VCA Boca Greens Animal Hospital

Dr. Nicholas Garrick, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Purdue University
Purdue University


I am originally from Newark, Delaware and moved to South Florida in 2006. I graduated from Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997, and began practicing Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at the Windcrest Animal Hospital in Wilmington, DE.
I currently live with my two Boston Terriers, Spencer and Teddy; my 3 cats: Sebastian, Gordon and Jack; and my parakeet, Sunny.

I became a Veterinarian to help God’s creatures (great and small) – the Ones who have no voice in this world in which we live in; they are our adopted “family” members who look at us with eyes of love and devotion, and ultimately depend on US in their time of need, and to ensure that they live a long and healthy life in this world!!!  And that is why I am here.


Specialty Care

Sometimes sick or injured pets need the care of a veterinary medical specialist. When that happens, VCA specialty hospitals work closely with the general practitioner veterinarians who refer cases to us in order to provide seamless veterinary care to your pet. When your pet is facing any kind of serious illness or injury, our specialty referral hospitals will provide the compassionate and expert care your beloved pet needs.

Our goal is to make sure that when you and your pet are in need that you have access to board certified specialists who are up to date on the very latest developments in their field. In our state of the art hospitals, our specialists also have access to the most sophisticated diagnostic and treatment tools and techniques from ultrasonography and endoscopy to CAT scans and even MRI.

As part of the VCA family, we have over 83 specialty hospitals across the US and Canada which provide referral specialty care, so there may be one near you. Our specialized services include: behavior, cardiology, critical care, dentistry, dermatology, integrative medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, radiology, rehabilitation, reproduction, and surgery.
