Coco was such a good girl during her visit with Dr. Hyatt. There’s so much value in bringing in your pets for a Wellness Exam. They need check-ups just as often, if not more than we do to ensure they are in good health. The extra love and attention from our staff doesn’t hurt either 🥰

It was suspected this collapsed red-tailed hawk had been struck by a vehicle until we admitted her and took radiographs. Turns out she was shot and had a bullet pass through the bone in her left wing, and has another imbedded in her right. The rest of her injuries are either from falling from the sky, or being hit on the road. She's a fighter and we think she's going to survive. Thank you to Fairfax County Animal Shelter and Pender Veterinary Centre for their help with this rescue.

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
Desmo: The face you make when you barked like crazy at the white Bulldog before you got into the Veterinary waiting room and then realized it was a statue! Doh! #rescuedog
I want to thank Dr Beth Cranston and the staff for their kindness and support as I had to put down my sweet Rocky June 22. He was boarded there the week before while I was hospitalized and I knew he was in great hands there I am now catless and when I adopt again some day Pender will be my choice of vets I even got a hand written sympathy card from Dr Cranston
Chico became sick April 15th 2019. He was later hospitalized (BUDAVAC) at Pender May 16th for Pseudomonas. May 31st....today...he trys to put 4 pistachios in his beakers. He is not back to himself. Everyday is a working progress. Dr. Carole and staff are amazing.
