Dr. Pam Nichols

Pam Nichols

Dr. Pam Nichols is the owner of Animal Care Daybreak.

Dr. Pam earned her doctorate from Colorado State University and launched Animal Care Center in West Bountiful more than 20 years ago. She has dedicated her life to her clients, patients, and employees and in the process, launched two award-winning businesses while also creating new avenues for pet care, including Utah Pet Hospice and Utah Virtual Vet — the first provider of telemedicine for veterinary patients in Utah.

Animals and their people are her passion. Her personal motto is that “we are here to make good things happen for other people.”

Dr. Pam loves horseback riding (chasing cows), reading, snow and water skiing, trap shooting, and flying airplanes. She is a private pilot with an instrument rating and devotes time each month flying for Angel Flight West. Her daughter Elaine Nichols is the joy of her life.

Dr. Taylor Howard
Associate Veterinarian

Taylor Howard

Taylor Howard, DVM, studied Veterinary Sciences at Utah State University, earning his doctorate from Ross University on the Island of St. Kitts. After practicing medicine in the Pacific Northwest, Dr. Howard returned home to Utah as he loves exploring the beautiful terrain of the high desert. He is an active mountain biker and when he is not taking care of your pets, he can be found climbing, camping, and participating in all things snow. His goals in practice at Animal Care Daybreak are to provide great medical and surgical care; to ensure exceptional communication with our family of pets and their people; and to establish ACD as a cornerstone in this community. His own family consist of 3 dogs, 2 cats, and 1 Courtney (his incredible wife and fellow veterinarian).
