I came out of desperation to find answers and a remedy for my dogs allergies and skin sores that he had struggled with on and off for two years! Every other vet I took him to could only offer antibiotics and steroids. Steroids caused him to act crazy and the antibiotics gave him a severe yeast infection. The last vet even had the audacity to tell me if I didn’t give my dog all the chemicals he was pushing (after the quick 15 minute diagnosis), he would die. A friend recommended Dr Sheehan. She was awesome! Diagnosed my dog with a chemical toxicity and prescribed a detox for him. Within two months, he was healed! I drive 45 minutes to get here and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I have found a vet in Doctor Sheehan that I have been searching for since our pets have gotten older. I think my Malamute might be alive today if I had found her two years ago and the other two dogs we had with cancer might still be here. I do not believe that a pet is too old to take care of. I think people are treated that way too much as well. Bubba, our hound dog is 15, 16, or even 17. He has been with us for 12 years and has never been sick until this cancer. I am committed to giving him all the time I can and I expect to be feeding him this time next year. With Dr. Sheehan , I am going to fight this cancer. The dog runs and barks and loves to ride in the car and you would think he was about 10 years old from the way he acts. He can still pull me around.

Dr Sheehan is awesome!!! My pup has been sick off and on for MONTHS. And I finally feel like we have some answers. Thanks for taking such great care of my baby 🙂

We had such a great visit with Dr. Sheehan. I am so excited to be working with her and her staff to get my pups healthier and hopefully problem free by just changing their food. The staff and Dr. Sheehan were amazing and we look forward to our next visit. I feel so much more educated on food now.

helping veterinarians heal more animals

We went to school to heal animals. So why does it feel like we use a lot of medicine but don’t do a lot of healing? Rising costs, client pressure, and corporate takeover by non-veterinarians threaten our industry. Right now, the vast majority of veterinarians are dissatisfied with their careers, and suicide rates are at an all-time high. Nicole the Vet explores these challenges and offers solutions in and out of the exam room to improve job satisfaction and restore the joy in our profession.

YOU deserve the career of your DREAMS!

Together we can heal the animals and our industry.

Can you help me with my pet?

My veterinary license restricts me from making specific recommendations unless your pet is a patient (meaning I have access to their records and understand their health history well.) The videos and articles here are meant to help the majority of people who care about pets.  If you feel you need a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Nicole for your pet, please contact The Veterinary Hospital of Davidson to arrange a consultation or examination.

I need a doctor for myself who thinks like you do! Any resources for me to find someone who can help me with my own health?

Absolutely! In our family, we see a Pediatrician and Doctor of Osteopathy, as well as a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Naturopath.  I often study with Naturopaths and Chiropractors to give me ideas for the animals, so we often think very similarly.  See or to find one near you.
