Important Pender Emergency Room Update 7/5/2022 

Until further notice, our Emergency Room will be open 24/7 starting 7/1/2022.

Please remember to call us if you and your pet are in need of medical assistance. If our facility is at capacity, our evening and overnight team has access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs.

How I Got Here

I am a native of Fairfax, Virginia. Unlike many of my colleagues, I did not grow up with a plan or desire to become a veterinarian, it was something that developed with time. I am grateful to be in this area with such a high standard of care for animals, to grow among a wonderful group of mentors, and to practice with passionate and like-minded coworkers.
