Low-stress Handling

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

Our low-stress handling techniques lead 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 you want to be part of the decision process.

During diagnosis we explain why certain tests are recommended and their cost.

Then we discuss test results, what they mean, and treatment options with you, so we can make decisions together.

We think this sets us apart from other veterinary hospitals.

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

Animal hospital gas generator at Petaluma Veterinary Hospital

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.
