New Patients

What to expect:

When you arrive at EPAH you will be greeted by a friendly technician in a welcoming family atmosphere. If you have questions about what to expect you can ask one of our many knowledgeable staff members. If you haven’t been here before we’ll get you started on some admission forms. The doctor will not make you feel rushed and you will have time to ask all those pertinent questions about your pet….even for those silly questions that other doctors may ignore. Your first impression should be a clean, non-odorous, friendly clinic with a high quality but down to Earth warm feel. And don’t worry; there’ll be treats for the pooch and lots of petting for the kitties.

Payment Options:

East Petaluma Animal Hospital accepts all major credit cards; Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also take personal checks and cash. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered. East Petaluma Animal Hospital does not do billing or payment plans and currently does not accept Care Credit programs.

Species we treat:

East Petaluma Animal Hospital treats most all species of small animals, from hamsters and mice to ostrich and emus. In short, EPAH treats all the pocket pets except ferrets, since they are not legal in California. This would include mice, rats, Guinea pigs, chinchillas and rabbits. More traditional animals include dogs and cats. Dr. Rupiper has a special interest in avian medicine and has been board certified in avian medicine and his 20 plus years treating birds has him enthusiastic about taking care of pet parrots, aviary birds, flocks of waterfowl, pigeons and poultry, and larger birds such as ratites like ostrich and emus.

Do you have a small backyard flock of chickens?.. let’s make sure they’re on proper nutrition, have adequate housing and all their special needs are tended to.
