Dr. Nicole Sheehan founded Whole Pet Veterinary Hospital Davidson in 2013 with hopes of enjoying her career again.  After starts and stops, poor veterinary cultures, student loans, and the added challenge of motherhood, she sought to create a veterinary hospital where she could get back to the basics of good quality medicine mixed with integrative therapies, kindness and fun. In creating this for herself, she realized quickly she created this same feeling for others as well.  This goodness was felt by clients, patients, and employees alike, birthing a new mission to create vet hospitals that made clients and pets love their vets and veterinary professionals love their jobs.

Dr. Sheehan leads the teams in all of the Whole Pet offices, overseeing the values and mission of the company, training the veterinarians on holistic medicine, and assisting the staff on healthy communication. She still sees still patients part time in the Davidson office, where she sees mostly second and sixth opinions, orthopedic surgeries, cardiac patients, and her long-term OG patients.

Her two children are her inspiration for all things and she shares her home with 3 dogs, 2 cats and 2 tortoises.  She keeps her sanity with running, yoga, medication and art. She truly loves her career and encourages her team to use their true loves and talents to better their lives and the community.
