Important Pender Emergency Room Update:
Beginning on 7/12/2021, Pender had to adjust our emergency hours. We are open to see incoming emergencies from 7:00am-10:00pm until further announced. Pender will still have qualified Veterinary Professionals for nursing care 24/7, 365 with a doctor on call for hospitalized patients. Since an Emergency Veterinarian is not onsite after 10:00pm, please remember to call us if you need help with your pet, as our evening and overnight team does have access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs during night-time hours.

Small Animal General Practice, Physical Therapy, Acupuncture
My husband and I are excited to be new residents of Virginia! We enjoy traveling and sunny days outside with our golden retriever, Walt. Our two cats, Stewart and Lilly, enjoy snuggling on the couch over our favorite tv shows. We are happy to announce that we are expecting our first baby human in July!
During veterinary school, I realized my passion for client-patient relationships and communication. I dedicated myself to small animal general practice upon graduation. However, the joys of mentorship and sharing knowledge led me to become a clinician at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine for nearly four years. During that time, my love for geriatric patients and those with chronic conditions stemmed the desire to complete my certifications in physical therapy (rehab) and acupuncture. I am both a certified Fear Free Veterinarian and AAFP Feline Friendly Veterinarian. I am also a federally accredited veterinarian, who can write international and national health certificates. As a newer member of the team, I am looking forward to developing new relationships with clients and pets in general practice! I am also very excited to help create an integrative medicine service at Pender Veterinary Centre!
