Dr. Nikki is scheduling equine appointments for weekends. Please call our Virginia clinic to schedule.

Dr. Pfeiffer grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. As a child, her family lived in South Korea for several years. After completing her undergraduate degree at Benedictine University, Nikki pursued her veterinary degree at the University of Illinois in Champaign. Following veterinary school, she completed an equine surgery and medicine internship at a large surgical center in New Jersey. She stayed on several years as an associate equine veterinarian, but knew she would eventually return to the Midwest. In February 2014, she moved to Springfield and joined an equine exclusive practice. After three years, the practice dissolved and Dr. Pfeiffer joined Cass Veterinary Service in May 2, 2015.
