  1. Why should you choose Petaluma Veterinary Hospital? ​​​​​​​
    ​​​​​​​Here are four good reasons why:

Quality Care/AAHA Accredited

Established in 1946, our animal hospital and clinic has provided high quality care to Petaluma and surrounding towns for 70 years. To ensure that your pets get the highest quality care, Our animal Hospital maintains AAHA Accreditation. This puts us among a select group (12%) of US animal hospitals that are recognized as the finest in the industry, consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine.

Compassion/Fear Free Program

Many owners say their pets hate going to see the veterinarian. We understand that usually pets are scared, not mean. The “Fear Free” Certification Program teaches methods and protocols that provide calming environments. This leads to fewer anxiety triggers, less stress for your pet, and a better experience for everyone. Dr. Smith is “Fear Free” Certified, and our staff is learning and implementing many of these "Fear Free" handling methods.

We Treat Clients as Partners

Client communication, to explain things in terms that clients understand, sets us apart from other animal hospitals. During diagnosis, we explain why we may recommend certain tests, and the potential value of these tests. Then we share test results and what they mean. Then we explain treatment options. By communicating at each step along the way we treat our clients as partners, and we make decisions together.

We Have the Best Signs!

Pet Examinations

Our pets are a part of our family, and every responsible owner wants to ensure that their pets are in the very best of health. Your pet may not be able to tell you what is wrong, but our examinations aim to discover the source of any problem, or indeed prevent them before they arise.
