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.

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.
