As any experienced pet caretaker will attest, animal emergencies happen when you least expect them, and unfortunately they don’t always occur during normal business hours. That’s why being prepared ahead of time and knowing where you can turn in the event that your four-legged friend requires urgent veterinary care is important. At Vineyard Veterinary Hospital we never want our patients to go without care, regardless of whether it’s in the middle of the night, on a weekend or in the midst of a holiday celebration. Rest assured that should your companion suffer an unexpected illness, injury or other emergency situation requiring immediate veterinary care, you can count on us and our partners to be there for you, anytime you need help, day or night.

If the emergency occurs during regular hospital hours, a member of our staff will provide you with clear, calm instructions on how to manage your companion’s situation as well as what you should do next. If a trip to our office is necessary, our staff is prepared to handle just about any medical emergency that may arise, delivering critical care in the most efficient and effective manner possible. We will do everything within our power to get the situation under control and improve the chances of a positive outcome.

Our emergency after-hours service is provided through our trusted partners at California Veterinary Specialists. If you dial our hospital for an emergency call and it’s outside of our normal business hours, you will be instructed via a brief recorded message what number to press to be automatically connected to the emergency hospital. No need to keep track of multiple phone numbers or hang up and dial a different number for emergency care. Simply dial the number of the hospital you know and trust, and we’ll handle the rest.

In an emergency situation, every second counts. By eliminating the hassle and time-consuming step of having to call multiple hospitals to arrange care for your pet, we are able to ensure our patients will receive the most timely and effective care available. Once you are connected with someone at California Veterinary Specialists, you will be provided with specific instructions on what the best course of action might be to get your pet’s situation under control and improve the chances of a positive outcome. We’re confident that the care you receive from them will be of the same high quality as what you’ve come to know and trust from Vineyard Veterinary Hospital.

If your pet suddenly becomes ill, or suffers an unexpected injury, you can feel confident that he or she will receive the best available urgent care and attention, either from us or from our trusted partner – anytime, day or night, 24/7. When you need us, we’ll be there for you!

      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.

      I had to take my senior dog in for an emergency, the staff was outstanding as I really didn't think my baby was coming home. They were so understanding and kind!! This is the only place I would take my fur baby to. Thank you for your excellent service and compassion.
