Welcome to Petaluma Veterinary HospitalVeterinarians Since 1946
We have been AAHA Accredited since 1986 to ensure that your pet receives the state-of-the-art-care that you should expect from an AAHA Accredited hospital.
Our veterinarians understand that you want to be involved, so we will explain why certain tests are recommended and their cost. Then they willl discuss test results and treatment options with you - so decisions can be made together.
Pets can be fearful when visiting a hospital, so we are trained to use low-stress handling techniques to minimize fear.
When the power goes out, our 25Kw natural gas generator will provide power throughout the hospital, including our surgical and dental suites, so pets are safe everywhere at PVH. A State-Of-The-Art, AAHA Accredited Veterinary Hospital needs a Backup Power Plan!
Please read our reviews and testimonials to see what our clients say about us.
We never push any tests or treatments that aren't needed. We hope you will join our family!
Please call ahead and allow 24 hours notice for refills, including heartworm, flea and tick products. This gives us time to double-check everything with the doctor for accuracy.
Stopping by for refills is not possible during Covid. With higher than usual call and case volumes, we are unable to fill prescriptions while you wait.

A State-Of-The-Art Veterinary Hospital needs a Backup Power Plan!
During power outage our pet patients are safe and comfortable. Just like a state-of-the-art human hospital, Petaluma Veterinary Hospital has a large natural gas backup generator to keep the power on throughout the hospital, including our surgical and dental suites.
When the power goes out, our 25Kw backup generator automatically starts and powers all circuits in our hospital. When grid power is available again, the system automatically puts the hospital back on the grid. Then the generator cools down, shuts down, and waits for the next power outage!
So, if power goes out for any length of time, your pets will be safe and comfortable at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital. This is what you should expect from an AAHA Accredited veterinary hospital.
