Who are we?
PVH is a family owned, non-corporate, small animal hospital and clinic on Petaluma Blvd. N. We are an easy drive from Penngrove, Cotati, Petaluma and Rohnert Park, and right across from outlet mall with private parking. You may have seen our friendly sign.
Since 1946 PVH has provided medical, surgical and dental care to pets and clients from Petaluma, Penngrove, Cotati, Rohnert Park and Novato and other areas of Sonoma county.
We are full service, from routine annual exams to diagnosis and treatment of sick pets, surgery, dentistry, vaccinations, Flea/Tick treatment and Heartworm testing.
To ensure that your pets get the state-of-the-art care that is required from an AAHA accredited hospital, we have been AAHA Accredited for 33+ years.
To create a calm environment for your pets, our staff is trained in low-stress handling techniques.
To keep you informed, we explain why certain diagnostic tests are recommended and their cost. Then, we discuss test results and treatment options with you- so we can make decisions together.
"We never push any tests or treatments that aren't needed"
Here is a client testimonial about this: "Dr. Smith is incredibly knowledgeable and recommends only things that are necessary. She is communicative and calls you directly with updates and results on your pet. Excellent staff and service overall." - Jamie N.
How are we different?
We are AAHA Accredited
You want state-of-the-art care for your pet, and we provide it by being AAHA Accredited (33+ years).
To achieve this we must meet the AAHA's rigorous standards. Every 3 years we voluntarily undergo comprehensive onsite evaluations on 900 standards of veterinary excellence. Accreditation puts us in a very small group (15%) of top US animal hospitals and means your pet will receive state-of-the-art care from a hospital that holds itself to a higher standard.

We know you want to be part of the decision-making process, so client teamwork is key for us. If we recommend diagnostic tests we explain what they are, what they cost and why they are needed. Then we review test results and treatment options with you, so we can make decisions together. We never push anything that you don't need and we always discuss things with you first.
Your pet may be fearful and stressed when visiting the veterinarian. Our low-stress gentle handling techniques help to reduce fear and to create a calm environment for you and your pet..
