About Nikki

6 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
Hi there everyone! My name is Nikki, and would love to watch over your precious pets.

I've been a veterinary technician for the last 5 years, working mainly in Emergency and Critical Care(2.5 of those years a the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Hospital, 2 years at a Specialty Clinic in Chicago).

Giving any type of oral, ear or injectable medication is second nature to me, and I'm a great alternative to hospitals especially if your pet needs a little more attention, but you don't want to stress them out by staying at the vet.

I only have a cat, so all attention goes to your dog, my apartment boasts lake style living, completely fenced, with a mile sidewalk track around a lake with fountains, gazebos, and plenty of ducks to watch

*** Please note that I live on a 3rd floor apartment with stair only access. Any dog over 35lbs with have to be able to walk by themselves comfortably up and down..

My work schedule makes it so I can always come home mid day for work. I'd love to have a reason to go to the dog park, and love being outside.

Living in Preston Hollow allows for plenty of tracks outside, and a super dog friendly environment. Veterinary friends are always a phone call away so rest at ease and let me make your vacations or last minute plans a little easier!

Nikki stepped in when my regular pet sitter came down with an appendicitis, and was able to give my Cat insulin shots having never met him! I was sobbing when I found out and seriously trying to come back from my trip and Nikki stepped in and saved the day!
