Get To Know Our Team
Dr. Joe Westerhof
Dr. Westerhof is a veterinarian grew up in Blue Grass, Iowa. He has been practicing for 20 years. He attended Iowa State University College of Veterinary Medicine after receiving a degree in agriculture. After graduating in 2003, he put his agriculture background to good use in southern Wisconsin working nearly exclusively with dairy cattle for 2 years. An opportunity came up in 2005 that allowed him to get closer to home. The next two years were spent in Eldridge, Iowa where he expanded to pets, horses, and animal shelter medicine. Dr. Westerhof joined Animal Care Clinic in 2007, and eventually bought the clinic at the beginning of 2011. He pride himself for his common sense of approach to medicine and surgery that keeps the best interest of the pet and owner in mind. He has 2 pets that are Labradors. In his free time, he likes to spending time with his son, Restoring Cars, Mountain Biking and outdoor activities.

Aside from this path, she also does shelter medicine and in-home euthanasia. She and her husband have a small farm with 4 children and 13 grandchildren, keeping her busy in between trips with Christian Veterinary Mission to Nicaragua and Haiti.

Diane’s current veterinary interests are the history of veterinary medicine, ethics, women’s topics, and the survival of the small-town veterinarian.
