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 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.

      Thank you so much for seeing my boy Chief. Our vets office was closed and my boy needed to be seen immediately. Not only did they fit us in, they stayed late, after closing, to ensure my boy was taken care of and I was put at ease. I can't thank you all enough

      We lost our Koufax today, after losing Sandi in March. They both lived 16 wonderful years and were a part of our family almost from the time Ellen and I got married.
      The house seems empty and it will be a long while before the sadness wanes, but their memories will always bring smiles to us.

      Sandi and Koufax were both taken care of until their last day by the amazingly compassionate staff at Vineyard Veterinary Hospital. Even at their passing, Ellen and I and our dogs felt that we could not have been in better hands.
      If in need of someone to care for your dog or cat, I highly recommend Dr. Totman, Joan, Verenice, Ashley and the rest of the staff at Vineyard.

      Dr Totman and his staff saved my baby boy. His organs had begun to shut down at 8 months old and for over a month I thought I would lose him. If it wasn't for this office, he would not be here to bring me joy every single day. The staff here is professional, beyond caring & go above and beyond the extra mile. They take care of your furbaby as if it were their own. I received regular updates when he needed to stay at their office and when I got him home, they called every other day to check up on him. I felt completely confident they were taking the best care of my baby.
      I am a fiercely loyal customer once I find an office I can trust and had been taking my furbabies to the same vet my entire life, but I can't say I'd go back to them. Dr Totman and his staff have gained a customer for life. If you take your furbaby anywhere, take them to Dr Totman.
