Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital has been providing exceptional small animal health care to the pets of Santa Rosa and surrounding communities for more than 85 years. Over the years, many things have changed but the one thing that has remained consistent through it all is the unwavering commitment of our caring staff. We are passionate about improving the lives of animals, and we feel honored to partner with you in supporting all of your pet’s healthcare needs.

We are a full-service veterinary practice offering all of the medical, diagnostic, surgical and dental care services necessary to keep your furry, feathered or scaly friend happy and healthy for as many years as possible. Whether it’s a simple check-up or life-saving critical care, we’re ready, willing and able to help. We have been AAHA certified since 2008, and have also been certified as Feline Friendly by the American Association of Feline Practitioners since 2013.

 

Our Staff Sets Us Apart

While our services may be comparable to other clinics in the area, our pet-side manner is second to none. Our staff is friendly and approachable, and we really know our stuff! We have special interests and education in pet dermatology and an expertise in handling the unique needs of geriatric patients. The animals we treat include all manner of household pets, from dogs and cats to birds and pocket pets to reptiles and other exotic creatures. Simply put, if they’re special to you, they’re special to us!

Another thing that sets us apart from other clinics in the Santa Rosa area is the atmosphere within our facility. We are a small, family-oriented practice where getting to know our clients and patients is important to us. We want to learn about who you are and understand the unique personality of your pet because we feel that this enables us to provide the best possible care and service to you both with each and every visit. When you come in with stories and your pet greets us happily – well, that’s what it’s all about for us!

 

Compassion is Everything

Our true compassion and care really shine when we get to interact with our patients, whom we treat like royalty. We work hard to keep the cats, dogs, and birds separated here at SRVH because we want to ease tension for your pet and make the entire experience as stress-free as possible. Your pet will love it when we get down on his or her level and meet them right where they are, making them feel more comfortable. Belly rubs, chin scratches and plenty of tasty treats are just par for the course when you’re visiting with us, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We know, more than anything else, that you want the very best for your loved one. We want to be there to provide all of the tools, education, services, and support you need to achieve that goal. As your pet’s guardian and advocate, you are the single most important person in their life. We’re prepared to do whatever it takes to deepen the bond you both share and provide you with all the information you need to make your companion’s life better.

 

We're Committed to You and Your Pet

At SRVH we treat every pet as though they were our very own, and we’d love the opportunity to extend that same gentle touch and compassionate care to your animal friend. We look forward to working alongside you to help keep your pet healthy and happy now and for many years to come.

I took our pet rat who had an abscess on his face to be seen here. They took very good care of him and hes back to his old self. Not many vets that see pocket pets. I recommend them for sure.

They did the very best they could for my guinea pig, Gizmo. I'm glad there's somewhere in this town that will treat them. If my other guinea pigs ever have any health issues, I hope they would see them as well. I lost my Gizmo after surgery, but the staff were all extremely kind and I was able to have him cremated. He's finally home again.

Very gentle vet. Both she and her assistant were very knowledgeable and let me know all the things my cat may need. Flea treatment yes $1500 preventable dentistry not yet but good to know what to keep an eye on. I would recommend and I will return..

TAKE YOUR FUR BABY HERE! Great experience here from the first phone call! Every single staff member is really caring and straight forward which is greatly appreciated. They communicate quickly and efficiently! Dr. Krome is quick with a response on email and filling prescription request. Front office staff was more than helpful after we had trouble getting records from the last vet. And we really loved the tech too who was very transparent with us. Outstanding all around!We had adopted a senior cat back in January, which EVERY staff member thanked us for at different times, and went elsewhere where they "diagnosed" him with lymphoma but wanted us to do charge us for more tests after an overnight stay and wouldn't give our cat any kind of medication to make him feel better when we took him home until we set up a consultation with a specialist despite their two tests not being conclusive. Dr. Krome gave us the ability to make our cat comfortable with the time he has left from the first visit. We are extremely grateful to have found this place.

Dr. Krome lifted my burden of worries over my elder bird Peachtree's mobility problems. I was happy to see he is a kind and caring vet and felt relieved that my bird was safe in his diagnosis. Although my bird loudly proclaimed his protests, I feel sure that deep in his heart he felt safe, too. Great vet and great staff. My faith in Veterinarians has been renewed.

Highly recommended! Staff was friendly, caring and approachable. Dr. Krome is awesome! Very knowledgeable and treated my dog with care. He explained how to approach her treatment very clearly and encouraged me to call or email with questions at any time emphasizing that I could contact him anytime and as much as needed and it would not be bothering him. I felt totally confident that he would manage my dog's complex issues very well. I feel like this is the best veterinarian that I've ever been to!

I cant express enough how wonderful SR Vet is! We had to put our dog of 13 years down and they could not have been any more compassionate and kind. We brought our new pup in for her first shots and I am so happy that she will be in the best care with Dr Krome, Jean, Megan and the whole fantastic staff!

Was super nervous, never having been to another vet before, you wonder how they will treat your family member that you're taking them to see and I was blown away with how well the Dr. was handling our rambunctious feline. Extremely skilled, she literally didn't notice the shots she received and was very gentle although she's usually very wary of new people. This will be the vet I go to for the rest of my life here in this area.

This is the best Vet Hospital I have ever been too. My pug and I ahed lived in five different states and have backpacked in even pretty much all of the others. This Vet Hospital and especially Dr. Krome are the best pet lovers, caretakers and veterinarians I have ever known.

I can't say enough about Dr. Krome and his staff. We have been going to Dr. Krome for the past two years with a very challenging dog who is afraid of everyone and everything. He was so patient with her and helped us learn so much more about what she needed. Unfortunately, we had to put our Lucy dog down last week, and he couldn't have been more helpful, understanding and caring. We were so lucky and appreciative of him coming to are home to take care of our girl. I would give him and his team 10 starts if I could. The greatest vet ever!

I have been using this vet for about 2 years and they have always been very kind to me and my cat - I couldn't be happier. Big bonus points for a smooshed-face office cat that lives there named Dobi.

I don't usually write reviews it was Google reviews that helped me figure out where to go next after waiting for an hour at my previous vet's office only to be told it wad going to be at least another half hour before I could be seen due to an emergency. This was the second time this had happened to me there and while I appreciate the fact there was an emergency, I should've been told on the outset.So I picked Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital due to it's Goolge reviews. They were able to get my cat in that day, and explained from the beginning it would be a wait (they too had an emergency) in part because they were double booking to get us in. The wait wasn't more than a half hour. The staff were great, the doctor was fantasic. He even gave me his email address incase I had any questions down the road. I highly recommend Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital. I will definitely be using them again.

My first visit today and I am very happy with the clinic. Everyone was so friendly and I loved Dr. Stephen Krome!!! He's the best! He took his time with me and my cat and it really showed that he really cares about my cat's health.☺ I am very glad that I ran across the clinic on the Internet.☺ I feel very comfortable with the clinic and I do believe that I have found a good place for my cat.☺And, I felt they are reasonably priced.☺

Best Damn Vet in Sonoma County! Truly care about your pet not your wallet. You do have to pay but they always go above and beyond what you pay for. Great people from the front office to the back. If you love your pet like family and want to take care of them from the front to the back this is the place to go! Trust me i don't have a lot of money but when I got my dogs back, I was 100% satisfied with every dime I spent! I've been to a few vets in Sonoma County and not only is this the best priced but the best care my pets ever received. Don't waste your time elsewhere The Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital is the only place you need to go. To hell with 5 stars I give them 100 stars!!!!
