Moving to Bellingham from San Diego with our animals in tow, we find ourselves owing a debt of gratitude to the person that steered us to the Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital. We know that everyone at FVH is of the highest caliber and let it be known that you could not do better than place your animals in the their trust.

We have been bringing our dogs to Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital for over 15 years and we have always received excellent care from them. All of the doctors are very knowledgeable and highly skilled. Just as importantly though, both doctors and their assistants are very understanding and compassionate.

My feline companions are my children. I want nothing but the best of everything for them so that they will live long,
happy, healthy lives. Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital shares that commitment and that is why they have been caring for my companions for over
20 years. "Compassionate care for pets and their people" accurately describes the kind of care we experience at FVH.
Everyone there is knowledgeable, compassionate, kind and professional. They always take the extra time to make sure
pet parents understand the health of their kids and know what to do to provide the very best care at home and are able
to make informed decisions about health care.
