Hemet Animal Hospital has been in existence in the Hemet valley since the early 1900's when Dr Roulston performed both the duties of local veterinarian and undertaker, as was common in those days. In the 1920's Dr Roulston left the valley and sold the hospital to Dr John "Jack" Caldwell who practiced veterinary medicine at Hemet Animal Hospital until the1940's. After World War II, Dr William Aldridge purchased the present location and converted the buildings into a Hemet Veterinary Hospital. He opened for business in 1946 and continued until 1950 when he sold the hospital to Dr Jay Wallis.

For several decades, Dr Wallis was the only veterinarian within 30 miles and performed both small animal and large animal medicine and surgery. In the late 1960's, Dr Wallis suspended his large animal operation and concentrated his medicine and surgery solely in small animals. In 1987, after 37 years of practice Dr Wallis sold the hospital to Dr Perry Kruckenberg and his wife, Dr Bernadine Stallings, who are the current owners of Hemet Animal Hospital. Many changes have occurred over the past 25 years with the addition of digital xray, ultrasound, state of the art anesthesia and anesthesia monitoring, as well as internal medicine specialists and surgeons available for consultation and referral. 2011 marks the 105th year of existence of Hemet Animal Hospital and Drs Kruckenberg and Stallings will continue this tradition well into the future.

Doctor Bernadine was wonderful and tentative. I didn't have appointment cause my dog got a foxtail in her ear and they were able to get it out. I'm so grateful that they were able to help

I was looking for a vet to take an Emergency case as my dog started coughing up blood out of no where. Being pregnant I didn't want to go with my husband so he took my FreddieBear on his own. It was a Friday afternoon...we got a call that more blood work could help narrow the issues down. After some testing we were refereed to a specialist suspecting cancer. More tests could've been done...they could've kept FreddieBear under their care to make more money...they didn't. After numerous visits...with me crying during most (pregnancy hormones...) the staff has always been patient and understanding. We have another dog that will be a regular with this Vet. Highly recommend them.

I've been going to this clinic for years. Something about the staff always put me to ease. Not always the best with people customer service wise BUT they are the best with my animals.

I have had both amazing interactions with this facility and disappointing ones depending on the vet and the technicians

Brandi Bogner is an unbelievable vet however and I really do trust her unconditionally when it comes to my dogs. Unfortunately not every time I come in she is available.

This vet is on the pricey side but when it comes to your animals it is worth it.

Customer Testimonials

Went to take my dogs there and everyone was super nice and wait is not long. While waiting I noticed the animals in the back got taken really good care of. Animals got happy everytime they came in. I was scheduled in the morning and before anyone else came in they would weight them. Would recommend people to go there for their pets. After even did a check up call to see how they were doing. I dont know if every place does that but when they said it, it felt like they actually cared about my babies.


The staff is friendly and professional. The clinic is very nice and clean. They treat my 17 year old cat very nice.


My 18 year old cat, who has stage 2 kidney failure, was in need of care about two months after moving to this valley. Hemet Animal Hospital was very kind to make an appointment and request his records from his previous vet, and Dr. Bernadine Stallings spent a great deal of time exploring his health history, to make informed treatment recommendations. In the past I've always taken my babies to feline specialists, because so many vets' practices are more focused on dogs... but Dr. Stallings was very skilled with my elderly cat, generous with her time, and more knowledgable about cats than any feline practitioner I've met in recent years! And their fees are VERY reasonable. I highly recommend Hemet Animal Hospital !!!


First time here and I will definitely come back... The doctor was great, she is very knowledgeable and has no problem answer all the questions you might have.. She doesn't rush out of the room, she made sure my wife and I were happy with the answers before you walked out..... Very happy


This hospital is a wonderful place. Staff is very helpful and compassionate. The level of respect they had for my family (including my pet ) was beyond what words could ever say I will recommend this hospital to anyone and everyone. Thay for they service that was rendered in my time of need.


We had to put our 4 year old kitty down because of F I P. The vet explained everything to us so we could make an informed decision. She kept our kitty overnight so my wife could come say goodbye as she was at work when we made the decision to put her down.
