Important Pender COVID-19 Update: 

We thank you for your patience as Pender has adapted to a new COVID-19 way of Veterinary Medicine. We will continue to adhere to our Hands Free and Curbside processes until further notice.

"Dr. Torres saved our pet's life as a result of her dedication and conscientiousness. I only wish human care was this good. All of the vets in your exotic animal department, as well as the techs, were beyond exceptional."
