August is Back to School Month, and many of us may be experiencing a quieter household now that the kids are away.

Call us today!

Back To School Month starts in August, and you may not have thought about it, but the season can be a time of adjustment for your cat, especially if the household becomes quieter during the day once the kids are no longer running around. Here's how you can help your feline!

To all our Pender Pet Parents,

We wanted to take a moment to give you an update on what's going on at Pender these days. COVID has had a significant impact on veterinary medicine nationwide. There is a national shortage of veterinarians, especially emergency veterinarians. As a result of this, Pender has had to adjust its operating emergency hours to best serve you. For the foreseeable future, we will not have an emergency veterinarian on-site after 10 PM. Pender will still have on-site overnight nurses 24/7/365 to take care of hospitalized patients, and doctors will be on-call in case any issues arise. Since a veterinarian is not on-site after 10 PM, please remember to call us first if you need help with your pet rather than coming straight to Pender. Our overnight team has access to the operating status of local emergency clinics and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet's needs.

A few things to note:
1. The shortage of Veterinarians nationally has also affected our wait times when it comes to scheduling wellness visits, so please try to plan ahead when your pet needs an annual exam. Should you bring a new pet into your home, we will certainly make every effort to see them within our schedule limitations.
2. More recently, Pender has also started Urgent Care that can help in getting your pets who require medical care but not emergency services, get the care they need.
3. Please remember that we need at least 48 hours to fill medication requests for our in-house pharmacy. Requests that come through outside third-party vendors may take up to 5 business days. We encourage you to utilize our online store at store.pendervet.com

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Our family at Pender loves taking care of you and your pets. We are truly all in this together. #PenderProud

My handsome little pi-rat is bouncing back well 💕🏴‍☠️
Thank you Dr Johnson for a stunning crop job on my last litter - you are an artist and I appreciate you so very much
I want to thank the excellent staff at Pender Veterinary Hospital for taking such good care of our Sheltie while our Vet's office was closed. Their emergency team took her the same day and treated her like their own. Everyone I dealt with was very kind and caring including the people who took her in and then out of the facility and I'm sorry I don't have their names. I did, however, want to give special praise and thanks to Dr. Allgood, Tina and Brenda. Thank you so much! I also wanted to say that the Doctor gave us her e- mail address so we could ask questions of her directly, and she responded with detailed information that was very helpful. Thank you Pender Staff!!
On December 9th, our beloved Caesar crossed the bridge into heaven, leaving us completely heart broken. He went into the local vet for a routine neuter and was tragically taken from us. The chief veterinarian of a popular vet in Springfield, VA botched his surgery by removing the wrong organ and blocking blood supply to his bladder. He endured two days of unimaginable pain before we were told what happened, minutes before his death. We wake up to an emptiness that cannot be described. He was my faithful companion who brought love, laughter, and purpose into my life. At this time, we desperately need love from our community. In his memory, please join us for a socially distanced candlelight vigil with your loved ones. Candles will be provided; please feel free to bring your own. #justiceforcaesar
Dr. Ravee Padte always making sure Bella Arr is in good heath . P.S. no toy was hurt making this video. 🐶
For any folks who worked at or were otherwise associated with Pender back in the early 2000s, and maybe late 90s but I'm not sure of that: You may remember that the crematory we used for ROAs was located in Chantilly. I can't remember the name of the place now, but the wonderful folks who ran it were Russ and Suzi Harman. Suzi Harman passed away last night (Nov 1) after a not-very-long illness. She and Russ had been living in FL for the last several years. Her memorial service will be next Saturday, Nov. 14. You're welcome to send me a Messenger message for the details if you're interested in attending. Sandy Pless (formerly Hendershot), LVT
Rizzo and I had to come here this morning as it was time for her transition over the rainbow 🌈 bridge. We were treated with respect, love and compassion. I was a basket case but the care and love we received was amazing.
I am so sad to see this practice going down hill. Our pets have been patients for nearly two decades. We dropped off a urine sample yesterday morning and tonight, after three phone calls, I STILL do not have the results for my nearly 14 year old dog. I keep getting told a vet will call me to review the results; however, the first one went home without calling me and then the next one didn't call. When I called for the third time today I was once again told a vet would call me, but if my senior dog requires medications I wouldn't be able to pick it up until TOMORROW...nearly 48 HOURS after we dropped the sample. In the past we've received results and medication THE SAME DAY. On their "on-hold recording' they emphasize they can perform urinalysis on-site for faster results. Apparently that's not the case anymore. I asked to speak with a manager and was told there is no manager on site. Seriously? It's a shame that ever since the sale of Pender, care and compassion are no longer their top concern. Time to find a new practice...
Pender provides great care for our rabbits. Their system during Covid is efficient and easy. Highky recommended.
I brought my elderly toy Pomeranian to the emergency office late in the evening after he took a fall and found that he had dislocated his hip. The staff was friendly, compassionate and very professional. I spent several hours there while he received a very high level of care. In addition, he received equally excellent care at his follow up appointment.
Thank you, Dr. Chung and all the techs who are taking care of our Sadie Girl! We know Sadie is in God's hands, and she could not have a better doctor. Prayers for Sadie. 💞🐾
Great staff, very caring for animals. Does everything in your best interest. Answers any questions you may have. Treat all sorts of animals no just cats and dogs I love that they have the exotic section I can take my bearded dragons and turtle to
