VCA Tri City Animal Hospital and Acacia Cat Hospital

Nanette Westhof, DVM, Associate Veterinarian

DVM, Washington State University


Dr. Westhof is a true Arizona native who grew up in Tucson, Arizona and obtained her Bachelors degree from the University of Arizona. She then attended veterinary school at Washington State University where she was able to fully experience winter for the first time. Now living back in the Valley of the Sun, she has been an associate veterinarian at VCA Tri-City Animal Hospital since 1999 where she enjoys the great variety of patients she meets as part of this small animal practice.

When not at work, Dr. Westhof tries to keep control over her home, which is usually quite a challenge with four cats and seven dogs (four dachshunds, one goldendoodle, one yorkie and one little terrier mix) who have their own ideas of how the home should be run. She also enjoys reading, cooking and the occasional river-rafting trip.

Dr Westhof's professional interest are preventive medicine/ wellness, the use of ultrasound in general practice, & feline medicine.
