Dr. Nicole DeBruine

Associate Veterinarian

When she was a little girl, Dr. Nicole DeBruine wanted a pet dog more than anything in the world—she assumed that becoming a veterinarian would be the easiest way to make that happen. As she got older, Dr. DeBruine started to realize the true significance of the incredible bonds we share with our animal companions. She knew that she wanted to help support and strengthen those connections in whatever way possible!

Dr. DeBruine is from Hudsonville, Michigan and attended Michigan State University for her undergraduate studies before enrolling in the University’s College of Veterinary Medicine to earn her Doctorate. She graduated as a licensed veterinarian in 2015, then returned to western Michigan to start her career in private practice.

Dr. DeBruine joined the Pet Vet Family Pet Care Center in the summer of 2016 on the recommendation of a friend, and she’s been helping the area’s pets and animal parents here ever since. She has a particular fondness for dermatology work, which she fell in love with during her clinical rotations in veterinary school, and she also likes working alongside the team’s other talented veterinarians and staff every day. Dr. DeBruine never tires of learning something new!

When she isn’t tending to pets’ needs here at the hospital, Dr. DeBruine can be found visiting with family and friends, camping, reading, and enjoying the company of her rambunctious Shih Tzu, Sachi.
