Dr. Ryan Llera


I am a 2006 graduate of the University of Illinois. I am originally from Miami, Florida and moved up to Canada because I married a Canadian! After graduation, I did an internship at the Hollywood Animal Hospital (a large 24-hour emergency/general practice) in Hollywood, FL and stayed on as an associate veterinarian for two additional years. These years, plus the following few, have prepared me for a large variety of cases, though my primary interests are in endocrinology (diabetes, thyroid disease, etc.), dentistry, and especially surgery.

I have been in Kingston since 2011 where my wife, Dr. Jennifer Weeks-Llera (also a vet), and I bought our first home in 2012. We share our home with two wonderful dogs, two uniquely different cats, two horses and a rabbit, for a grand total of 27 legs (one of the kitties is a rescue who needed an amputation).

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, learning history, listening to late 80's hair metal, gaming, working in my yard, and taekwondo where I am a 3rd Dan black belt. Outside of the clinic, I have a blog at drryanllera.com and I guest write for the Ontario SPCA. I’ll see you soon, and if you want to keep up with what I am doing, please follow me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter!
