Meet our talented doctors and staff!


Drs. Nicole Sheehan and Carrie Uehlein set up The Veterinary Hospital of Davidson in 2013 with the idea to bring integrative veterinary medicine to Lake Norman, but also to bring outstanding service and an enjoyable work environment to the community as well. Since 2013, the growth has been rapid and steady, attracting clients and patients from many miles away, showing the need for this type of care not only in this community but others as well. With the rise of veterinary demand through 2020 and 2021, they expanded their work force and their community into Charlotte and Wilmington, NC. With this expansion came the need for a rebranding for something greater than just Davidson, NC. In 2020, we adopted the name Whole Pet to encompass how we feel about how we care for our patients. For us it is about total wellness – careful vaccination, early detection, full surgery and chemotherapy options as well as several alternatives to provide maximum comfort and results for our patients. Dr. Nicole and Dr. Carrie carefully mentor and support the veterinarians and support staff in all locations to try to provide the best care possible in the most healthy work environment possible. We are beyond proud of the professionals who are here to serve you. We think you will find them to be extremely capable, caring, and committed to your success.

Keri Basher

Surgery Assistant

Keri's Bio
Keri and her husband moved to North Carolina in 2010 from Michigan where she graduated from Michigan State University.
Being in surgery every day, she sees a wide variety of procedures, but orthopedic and dental procedures are her favorite! Nothing brings her joy quite like a good underbite/overbite in a patient.

Keri and her husband have quite the acquired crew of rescued furkids. Their dog Taco had six other homes by one year of age before coming home with them. He was an incredibly fearful pup, but with their help he is learning to let his guard down day by day and to feel what it is to have a happy home. Their cat Gouda came from the Hurricane Dorian crew that Whole Pet fostered and found homes for in 2019 and their cat Keeper was a stray found hiding under a house.

When Keri isn’t keeping things moving in surgery she can be found spending time at the beach, in the mountains, or cooking with her husband, Brett. Who knows, she may even be throwing a bowl on her pottery wheel or settling in with a glass of wine and a good book.

Keri knows no strangers and loves making all of our surgery patients feel at home. She is happy to have found Whole Pet, and we are happy she did!
