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.

Personal Interests

Recently, married, my husband, Randy, was a package deal with two playful cats, Molly and Misha. Outside of work I spend my time playing co-ed volleyball, taking pilates and yoga classes and enjoying my home in beautiful Rappahannock county.

How I Got Here

My father was a physician and my mother a nurse so I had a strong interest in all things medical. I also had a passion for animals from a very young age so as I matured those two interests merged into a career in Veterinary medicine.
