Dr. Andrew Eppelsheimer, also known as “Dr. Epp”, is a Charleston native. He was raised on Isle of Palms until the age of 10 when his family made the transition to Mount Pleasant. Dr. Epp and his family have always had a passion for animals. Growing up, his family had everything from dogs and cats to birds. He attended Wando High School where he received a Division I athletic scholarship to attend and play soccer for Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC.
After receiving a bachelor degree in biology from Wofford College Dr. Epp knew veterinary school was in his future. He completed his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Ross University and spent his clinical year at the University of Florida. Dr. Epp started his career practicing emergency medicine in Saint Augustine, FL. It has always been a dream of Dr. Epp’s to return to his native Charleston. He enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine, but has strong interest in soft tissue surgery as well as client education. While in veterinary school he met his wife, Marcela, also a veterinarian. They share
their home with their two dogs, Bouy, a 5 year
old German Shorthaired Pointer, and a 3 year
old rescue dog, Milo. We are very excited to
have him join the Shuler team.
