VCA Animal Medical Center of Tucson

Leah Patrick, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Kansas State University


Dr Patrick grew up in Tempe, Arizona and attended the University of Arizona for her undergraduate studies. She then moved to Manhattan, Kansas to attend veterinary school at Kansas State University. During veterinary school, she married her husband, Brian and they adopted their first dog, Nova, from a research lab on campus. She graduated in 2009 and traded the "Little Apple" for the "Windy City" as she moved to the Chicago area to complete a small animal rotating internship in medicine and surgery at the VCA Berwin and VCA Aurora Animal Hospitals.
After completing her internship, the Patrick clan moved to Tucson and Dr Leah Patrick joined the team at VCA Animal Medical Center of Tucson.
In her spare time she enjoys doing just about anything outdoors and looks forward to re-discovering beautiful Tucson over the years to come.
