AADC provides advanced medical care to improve the lives of pets and their families.

We diagnose, treat, and manage complex and multi-faceted disorders of the skin and ears.

Dr. Patrick Nichols gained broad knowledge as a general practice veterinarian in Austin for nine years prior to completing a two-year residency at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists in Houston, where his resident training was accredited by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology. He then completed an additional year internship at Dermatology for Animals in Southern California, working alongside and learning from some of the most highly-regarded Veterinary Dermatologists in the world. Now with over two decades of experience exclusively in the field of allergy and dermatology, he has the special training and expertise needed to get to the bottom of your pet's skin and ear issues. His skills compliment the care provided by your regular veterinarian, and he serves as a valuable resource for all general practitioners in the Central Texas area. 

Dr. Nichols will work hand-in-hand with you to identify the cause of your pet's medical condition and provide treatment to achieve maximum comfort for your pet and peace of mind for you. Your best friend will receive quality care and attention in our comfortable and welcoming environment.

COVID-19 Protocol

To help protect the health of all, we have mindfully and carefully implemented changes to our standard operating procedures per guidelines from the CDC, WHO, American Veterinary Medical Association, and other authorities. We will continue to provide your pet the same excellent medical care as always, only without you accompanying them into the clinic. Upon arrival for your appointment, please call us at 512-477-4824 from your car. A technician wearing a mask will come to your vehicle to escort your pet into the building. You may wait in our parking area, enjoy our front porch rocking chairs, take a walk by the lake, or leave and return within an hour. Access inside the clinic is restricted to AADC team members only. We will consult with you by phone during your pet’s appointment and you will receive Dr. Nichols’ usual detailed multi-page Medical Report. If you or anyone in your household has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or is experiencing symptoms of the disease, please inform us in advance so we may take even further precautions with you and your pet. We have made these changes for the safety of you, your family, and the AADC team. In doing so, we can stay open for business in order to serve you, our beloved pet owners.

With gratitude from Dr. Patrick Nichols, Jennifer Nichols, their family, and the AADC Team
