Veterinarian and Boarding at One Location!

It’s Good to be Back

Do you live west of Fairfax? Have you boarded your pet at our Pet Retreat located at the intersection of Stonecroft Blvd. and Willard Rd. in Chantilly? If this is a convenient location for you, then you may be interested to know that we have a satellite veterinary clinic inside Pender Pet Retreat at Chantilly. Pender Vet at Chantilly is now accepting appointments on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays!

My name is Dr. Theresa Hendrickson, and I have lived in the Fairfax area most of my life. I grew up 3 miles from Pender Veterinary Centre, went to Oakton high school, and my parents still live in the same house where I grew up. We took our dog to Pender when I was a teenager, and back then I only dreamed of becoming a veterinarian.  When I became a veterinarian, I practiced in Northern Virginia for several years followed by a brief 3 year stint in Florida.  Fast forward to today, I am so happy to be back working in this area close to my family and friends.

When I joined the Pender team I immediately felt I could nurture and grow Pender Vet at Chantilly into a thriving practice, and I already enjoy seeing my “regulars” during Monday, Thursday, and Saturday appointments.  I am now excited to be accepting new clients and hope to help the clinic grow to be open seven days a week like our other practice in Fairfax, Pender Veterinary Centre.

In time, and as more people find out about the clinic, our plan is to extend Pender Vet at Chantilly’s hours and to begin offering surgeries such as dental cleanings, spays, neuters, mass removals etc. Many services will be available to be done while your pet is boarding at the pet retreat to increase convenience. And don’t forget, there is a free dog park on the property to enjoy anytime, so come out stop in and say hello! I am very excited to be at the Chantilly clinic, and look forward to meeting you and your pets!
