Nikki Meyers

Nikki Myers-
Nikki has been with K-Heart Veterinary Service as a Certified Veterinary Technician since November 2008.

Born and raised in Bozeman, Nikki returned to Montana after graduating with an A.S. in Veterinary Technology from Utah Career College. She graduated with salutatorian honors and passed the Veterinary Technician National Exam in March of 2008. Nikki's main interest at work is dentistry, laboratory procedures and pharmacology.

Outside of the clinic she enjoys spending time with her family. She also enjoys photography, outdoor activities and sports. She has two golden retrievers and two cats that are part of her family and are just as spoiled as the kids! Nikki looks forward to meeting your pets and giving them the compassionate and thorough care they deserve!


Kristi Johnson-
Kristi is originally from Iowa and just relocated to Great Falls from Milwaukee. She came west to get back to the small town living that she loves. She enjoys hiking with her dog Dexter and relaxing at home with her 3 cats. Her other interests include reading, cooking and exploring Montana.


Tess is Doctor Manzer's best friend, and anywhere you find the Doctor, you will find Tess! She is at the clinic daily and loves to greet our clients. She knows where the cookie jar is and has several humans trained to give her a treat anytime they come by!


Monster came to K-Heart in May of 2003 as a lost little kitten that was very hungry. With some tender loving care and some food, Monster grew up to be a handsome, long hair cat. If you see him in the summer, he is usually shaved like a lion but loves his haircut. If you aren't watching, Monster will occasionally try to check out the inside of your vehicle!


Hannah came to K-Heart in December of 2004 as a kitten that had been hit by a car. She had severe head injuries but defied all odds and survived her accident. Hannah spends her days at K-Heart up in the loft (mostly avoiding Mowgli), and even though she has her special "quirks" we still love her!


Mowgli came to K-Heart in December of 2010. With his tail, a toe and one leg that had fallen victim to frostbite, he became the clinic's little tri-pod. Even with just three legs, Mowgli rules the roost, and the other two cats quickly tire of his charades. Mowgli spends most of his day either chasing the other two cats or laying on Doctor Manzer's desk with his "purr-motor" going 9-0.
