good doggo?
He's Worked With Cats
While Dr. Antin's popularity pales in comparison to some of the internet's most popular cats, any vet worth their weight it probably going to have to treat a cat of some kind at some point in their career.
He's Worked With Babirusas
A little less typical than cats or dogs, the Babirusa is a sort of deer-pig that Dr. Antin believes is one of the "coolest swine species" in the world.
He's Worked With Snakes
Dr. Antin seems to take up any opportunity to go full Britney Spears and have a snake draped over his shoulders.
He's Worked With Bunnies

He's Worked With Rhinos
One of the most common non-household species that pop up on Dr. Antin's feed is the rhino. The rhino population is dwindling, with less that 35,000 left in the world, so Dr. Antin's posts aren't just fun pictures, they're also calls to action to save rhinos from extinction.
He's Worked With Pigs Wearing Goggles
Not all pigs have heart-shaped goggles, but sometimes they do and sometimes those pigs in goggles are the Instagram-famous Hamlet The Piggy. Truly a momentous crossover event.

He's Worked With Binturongs
According to Antin, this animal is also known as the Asian Bear Cat.
