About Petaluma Veterinary Hospital
Petaluma Veterinary Hospital... Your Other Family Doctor!Our Mission: To provide comprehensive, highest quality veterinary patient care and exceptional client service.Our Motto: To treat every client like family and every pet as if it was our own.1. Petaluma Veterinary Hospital is AAHA AccreditedAccreditation by the American Animal Hospital Association is not mandatory, so only about 15% of US veterinary hospitals are accredited. Accredited hospitals are recognized to be among the finest in the industry, and are consistently at the forefront of advanced veterinary medicine. Every 3 years we undergo comprehensive on-site evaluations on approximately 900 standards of veterinary excellence in quality of care, pain management, surgery, pharmacy, laboratory, exam facilities, medical records, cleanliness, emergency services, dental care, diagnostic imaging, anesthesiology, and continuing education. By selecting an AAHA Accredited hospital, your pet will receive quality care from a hospital that holds itself to a higher standard. 2. Dr. Smith is “Fear Free” Certified (and both senior vet techs will be soon)Are you among the many dog and cat owners who say their pets hate going to the vete...rinarian? The “Fear Free” Certification Program teaches methods and protocols that provide calming environments for patients. This leads to fewer anxiety triggers and an experience that is rewarding and safer for all involved- pets, owners, and our veterinary staff. Petaluma Veterinary Hospital is now learning and implementing these methods. We understand and act as if your pet is scared, not mean.3. We Treat Our Clients As PartnersCommunication with our clients, to explain things in terms that can be understood, sets us apart. During diagnosis, we explain to the client why we may recommend certain tests, and their potential value; then we share test results and what they mean. After diagnosis we explain all treatment options. This way we treat our clients as partners, and we make decisions together.
