Pagano Family and Maggie

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 dogs are my family.  I strive to give them only the best of everything - whether it's their food, exercise, or veterinary care.  Fairhaven Veterinary Hospital combines the thorough and professional care they need with a genuine desire to make them the healthiest and best pets they can be.

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.
