Romie Lane Pet Hospital Salinas, CA

Starting June 15, 2021, and the lifting of many restrictions in California, we want to make you aware of what we are doing, in adherence with CDC guidelines, to continue to keep you, your pets, and our staff members safe. Please visit our COVID-19 updates page to learn more about your visit during this time.

Romie Lane Pet Hospital is a full-service veterinary medical facility, located in Salinas, CA. Thank you for choosing us for your pet’s veterinary care and well-being. Our clients and their pets are the reason we continue to thrive in the Salinas community that we have served for over 55 years!

Having taken ownership of Romie Lane Pet Hospital in 1987, Dr. James Ponder made the decision to pass the ownership of his beloved hospital to local veterinarian Dr. Heart Dominguez in June 2020. The professional and courteous staff at Romie Lane Pet Hospital seeks to build on the legacy created by Dr. Ponder and provide the best possible medical, surgical, and dental care for our highly-valued patients.

Emergencies don't always happen during regular business hours! That is why we are open 7 days a week - all day on Sundays - when most other veterinary hospitals are closed. Our urgent care service on Sundays provides extended hours to our patients and may save you a trip to the emergency vet! If your pet is in need of urgent veterinary care please call us immediately. You may still be referred to an emergency facility if we feel that your pet would be better treated by a specialist.

We are committed to promoting responsible pet ownership, preventative health care, and animal health-related educational opportunities for our clients. Romie Lane Pet Hospital strives to offer excellence in veterinary care to Salinas and surrounding areas.

How do we provide compassionate care?

Our goals are:

To provide for our patients. They can't ask for help, but they deserve the best veterinary care available. At Romie Lane Pet Hospital, your pets will always be cared for as if they were our own.

To provide for our clients. We offer our professional expertise so our clients can make the best decision necessary for their pets. No client should ever leave our hospital with a question unanswered or feeling we should have done more. We support the decisions you deem right for your family and your pet.
