I have 8 rottweilers, which means I spend some time in my vets office. I have grown to really appreciate the staff at Animal Hospital of Cotati. I wen to a different vet before and they hated to go in. Everyone at The Animal Hospital of Cotati seems to have trained my dogs not to be afraid when they com in and it makes life better on all of us. I appreciate the great service.
I believe Animal Hospital of Cotati is THE top veterinary clinic in Sonoma County and I recommend it frequently to my friends, For several reasons. Most important to me is the fact that the vets and their staff stay current on advances in veterinary medicine. Several years back, they became certified by the American Animal Hospital Association, which means that they adhere to important standards of care and maintain a philosophy of constant improvement. I happen to believe that Dr. Katheryn Hinkle, in particular, is exceptionally gifted and she is my go - to vet for complicated issues, She also provides a considerable amount of pro bono vet care in the community, spaying and neutering animals to keep their populations down, and that means a lot to me. For more than ten years, I've been bringing my many dogs and cats from Petaluma to Animal Hospital of Cotati where we appreciate the skills and compassion of everyone who works there, from the front office staff, to the nurses and techs, to the vets. Bottom line is I trust my beloved furry family members will receive the best possible care here - so we keep coming back!

I am 98 years old, and in that time I have experienced a few vets, and I have to say that I have never found any to be as sharp as the ones at Animal Hospital of Cotati. These people really know what they are doing, and the level of compassion when it came to the end of the line for my true friend was something I will not forget, it was tough, but I was glad to have these fine people help me with that situation. A great life due to good care, and a respectable end to it when the time came. We should all be so lucky.

We have been clients of Animal Hospital of Cotati for approximately 13 years. During that time Dr. Hinkle and her staff have always been there for us whether it be for a routine checkup or an emergency surgery. Their expertise, professionalism and caring manner have always made us feel as though our dog is as important to them as he is to us. We thank them and highly recommend the Animal Hospital of Cotati.
