Henry Meyer, DVM
E. Henry Meyer, Jr., DVM is a 1967 graduate of the Texas A & M Veterinary College. After practicing in clinics in Maryland and North Texas, Dr. Meyer eventually settled into South Austin in 1974 and has been in continuous private practice as Riverside Veterinary Clinic since that time.

His general dog and cat practice evolved during an exciting time in the 1970s and 1980s as specific areas of feline and canine medicine and surgery developed at the university level. Continuing education courses became easily accessible for all practicing veterinarians. That combined with the advent of low risk anesthetics and in house diagnostic capabilities, allowed him to maintain an enthusiasm to this day for pursuing his preferred calling in dog and cat medicine.

Kelly Oberschelp, DVM
Dr. Kelly Oberschelp received her Bachelor’s in Biology at the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. She went on to Texas A&M to receive her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree then spent 5 years practicing at a small animal practice in Dallas, TX. She was excited to return home to Austin in 2019 to set up roots. Her professional interests include surgery, dentistry, ultrasound, cardiology, and preventative medicine. Dr. Oberschelp has a goofy rescue pug and kitty who are best buddies. Outside of work, she loves traveling, hiking, and trying new restaurants!
