Our story is a great one.
Dr. Nicole Sheehan has been practicing in North Carolina since 2004, setting up an integrative practice in the Charlotte area in 2013. In the process of offering holistic medicine to the Lake Norman area, she reignited her passion for veterinary medicine, fueled her desire to develop safer and more effective treatment strategies, and provided a community of caring veterinary individuals who love their jobs and their lives again!
Her love of the beach brought her down to Wilmington more often, where she found a group of holistic-minded clients and Dr. Nicolle Rubendall, a local veterinarian practicing a similar type of medicine right here in Wilmington. Together they have paired up to provide the same quality and consistent care with an integrative touch to the pets in this area. They could not be any happier to provide a place for loving pet people to take the best care of their furry family members as well as an amazing work environment for veterinary professionals to call home.
