Dear clients of Whatcom Veterinary Hospital,

As of December 31, 2023, I will be retiring from my position at Whatcom Veterinary Hospital. It has been an honor to have served you and your pets for the last 31 years.  I thank you for trusting me with the care of your family member.

Over the years I’ve gotten to know many of you. We’ve shared a lot of stories and have enjoyed some wonderful conversations. Thank you for your warmth and kindness. It has enriched my life and I have many fond memories. You have become friends.

I’ve also had the pleasure of working alongside other dedicated veterinarians and support staff members. Their assistance to me has been invaluable and I’m confident that they will continue to provide excellent care for your pets at Whatcom Veterinary Hospital.

While I will miss serving as your veterinarian, it has given me the opportunity to grow as a person and I hope to continue to serve in other capacities as needed. I look forward to spending more time with my wife and family and pursuing other passions.

May your lives be filled with joy and peace,

Dr. Don Aupperlee, DVM
