Roger E. Nix, D.V.M.
Dr. Nix, originally from Southern Indiana, graduated from Purdue’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1982 and has been practicing in the Indianapolis area ever since. His clinical interests include canine pediatrics and geriatrics, and his passion for animal joint health inspired the creation of a company to manufacture PetPROPEL, an all-natural Hyaluronic Acid-based joint supplement that he and other veterinarians use to treat age-related joint issues in dogs and cats.
In his free time, Dr. Nix enjoys spending time with his wife and sons. Their family also includes one dog and a flock of chickens devoted to creating a steady supply of fresh eggs. He counts flying, sailing, and traveling as his favorite activities interests outside of the hospital. In addition to his reputation as a trusted Carmel Veterinarian, Dr. Nix also owns a practice in Fishers, IN.

He completed an internship in small and exotic animal medicine and surgery at VCAVet Care in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 2005. Since then he has worked in his home town of Indianapolis and Hamilton County as a general practitioner and emergency and critical care doctor.
Dr. Paul’s areas of interest are soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology and exotic animal medicine. He also volunteers as a consultant for the Humane Society for Hamilton County. He resides in Fishers with his wife and their two daughters as well as two cats and a cockatiel.

I have been in veterinary medicine for the past 25 years, 19 years of it working in a busy emergency practice and running the ICU department. I have been married to my best friend for 30 years. We have two children, Ashley, a stay at home mom to our two grandsons, and Nick, who is a professional pilot living in Wisconsin. I have one grand-dog that is a lab mix. We love to be outdoors, hiking, biking, camping, kayaking, fishing and sitting by a fire with our grandsons. Life is good.
