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 was great! Very knowledgeable and caring. I would bring peewee back anytime.
I felt really comfortable leaving my dog with Nikki for 4 nights! Her vet tech knowledge definitely shined through and she kept me updated about Abby's wellbeing every day. I was a little worried about Abby staying with a cat as she has never been around one before, but Nikki did a great job of making sure both animals were safe around each other. I will definitely be back!

Nikki was great with Zoe (our recently adopted, one-eyed wonder)! She met her a few days before we went out of town to go over her schedule and general information. She sent photos and videos every day to keep us updated, and she even trimmed her nails! Zoe had a great time & is looking forward to her next Vacay.

Nikki took great care of my 9-year old lab mix, Waldo. She kept me up-to-date on how he was doing, and posted adorable pictures so that I would know that he was comfortable and happy. I would definitely call on Nikki again.
