Dr. Nicole Holden, DVM
Hi! My name is Dr. Nicole Holden and I am so excited to be a Veterinarian on the Parkside Animal Hospital Team!
Originally growing up in North Bay, I was always split between my two passions, animals and dance. After 2 years of university in Toronto studying Dance, my life did a 180 and found me studying Veterinary Medicine at Massey University in New Zealand (I guess the animals won!). I spent six years in New Zealand pursuing my dream of becoming a veterinarian (while traveling the world!). When I graduated as a Veterinarian in 2012, I couldn’t wait to move back to my hometown and get started. I share my house with my beloved dog Daxter – a mostly blind Golden Retriever I brought home with me from New Zealand, Larry – my ginger, belly-rub loving cat, and Chupy – the chattering cockatiel.
Being able to provide medical care to animals in my hometown, and being a part of such a compassionate and caring team has always been my career goal. I look forward to meeting you!
