Bodega Bay Veterinary Hospital: There's a reason we chose to live and work in a small town. Call us old-fashioned. We like to know our clients. We think people deserve to be treated with compassion and courtesy.

And that applies every bit as much to our animal patients. It never hurts to be polite. A gentle hand, a soft voice, and a few moments taken to get aquainted are often all it takes to soothe a nervous cat or befriend a defensive, snappy dog. We take the time. Animals are people too. We treat your pets as if they were our own. That's how things should be done.

At Bodega Bay Veterinary Hospital you never have to wonder which doctor you'll be seeing. Dr. Michael Trapani is a solo practitioner who handles all aspects of patient care with the assistance of his knowledgable and professional staff. With 32 years in family veterinary practice, Dr. T offers focused, practical and efficient care aimed towards solving his patient's problem in an affordable way that works for the pet owner. Diagnostic and treatment recommendations are based upon the animal's individual needs, not menu-driven requirements decided by some corporate bean counter. Our goal is to provide the highest quality veterinary care in an effective and appropriate manner that every family can afford. We are family-owned and operated and treat our clients the way we would like to be treated - the way everyone should be treated - when we patronize a local business. BBVH = Quality Care + Compassionate Service. You won't be disappointed.

At Bodega Bay Veterinary Hospital, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.
