Get To Know Our Team
Dr. Joe Westerhof
Dr. Joe Westerhof grew up in Blue Grass, Iowa, and attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He has been practicing for over 20 years, and prior to his career in Veterinary medicine, he recieved a degree in agriculture. After graduating from Iowa State University in 2003, he put his agricultural background to good use in southern Wisconsin, where he worked nearly exclusively with dairy cattle for two years. In 2005, an opportunity presented itself that would allow him to get closer to home. He spent the next two years in Eldridge, Iowa, where he expanded his expertise to pets, horses, and animal shelter medicine. Dr. Westerhof joined the Animal Care Clinic team in 2007, and is now the Medical Director. He prides himself on his common-sense approach to medicine and surgery, as well as keeping the best interest of the pet and owner in mind. Dr. Joe enjoys spending time with his son in his free time. He also enjoys restoring cars, mountain biking and other outdoor activities with his two wonderful pet Labradors!
Dr. Diane noll
Dr. Diane Noll spent 36 years in mixed animal private practice, then returned to relief work when she sold her practice in 2018! Alongside her veterinary relief work, she also performs shelter medicine and in-home euthanasia. She and her husband have a small farm with four children and 13 grandchildren that keep her busy in-between Christian Veterinary Mission trips to Nicaragua and Haiti.
Dr. Noll frequently visits Zambia, Africa, where she and her husband lead a ministry to over 500 orphans. This passion project of hers initially began as a feeding program and has now grown into a Christian academy for the orphans in the community. Diane’s current veterinary interests are the history of veterinary medicine, ethics, women’s topics, and the survival of the small-town veterinarian.
