Niki Eld, D.V.M.

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

It is with the greatest of sadness that we deliver to you today the heartbreaking news of the death of our colleague and friend, Doctor Niki Eld. Although we do not yet know the exact cause of death, Dr. Niki has been struggling with her health these past few weeks, and she passed yesterday afternoon.

She will be profoundly missed by everyone whose lives she touched and the thousands of pet’s lives she saved throughout her lifetime. Each of us not only grieves at the passing of a tremendous individual but also for the loss her family suffers.
In honor of Dr. Niki and her deep love for felines, the company will set up a fund that will benefit cats in the Treasure Valley community.

We know that Dr. Niki had a large client following and many of you will want to send your condolences. You can send cards and memories to our Federal Way Clinic at 6801 S. Federal Way, Boise, ID 83716 and we will be sure to get those to her family, just please put "ATTN: Dr. Niki Eld."

Dr. Niki would want us to continue working hard to save and improve the lives of cats and dogs throughout the valley, so we have arranged for Dr. Niki's clients to be covered by Dr. Hadley, along with a few relief veterinarians, until such a time as permanent arrangements can be made.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us by emailing or calling us at (208) 888-0818 EXT 205.
