Meet Our Team


Dr. Ryan Andrews

Dr. Ryan Andrews

Veterinarian

My name is Dr. Ryan Andrews, and I am excited to join the team at Foxbank Veterinary Hospital. I grew up on a cattle farm in north Mississippi, where I developed a strong work ethic and a desire to care for animals. After graduating from high school, I attended Mississippi State University where I completed my Animal Science and Microbiology degrees. I then continued my journey at Mississippi State University for veterinary school.

My special interests include preventative care, surgery, and internal medicine. The old phrase “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” has never been more true. Many illnesses that we encounter in our area are preventable, and client education is key to keeping your pets healthy. I have also spent time furthering my surgical skills and enjoy all types of surgery, ranging from spay/neuter to fracture repair and other orthopedic procedures.

When I am not at the hospital caring for your pets, I enjoy spending time fishing, running, and working on the family farm in Mississippi where we raise cattle. I have always had an interest in history and can’t wait to explore the local history of Charleston.

Mississippi State not only was a great place for vet school, but it is also where I met my wife, Mary Elizabeth. We started out as classmates in school, but it didn’t take long before we began dating. Three years later, we took a vacation to Charleston, where we got engaged. She is a native of South Carolina and excited to bring us back to her home state. Both being veterinarians, we have quite the zoo at home. We have 4 dogs, Raisin (labradoodle), Vivian (dachshund mix), Buzz (miniature dachshund), and Bella (miniature dachshund). We also have 2 cats, Bonnie and Finn. We are all very excited to become part of the Foxbank family and are ready to get to know each of you and your pets!
