Important Pender Emergency Room Update 5/5/2022 

Until further notice, our Emergency Room will be open 24/7 on select days starting 5/1/2022.

Please remember to call us if you and your pet are in need of medical assistance. If our facility is at capacity, our evening and overnight team has access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs.
