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!

Our experienced Temecula / Murrieta veterinary team 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 become your trusted Temecula / Murrieta area veterinary partner.

      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.

      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
