Dr. Analys Castillo
I was raised in Southern California, and attended Ross University. I began my work in the Veterinary field as a Veterinary Technologist at a low-cost non-profit
clinic. Today, I am a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and I couldn’t be happier with my career choice!
Preventing health problems is a very important part of healthcare in animals and in people. I take special interest in the areas of preventive medicine, dental health and nutrition – the foundation of keeping pets (and pet parents) healthier and happier at every stage of their lives.
I have two pets to keep me on my toes – a lovable Labrador mix named Pickles, and a Poodle mix named Molly. My hobbies include taking time to enjoy my family and friends, traveling, as well as running and strength training. I’m proud to be a part of the AZPetVet family, and I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!

Dr. Hannah Armstrong
I was born and raised in Muscatine, Iowa. I did my both undergraduate and post-graduate degrees at Iowa State University, graduating in 2017, so I’m a brand new Doctor of Veterinary Medicine!
The areas of vet medicine that interest me the most right now are surgery (orthopedics, to be specific), Internal Medicine and Ophthalmology. Arizona Pet Vet is the perfect place for me, because we have such a culture of learning and mentorship. I plan on soaking up everything I can from the doctors and staff.
I live with my fiancé Brett, and we have an enormous pup named Cujo. He’s actually four, so he’s not quite a puppy these days. Don’t let the name fool you; he’s an adorable mix of Bull Mastiff and Labrador Retriever and full of love and slobbery kisses. My hobbies include hiking, biking and all things outdoors, reading, as well as baking yummy treats for people.

I grew up on the Oregon coast and recently moved to Arizona. I have received two undergraduate degrees; the first was a BS in Biology from Oregon State University with two minors and my second was a BS in Nursing from Oregon Health Sciences University. I worked as a nurse for some time before pursuing my true love of veterinary medicine.

From the time I was a young I felt a special connection with animals of all shapes and sizes. This amazing human-animal bond continues to intrigue and drive me to provide the best care I can for our furry family members. I love geriatric and hospice care and enjoy making our pet’s golden years as comfortable and full of life as possible. I also enjoy wound management and am always amazed at how the body can heal.
I love spending time with my friends and family. I live with my wonderful husband, my beautiful daughter, an energetic three legged terrier mutt, and five adorably affectionate older cats.
