Who We Are

A few words about us...

Welcome to Vineyard Veterinary Hospital – Quality Animal Health Care in Temecula and Murrieta

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 our Temecula / Murrieta vet hospital.

As a trusted Temecula and Murrieta area veterinarian, Dr. Totman, has been blessed with an ability to connect with his animal patients. So much so, 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 immediately – without having to leave our Temecula / Murrieta facility.

Dr. Totman, a seasoned Temecula and Murrieta area vet, 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 Vineyard Veterinary Hospital, serving the Temecula and Murrieta area, 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.

      These people are amazing!!! They treat your animals as if they were your own. I had a very difficult case with my Rottweiler with hip dysplasia and they were on top of it from day one!!! Dr. Totman and his staff are simply the best in Temecula. I would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for an honest, knowledgeable, loving vet to care for your animal!!!!!!

      In the last 10 years Dr. Totman has cared for all of my fur babies with expertise and compassion that is unparalleled in Temecula. The happiest day is when you get your pet, the saddest day is when you say goodbye to your pet. And with all the things that happen to your pet then and in between, you want expert care in a family-owned environment vs. a corporate sales-oriented one. No one wants to think of that worst day. When that day comes though, as it did for me this week, you want a vet and staff who is sensitive to your pet's needs, comfort, and your grief. You want a vet who loves his patient, and you get that with Dr. Totman and his staff.
