Meet Dr. Sheehan


Dr. Nicole Sheehan, DVM, CVA, CVCH, CVFT, MATP

Veterinarian, Founder

Dr. Nicole Sheehan is a leader in the veterinary community. She built 5 integrative veterinary hospitals from the ground up, teaches holistic medicine throughout the country, and consults with veterinary businesses on branding and best practices. She LOVES this industry but recognizes that this is rare in a world of entitlement, anxiety, and corporate takeover. She is a believer in doing what’s right, making others the hero, and managing energy with self care. She leads her hospitals with love, intention, and accountability. At Whole Pet, we spend equal time growing in medicine and surgery, alternatives, client service, and personal wellness. Dr. Sheehan believes all of these work together to give us and our clients the best possible outcomes and experience. We utilize Fear Free techniques and integrative medicine to deliver the best patient care possible. She understands that it takes a village, and she has built a very strong village! When here, you will experience what an integrative team effort it is to take care of as many people and pets as possible!

Dr. Sheehan sees patients in the Davidson office, which she opened as a solo vet in 2013 and now houses several vets in a 9,000 sq. ft. beautiful facility. Although she still has a loyal client base that has known and followed her for 20 years, she mostly sees the medical mysteries and the patients requiring difficult surgeries or heavy alternatives.

If you are not local to the Charlotte area but would like to consult with Dr. Sheehan regarding your own pet, she is available for phone consultations. Please contact the Davidson office to make an appointment. If you would like advice on whether or not a consult might be helpful to you, email her assistant for assistance.
