Dustin Zimmer, DVM, Medical Director

DVM, Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine


My name is Dr. Dustin Zimmer, I am the medical director at VCA Northwest Hills Animal Hospital. I am originally from St. Helena, California in the heart of beautiful Napa Valley. I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from the California Polytechnic State University. I graduated from Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine, and went on to complete a Food Animal Reproduction, Medicine, and Surgery Internship at the University of Illinois, College of Veterinary Medicine.  I am licensed in 2 states and internationally. My family moved here to Austin in 2010, and we love it here! My wife Jacquelyn is also a veterinarian in the southwest area of Austin. We have a beautiful daughter named Scarlett and a handsome son named Ashton. We have two birds, Speckles a green cheek conure, and Potter an african grey. We also have two boxers named Josie and Flashlight, and a cat named Mai Tai.  My special interests include small animal medicine and surgery, dentistry, and emergency medicine. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially  taking the kids to the Austin Zoo, photography, cooking, and wine tasting. I am very excited to welcome you to VCA Northwest Hills Animal Hospital, and to take care of all your pet's needs.
