Meet Our Veterinarian

The veterinarian Dr. Gueniat with a small fluffy dog

Nicole Gueniat, DVM

Dr. Gueniat was fascinated by all creatures on earth as a little girl. Her room was wall to wall full with pictures from the animal world. She walked other people’s dogs, she spent every free minute after school at the horse barn, and she raised tadpoles to frogs. Her first pets were three hamsters. At age 12 she assisted a pygmy goat when giving birth to three baby pygmies. Her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian became true when she graduated from Veterinary School in Bern, Switzerland, in 1983. She is specially trained in reproductive physiology and internal medicine at Iowa State and Oklahoma State. In her general practice serving as a family veterinarian, Dr. Gueniat is enthusiastic about good preventative health care and has a special interest in dentistry. She enjoys educating pet owners in how preventative pet care can make their pets live long, healthy, happy, pain free lives.

In her spare time, Dr. Gueniat enjoys  singing in the Swiss Singing Society Harmonie ( together with her husband, and outdoor activities like hiking and skiing. Dr. Gueniat and her husband Martin have been active members of the Swiss Signing Society Harmonie for many years which performs traditional Swiss Folk Songs in four languages throughout America and Switzerland. The choir meets weekly for practice rehearsals. Twice a year, the choir gives concerts at its home location at the Swiss Park (, usually one in the spring and one at Christmas.
