Background and Education:
Veterinary School: Western University of Health Sciences Veterinary School
Natalia Pfaff, DVM, is originally from the Bay Area, California, and is excited to be working in the East Bay! She studied Neuroscience at UCLA for her undergraduate degree, and received her DVM from the Western University of Health Sciences Veterinary School. She completed her small animal rotating internship at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is particularly interested in internal medicine, and also enjoys neurology, radiology, and research. Her main research has focused on measuring adrenocortical activity in sheltered feral cats involved in Trap-Neuter-Release programs in hopes of identifying an evidence-based need for anti-stress interventions. Natalia’s favorite part about being a veterinarian is bonding with her patients and collaborating with an amazing team to help pets feel better.
Outside of practicing medicine, she enjoys hiking, cooking, and playing with her orange tabby, Bear. She also enjoys playing the flute and tuba in her spare time.
