Welcome to Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital located in Bellingham, Washington.

Located in Bellingham, WA, the Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital is proud to be a Fear Free Certified Hospital! We were the 23rd hospital nationwide to have earned this prestigious distinction. As a member of the Fairhaven neighborhood since 1979, we have been providing full service veterinary care and referrals to the wonderful communities throughout Whatcom and Skagit county for 40 years. We are firmly committed to compassionate, professional and individually tailored care for all of our patients and their pet parents. It is our belief that the wellness and healing of a family pet is best done through a cooperative approach between owner, veterinarian, support staff and, most importantly, the patient.  Together we can provide veterinary services that ensure wagging tails and purrs of delight for your four-legged family members for years to come.
Our dedicated team of Veterinarians: Dr. Mark Kummer, Dr. Wendy Zawoysky, Dr. Tamara Godbey, Dr. Mike Hinckley, Dr. Claire McPhee, and Dr. Heather Schasch.

To put it in one sentence, in our long experience with many dogs over many years, no other veterinary hospital has been so excellent in all respects as FVH.  It is the sort of professional, intelligent and caring place that animal lovers hope for, but only rarely find.
 
All three veterinarians we've seen -- Doctors Kummer, Zawoysky and Godbey -- have provided excellent and clear communication in matters ranging from routine physical examinations to emergencies, surgery, and cancer biopsy.  Likewise, support staff are excellent.

Shelly Jones and Calliope

Over the past 17 years, the doctors, technicians and staff have seen us through good times and bad.  Their knowledge, skills and treatment are well prepared and tailored to our pets’ specific needs.  Their surgical skills saved our little Calliope when she was only 11 months old.

The FVH staff are friendly, compassionate. No one thinks about the terrible things that they must see. But they move forward, caring for our pets and never showing the heartache they must feel.  God bless them! It takes an incredibly selfless person to do the work they do.
