Pet Veterinarians

Roger E. Nix, D.V.M.

Dr. Nix is a veterinarian who hails originally from southern Indiana. He graduated from Purdue’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 and has been practicing in the Indianapolis area ever since. He specializes in dog pediatrics and geriatrics — his passion for animal health even inspired the creation of JointCharge, a product that helps aging pets manage their joint pain and arthritis. 

At home, Dr. Nix enjoys spending time with his wife and sons. He cares for a dog and a flock of chickens that produce a steady supply of fresh eggs for his family. His favorite activities outside of the hospital include flying, sailing, and traveling. Along with his reputation as a trusted cat and dog veterinarian in Fishers, Dr. Nix also owns a veterinary practice in Carmel, IN.

Dr. Kacocha became the medical director of Indy Feral upon returning to Indiana. Indy Feral is an organization that opposes cruel outdoor animal control policies. At home, she enjoys spending time with her husband Jeff, along with their dog Java and four cats.
