About Our Doctors

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 AZ Pet Vet family, and I look forward to meeting you and your pets soon!
