Appointments & Scheduling
Please call our office (360-676-7770) to schedule an appointment. You may find it helpful to view our map and driving directions, read our visitor information, and learn about Bellingham sites of interest.
For new patients, our staff conducts Intake Assessments in which pertinent medical history and medical records from you and your family veterinarian are obtained. This Intake Assessment is best performed PRIOR to the initial appointment, either by fax/mail or over the phone.
Most of our patients are from out of town and their owners have driven many hours to reach our hospital. Because we respect and value your time, we make great effort to perform examinations and answer all questions both thoroughly and efficiently. Ocular emergencies do arise, however, and we will sometimes be behind schedule, as we might be if your own pet required emergency attention.
In consideration of all of our other patients, a minimum of 24 hours notice for changes is requested. Please call during scheduled office hours to change an appointment.
Emergency work-in appointments will be accepted, at an additional fee. While we will make every effort to see your pet in an emergency circumstance, this disrupts the appointment schedule for other patients and pet owners waiting to be seen.
- Monday – Thursday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
- Friday: 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM (for scheduling appointments and for prescription refills)

In order to best serve all clients who contact us, we request at least 24 hours’ notice of cancellation of your appointment, so that this time slot can be used for another patient. Please call during scheduled office hours to cancel your appointment. If an appointment is scheduled and we are not notified that you cannot make it, this reduces our ability to care for all patients who need our services and there will be a cancellation fee.
