Choosing a Veterinarian

Choosing the Right Veterinarian Matters.

Why Bring Your Pets to Pender?

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.

Here’s why…

The Pender Difference

Our Mission: We are dedicated to being a caring companion animal hospital. We promise to provide quality veterinary care, pet support services and education with compassion and integrity.

We know that everyone has a mission statement; sometimes they start to sound the same. But we take our mission seriously, and we’ve turned that mission into real-world advantages that merge quality with convenience and cost. We call this the Pender Advantage.

The Pender Advantage

  • 24+ Highly Trained Veterinarians Who Love Caring for Animals.

    Your pet’s veterinarian is also your pet’s dentist, psychiatrist, cardiologist, radiologist, anesthesiologist, surgeon, ophthalmologist and much more. Choosing the right veterinarian matters! Browse our extensive staff of doctors to find the veterinarian doctor who fits the needs of both you and your pet.

  • 24 Hour Emergency Animal Hospital — 365 days a year!

    Your regular veterinary facility is also your 24 hour emergency facility. At Pender, all your pet’s records are already here—which means no lapse of care while waiting for your pet’s records to be faxed.

  • 24 Hour On Call Support — 365 days a year!

    You don’t always know the severity of your pet’s issue. Sometimes you need to bring them in … sometimes you just need guidance. We have veterinarians & trained support-staff available 24 hours a day x 365 days a year to answer your questions and determine the right course of action.

  • Convenient Road Access

    Convenient access immediately off Route 50 between the intersections of Fairfax County Parkway and I-66 — making Pender Veterinary Centre easily accessible to all of Northern Virginia. Our convenient location and 24/7 x 365 service makes Pender Veterinary Centre the most reliably convenient alternative in Northern Virginia.

  • Chantilly Veterinary Campus and Pet Retreat

    Our Chantilly campus and pet retreat is located within minutes of Dulles International Airport and offers 6 wooded acres and a dog park open to the public.

  • On-site Lab

    Over 95% of our lab testing is managed in-house. Most of the time we have results ready the same day!

  • On-site Pharmacy

    We continually negotiate with our suppliers to offer the best prices possible—often lower than big retailers & other pharmacies. Open 24 hours x 365 days a year.

  • On-site Food Store
