Dr. Armando Nieto
Dr. Armando Nieto was raised in Colorado and New Mexico and graduated from veterinary school at Colorado State University in 2008. He worked in mixed and large animal practice in California for 3 years before joining a racetrack-exclusive practice in NM, attending to two winners of the richest race in quarter horse racing—the All- American Futurity.
The excitement of the racetrack eventually took him to the thoroughbred tracks of Kentucky and Florida for another five years. Based at Churchill Downs, Dr. Nieto had the good fortune to work on some of the finest racehorses in the world, including several contenders for the Kentucky Derby and the winner of the 2019 Preakness Stakes.
Dr. Nieto relocated to Kitsap County 2 years ago, bringing with him a strong interest in lameness and medicine for the performance horse. He has been a practicing equine chiropractor for 10 years and is recently trained in acupuncture, bringing a multi-faceted approach to your horse’s soundness and performance issues.
While not working, Dr. Nieto enjoys all the delights the Pacific Northwest has to offer, and he can be found chasing sea-run cutthroats with a fly rod, working on endless wooden boat projects in his garage, or spending time with his beautiful 11-year-old daughter.
