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. Suzanne Zweigart
Medical Director

Suzanne Zweigart

Suzanne Zweigart, DVM, (aka Dr. Z) is Animal Care Daybreak’s Medical Director. She grew up in the woods of Kentucky, always wanting to be a veterinarian. However, she took a career detour by first earning a master’s degree in education and worked as a middle school teacher before earning her doctorate in veterinary medicine at The Ohio State University. Dr. Z and German Shepherd, Ziva, volunteer their time performing search and rescue operations in the mountains of Utah and surrounding states. ACD is proud to have such a compassionate, talented veterinarian to serve as our Medical Director. As Dr. Z says, “I love science, I love medicine, I love animals, I love teaching. I get to do all of that at Animal Care Daybreak!”

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).

Dr. Lynette Sakellariou
Associate Veterinarian

Lynette Sakellariou

Dr. Lynette Sakellariou, DVM, attended Colorado State University, where she received both her bachelor’s degree in microbiology and her DVM (Doctor of Veterinary Medicine). In practice for 31 years now, she has cherished the friendships and relationships she has made with both her patients and clients. Dr. Lynette specializes in dentistry but enjoys both the medical and surgical care that veterinary medicine provides. When she is not at work, Dr. Lynette enjoys cooking, entertaining, scrapbooking, crafting, and being a mom to two adult children and two dogs as well as a wife to her very supportive husband. Dr. Lynette considers it a pleasure and honor to now be part of the expanding Animal Care Daybreak family.
