Meet our Staff

Dr. Kelly Chapman, DVM

Dr. Chapman opened the doors of River Road Veterinary Hospital in 1985 to serve the region’s equine needs after many years of mobile equine practice.  He then expanded to serve those clients’ companion animals as well, and now stays very busy with dogs of all kinds, cats, horses, and goats.  Dr. Chapman is always excited about the opportunity to  learn something new, and will gladly examine a box turtle or a chicken, and has opened his doors to pet Potbellied Pigs as well.

Dr. Katherine R. Dunn, DVM

I have lived in New Orleans since 1995, when I graduated from Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine in Alabama. I spent my first 18 years of practice at an all-cat veterinary hospital before joining the River Road team in early 2014.  My main interests besides feline medicine are nutrition, geriatrics, and dentistry.  I love the almost-daily new experiences with pets and people that I have at River Road Veterinary Hospital.  My husband of 18 years and I live with our four cats in beautiful Uptown, New Orleans.
