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 are not only professional but caring passionate people. I’m so grateful to him and his entire staff for the consistent amazing care they provide my fur babies. It’s comforting knowing my babies have someone so special looking after them.

      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.

      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.
