Choosing the Right Veterinarian Matters.

Why Bring Your Pets to Pender?

Woman with her shaggy dog.
You love your pet—they’re part of your family. And just like every member of your family, you want to provide them with the best quality food and medical care available at fair and reasonable pricing. We’ve worked hard to make Pender Vet Animal Hospital exactly that. We recognize that choosing a veterinarian for your beloved pet can be difficult. Do you go with the closest option? The biggest option with the most resources? The smallest option with a personal touch? The chain with the lowest prices? How do you balance and prioritize cost, convenience, and quality?

At Pender, we began with an uncompromising commitment to quality, and we have fought hard to provide unparalleled convenience and fair and aggressive pricing all at the same time. Simply put, we believe Pender Vet Animal Hospital is the best choice for pets and their owners living in Fairfax, Chantilly, Centreville, Reston … in fact all of Northern Virginia.
