Who We Are

A few words about us...

We are stewards of all things on earth that God gave us dominion over.  Our chosen path is to advocate for our patients’ health care and quality of life.

Working with their caretakers  to keep their special family members in the best health possible is our goal every day we walk into the hospital.

Our veterinarian, Dr. Totman, has been blessed with an ability to connect with his animal patients so well that many of our clients are taken by surprise.  He was even nicknamed “the dog whisperer” by one client!

We will work with you to provide excellent health care management for your special family members.  We don’t just “tell you;” we “show” you.  Instead of rushing, we take the time to answer all of your questions.  After all, we are talking about a very loved member of your family.

We concentrate on proactive and preventative health care to keep them healthy and avoid preventable illnesses.  If anything does come up, you won’t have to wait long for test results thanks to our diagnostic equipment like ultrasound, digital X-ray, dental digital X-ray, computerized EKG, Bluetooth patient monitoring systems and more. Our in-house stat lab allows us to have critical blood test results within the hour and initiate treatments right away.

Dr. Totman, a Temecula veterinarian, brings 40+ years of caring experience into the exam room or surgery room each day.  He doesn’t just rest on his “time in the saddle” or compassion, though; he is constantly honing his skills and knowledge by attending continuing education seminars, webinars, consulting with specialists and, of course, reading.

At Wine Country’s Vineyard Veterinary Hospital in Temecula, you will feel comforted by our calm and confident demeanor that comes from years of experience and knowledge.

Call us today, and let us be a part of your pet’s healthy and happy life.

      I recently called to renew my dog's shots and they scheduled it for a convenient time and I took my dog in and after a brief exam she was given her shots. I highly recommend this Veterinary service.

      Took Sophie in on an emergency basis, I didn't even know they were in the Albertson's shopping center on Rancho California Rd., the whole staff was wonderful. They stayed after hours and treated my dog. The Veterinarian even called the next day to see how Sophie was doing. Will definitely be going back there.

      Amazing staff, great friendly place to take the furry members of your family. The veterinarian was so amazing with my dogs and really genuinely cared about their health and well being. 10/10 would recommend and as long as I'm in temecula I will be bringing my woofs here for all their health and dental needs.
