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.

How I Got Here

I am originally from Los Angeles where I raised cockatiels, reptiles, and small mammals which sparked my interest in veterinary medicine from a very young age. Because of my love of animals I had the single minded goal to become a veterinarian and have worked in animal care since middle school. I have traveled to other countries to provide education and decrease animal overpopulation through low cost spays and neuters. I love being the voice for animals in need and I will work on promoting the human-animal bond while providing the best quality of care for each individual animal that I have the opportunity to meet.
