Danielle Nixon, DVM

I am the owner and veterinarian of Crescent Animal Hospital. I decided to open CAH in 2016 to be more involved with the community that my family has put roots down in through our church, schools, sports, and my husband’s job. When I opened the doors in 2016, it was just Shaney and myself.

I am a “Double Dawg” graduate from the University of Georgia in 2001 and 2004 where I earned my Animal Heath degree and then my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I met my husband when I was in Veterinary School when he was the Agriculture teacher at Crescent High School. In our community, you might hear some say, “the other Dr. Nixon” as he is now the Deputy Superintendent of our School District. We have two school-aged children that are involved in our local sports, arts, and music groups. We also have two dogs name: Maggie and Hank and two cats named: Pearl and Mae.

We are blessed to live in an area where we have such a wonderful community that supports us and where we can give back to those who are going to allow this community to thrive.


Heather Wood

Licensed Veterinarian Technician

Hey y’all. I’m Heather Wood LVT (licensed veterinary technician). I graduated in May 2018 from the Vet Tech program at Tri-County Technical College. I have a handsome fur baby named “Bear” whom I adopted from Tri-County. I love working with God’s creatures and I love my career path. I love the added bonus of working in my hometown and giving back to the people of our community.


Shaney Young

Veterinary Assistant

I started working for Crescent Animal Hospital in 2016. I grew up on my family’s farm where my husband and I currently live. I have always enjoyed helping take care of the animals on the farm, so when the opportunity came available for me to be a veterinary assistant, I was so excited. Working at Crescent Animal Hospital has taught me so many things and each day is a rewarding experience!

When I am not at work, you can find me hanging out on the lake, riding horses, or of course enjoying the outdoors with my four dogs: Brinks, Remi, Finn, & Juni.
