Integrating Veterinary Therapies


Dr. Steven W. Nichols

Steven W. Nichols, DVM, CVA, his wife Katie, their four dogs, four horses and four cats reside in Sheridan, Indiana.

From an early age, animals (especially horses) were important to Dr. Nichols who was raised on a small grain-production farm in East Central Illinois.

Practicing veterinary medicine in the greater-Indianapolis area since 1991, Dr. Nichols has assisted a number of feline, canine and equine patients in re-establishing and maintaining their best health possible, (see Testimonial section for examples).

Dr. Nichols has experienced the healing benefits of Acupuncture and Complementary therapies first-hand. Having the ability to offer acupuncture, and other advanced-healing options, to clients has been extremely rewarding. Dr. Nichols is deeply committed to his patient’s health and his continued education.
