Nicole Bennett


Dr. Nicole Bennett earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Colorado State University. She then completed a comprehensive rotating small animal internship at the Animal Medical Center in NYC. After her internship, she stayed on at the Animal Medical Center for training in small animal ultrasound while performing a clinical study on the effect of diet in diabetic cats, while working as a general small animal practitioner. She obtained IVAS training for animal acupuncture during this time as well. Dr. Bennett then completed her internal medicine residency training and a Master’s Degree at Colorado State University with an interest in endocrinology. Dr. Bennett has been practicing as a small animal internist since 2004 working closely with general practitioners. She has won a human-animal bond award and she is a certified fear free veterinarian. Dr. Bennett has worked at VCA California Veterinary Specialists for the past 17 years where she manages a diverse caseload. She is currently involved in two ongoing gastrointestinal studies in both cats and dogs. She also owns a mobile ultrasound diagnostic service, providing ultrasounds and case management recommendations for local general and emergency veterinary practitioners working with them, in tandem, to provide quality care for their patients.

She has been teaching endoscopy courses to both general practitioners and internal medicine residents for the past 7 years and she truly enjoys connecting with veterinarians in these classes and watching them embrace and hone new skills.  She lives with her husband, her son, one Pyrenees and two cats. In what little free time she has, she loves to run, hike, read and eat.
