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.
