Welcome to Petaluma Veterinary Hospital

Note: What happens to your pet when we have another Petaluma power outage?

Don't worry, our large 25kw natural gas generator keeps the power on throughout the hospital, including our surgical and dental suites. A State-Of-The-Art Veterinary Hospital Needs a Backup Power Plan!

Petaluma Veterinary Hospital is a family owned, full-service small animal hospital and clinic, conveniently located at 2443 Petaluma Blvd. N., right across from the outlet mall- (with private parking). Since 1946 we have provided medical, surgical, and dental care for pets from Petaluma, Penngrove, Cotati, Rohnert Park and other parts of Sonoma County.

​​​​​​​You want the best care possible for your pets, so choosing a veterinarian is a big decision. That’s why we became AAHA Accredited over 30 years ago- to assure that your pets will get state of-the-art care. AAHA Accreditation is not mandatory, and fewer than 15% of US hospitals choose to go through the rigorous evaluation process to earn it and to become dedicated to the highest standards of veterinary care.

​​​​​​​PVH has the advanced equipment and facilities- in-house diagnostic testing, digital X-ray, ultrasound, surgical and dental suites- to provide state-of-the-art care for your pets. Client communication is key for us. If we recommend certain diagnostic tests, we explain why and what they will cost. After diagnosis we discuss treatment options with you- so we can make decisions together.

We never push any tests or treatments that aren't needed. We hope you will become part of our family. See our reviews and testimonials to learn what current clients think of us. Then call for an appointment!!

Note on Prescription Refills

Please call ahead with prescription refills, including heartworm, flea and tick products.
This gives our veterinarians time to double check everything with the doctor for accuracy.

Stopping by for prescriptions is much harder and will potentially cause a delay.

Low-stress Handling Techniques

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

Using our low-stress handling techniques leads to fewer anxiety triggers, less stress, and a better experience for everyone.

Our veterinarians and staff use as many low-stress handling techniques as possible.

Clients as Partners

We know our clients want to be part of the decision making process.

So our veterinarians explain things in terms that you can understand. We think this sets us apart from other veterinary hospitals.

During diagnosis we explain the cost and why we recommend certain tests. Then, we explain what test results mean and we discuss treatment options with you..

Client communication at each step enables us to make decisions together.

A State-Of-The-Art Veterinary Hospital Needs a Backup Power Plan!

Animal hospital veterinarian services at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital

Please rest assured that when Petaluma gets another power outage your pets will be kept safe and comfortable at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital. 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.

Our 25Kw backup generator automatically starts, and powers all circuits in our hospital, when the power goes out. Then, when grid power is available again, the system automatically puts the hospital back on the grid, lets the generator cool down, shuts down the generator, then waits for the next power outage!

The Bottom Line: If your pet is in the building or having surgery, and the power goes out for any length of time, your pet will remain safe and comfortable at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital.
