Pender’s 24 Hour Vet & Emergency Animal Hospital offers all of these for Washington D.C. Metropolitan Area residents.
Current law and our standards prohibit us from practicing medicine over the phone without physically examining your pet but we can assist you in deciding if your pet is having an emergency and needs to be seen by an emergency veterinarian in your area.
"A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere” –Groucho Marx
I love all of my patients, but have a special place in my heart for cats. I am Fear Free certified and hope to give your pets an enjoyable experience while visiting us.
I love spending time outdoors and enjoy bicycling, camping, kayaking, swimming, and hiking. Recently I moved from Central Florida with my husband Kevin and our four fur babies; 3 cats (Ella, Maggie and Buttons) and 1 dog (Webster).
Prior to pursuing a career in Veterinary Medicine, I received my Bachelors degree in Hospitality Management and spent many years in the hospitality industry working in hotels, restaurants, Walt Disney World and as a flight attendant for JetBlue Airways. When I had my epiphany of wanting to become a veterinarian, I joined the Class of 2017 at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine.
