Client Testimonials - Petaluma Veterinary Hospital
We have taken our pets here since 1992 - Dr. Titchenal, Dr. Czarnecki, Dr. Mohr and for the past 15+ years, Dr. Smith (and Dr. T!). Dr. Smith took excellent care of our yellow lab Sarah who had bone cancer back in 2006.- Carol B. - 1/4/19
Since the day we adopted Stitch, more than ten years ago, Petaluma Veterinary Hospital has been our go-to pet hospital. Drs. Tichenal and Smith, Terry and the rest of staff have always provided Stitch with the treatment and care he needed. Thank you! - Cecilia Q. - 12/28/18

Dr. Smith called after hours with the test results I had been waiting for and helped me make a very difficult decision. She was kind, informative and clear. - Janna R. -11/10/18
I appreciated the thorough exam and explanation given by the Vet and tech. I didn’t feel rushed at all.
Dr. Smith took her time to find the exact location of my dog's injury (soft tissue v. bone) and advised of options and costs before further treatment. In spite of being very busy, they were able to x-ray without sedation, and go over results with me. - Linda P. - 10/22/18

Dr Cantrell is so wonderful with my older dog. Reba has trouble walking on hard surfaces and becomes very anxious at the Vet. Dr. Cantrell put a mat down for her so her feet wouldn’t slide. What a sweet and considerate thing to do! - Tanya S. - 9/22/18
The visit was good for Harrison and for us. Dr. Cantrell was so gentle with him that he didn't feel threatened at all. It was wise of her to ask us to leave the room, because he behaved much better than last year when we stayed.
- Mary W. - 9/10/18
The tech and vet were aware of conditions to look out for during assessment/exam. They worked well as a team when my dog was upset during the eye exam. I’m confident in diagnosis and she is back to her happy self. 100% satisfied. - Amy B. - 9/7/18
My daughter had to bring our very sick dog in while I was on vacation. Dr. Smith was more than willing to talk to me over the phone while everything was going on. She also made sure my daughter knew exactly what to do for after care. - 8/21/18

I'm basing my rating over the last 6 months. Dr. Smith went above the call of duty with Sam, our Bichon who had advanced lymphoma. Dr. Smith called me late one night (on her day off) to give me test results and options for Sam for palliative care. - Theresa C. - 6/2/18
My dog was given excellent care and I trusted the staff to help him with his problem. When leaving, a technician carried him to my car. Thank you for your professional help for my dog.

We have our first puppy and were nervous. There is a lot of information and we didn't count on how much work it would be. Petaluma Veterinary Hospital was such a big help to us. With them we have a knowledgable partner to help us - and they loved him as much as we do.
Mary Ellen S. - 8/4/17
I always feel like MY dog is the most important dog in the office, and when she is not well that goes a long way! To have the doctor check my dog and visit with us on the back lawn was especially helpful. Tntire office is wonderful. - Priscilla M. - 7/28/17
