Overview of C. Nick Elam, Jr, DVM Professional Career
I graduated from the University of Georgia School of Veterinary Medicine in the Spring of 1974 and opened my practice on July 15, 1974.

I have had a special interest and practiced reproduction in my large animal practice until the early 90’s when I decided to make small animal medicine my focus.

In 1994 I expanded my small animal practice to include reproduction and started freezing and storing canine semen with the help of an associate from Pennsylvania.

In 2002, I joined the European Society of Small Animal Reproduction and attended a 5 year course of study in small animal reproduction which concluded in 2008. I traveled to Europe for one week a year for 5 years to complete this course.

By that time, I was practicing the cutting edge reproduction when I became interested in controlling pain. In an attempt to gain more knowledge on pain management in canines and felines, I enrolled in a Pain Management Course for Small Animals. This was a relatively new subset of veterinarian care and during the studies I learned that controlling pain of an animal would greatly help the healing process. Upon applying the knowledge of the Pain Management Course, I saw the immediate effect on the animal and the owner’s response being able to help their animals. Pain management is helping to improve the quality of life for our animals and that is very rewarding to limit the pain an animal is experiencing. After the passing of Dr. John Sherman of Raleigh, NC, I realized that pain management was a very important element in rehabilitation of any animal’s health.
