She also has a mischievous Siamese mix cat named "Finnegan" who just loves to chase lizards and keeps the dogs in line. While Dr. Westerweel loves all aspects of veterinary medicine, her personal interests lie in internal medicine, surgery, and nutrition.

Her pets are like her babies and she treats each patient as though they were her own furry family member. She looks forward to meeting you and your pets!

Dr. Fleming spent most of his life in the southwest, growing up in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He received two B.S. degrees, one in Animal Science and another in Biology from New Mexico State University. After that, Dr. Fleming moved on to Fort Collins, earning his DVM from Colorado State University in 1993. After veterinary school was finished, he returned to New Mexico and spent the next sixteen years in small and mixed animal practice around the western and four corners regions of the state.
