“Nikki” Gazikas is a German shepherd mix who has been coming to Asheville Highway Animal Clinic since June 21, 1996. On that day she received her first set of vaccinations. She is now 12 years old and was diagnosed in 2003 with canine diabetes. She is one of the sweetest canine companions anyone may ever encounter. Nikki has since lost her sight but remains almost as feisty as she was a puppy. Her proud owners are Steve and Sandra Gazikas. We wish Nikki the best as she continues to strive with her multiple medical challenges.
