Dr. Tena Boyd, DVM
Dr. Boyd was educated at Virginia Tech (1991 Animal Science, 1995 VA-MD Regional College of Veterinary Medicine).  She has been with Old Waterloo since 1996, became a partner in 2000 and purchased the practice in 2014.  Dr. Boyd’s special veterinary interests include equine breeding management and reproductive medicine, neonatal medicine (conception through birth and weaning), as well as preventive health care. She lives in Rixeyville with her husband Terry, their thoroughbred broodmare band, riding horses, and Labrador Retrievers. Dr. Boyd also co-chaired the very successful First Ride for the Cure Virginia 2009 which made more than $125,000 for breast cancer research. To this day OWEC is still hosting the Ride for the Cure and collectively the event has raised over $600,000 to support the fight against breast cancer. 
   
Dr. Alisha Oehling, DVM
Dr. Oehling grew up in Asheville, NC spending every moment she could on a horse.  It was then her love of horses and desire to become a veterinarian was formed.  She spent four years at Averett University in Danville, VA where she earned a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences with a minor in Equestrian Studies.  Here she also actively participated on the combined training team, successfully showing throughout North Carolina and Virginia. Vet school brought her to the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in Blacksburg, VA where she graduated in 2009 with an Equine emphasis.  Dr. Oehling has special interest in diagnosing and treating lameness in the sport horse.

Directly after graduating from vet school, Dr. Oehling opened Stateline Equine in Clarksville, VA.  Stateline Equine offered care for multiple large animal species in southeastern Virginia to include equine, bovine, camelid, and caprine medicine. After approximately 3.5 years of dedicated service to the area Dr. Oehling closed Stateline Equine’s doors in order to pursue an opportunity with Old Waterloo Equine Clinic.  She very much looks forward to servicing this community with the same fervor and eagerness she exuded with Stateline Equine.
