Dr. Christopher Ernst

Upon graduation, he was accepted to a one year internship at Illinois Equine Hospital. During that time, he gained a wealth of information and extensive exposure to lameness, prepurchase examinations, and surgery. After his internship, Dr. Ernst worked with Dr. Fred Benker in Noblesville, IN. During this time, he developed an aptitude for equine reproduction.

Dr. Ernst enjoys all aspects of equine practice, but has developed a strong interest in lameness and regenerative medicine. In addition to belonging to various other organizations at Purdue, Dr. Ernst was the President of the student Chapter of the American Association of Equine Practitioners and continues to maintain his membership with the AAEP. Dr. Ernst is also a past president of the Indiana Association of Equine Practitioners.

In his non-professional time, Dr. Ernst enjoys skiing (snow and water), reading and active fun time with his wife Liz and their son Nathan. The Ernst family shares their home with K9 pal Lindsey and Hank the cat.


Dr. Katie Loewenstine

Dr. Loewenstine grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where she began riding at a young age at her grandparents’ farm. She enjoyed riding and competing in eventing through the years with an Appaloosa, Chester and later a Connemara, Blarney.

Dr. Loewenstine attended Clemson University and graduated with a BS in Animal and Veterinary Science. She then attended Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine and earned her DVM. Dr. Katie went on to complete an internship at Brandon Equine Medical Center in sunny Florida where she engaged in many aspects of equine medicine including preventative care, dentistry, podiatry, ophthalmology, reproduction, colics, lameness, and other emergencies. Dr. Loewenstine’s desire to return to South Carolina brought her to Edisto Equine Clinic. In her free time, Dr. Katie enjoys riding Blarney, and spending time outdoors with friends, family, and her Great Dane.
