So why choose Petaluma Veterinary Hospital? ​​​​​​​
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Here are four good reasons:

Quality Care/AAHA Accredited

For 20 years we have been AAHA Accredited to ensure that your pet gets the highest quality care possible.

This puts us among a select group (15%) of US animal hospitals, recognized as the finest in the industry and consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine.

Compassion/Fear Free Pet Handling

Some pets hate going to the veterinarian and act accordingly. But we understand that most pets are scared, not mean.

The “Fear Free” Certification Program teaches handling methods that provide calming environments. This leads to fewer anxiety triggers, less stress, and a better experience for everyone.

Dr. Smith is “Fear Free” Certified, and our staff implements many of the "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.

Finally 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!

"Petaluma Veterinary Hospital's signs are just purr-fect!"

Pet Examinations

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