Our Doctors

Nordhoff Veterinary Hospital has been providing exceptional veterinary medicine to the communities of Chatsworth, Canoga Park, and West Hills for over 30 years. Our doctors and staff were all drawn to the veterinary field thanks to a deep and abiding love of animals. We strive to direct that passion into everything we do here at Nordhoff Veterinary Hospital, starting with the health of your pet.

ProudlyAAHA Accredited

A red logo that says AAHA accredited - the standard of veterinary excellence

The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) is the only organization that accredits veterinary practices in the United States and Canada. In fact, only 15% of veterinary hospitals undergo the rigorous accreditation process, setting themselves apart from other hospitals. Accreditation is voluntary, which means each hospital that chooses the AAHA accreditation path truly believes in the standard of medicine that the organization upholds.

To become an AAHA-accredited veterinary hospital, a practice must meet or exceed hundreds of standards. Standards cover all aspects of veterinary care and business and are constantly evolving to keep up with advancements in veterinary medicine and help hospitals stay at the forefront of the profession.

Nordhoff Veterinary Hospital is exceptionally proud to be one of these hospitals!
