Emergencies have a way of happening during off hours…

Do you live within a drive of our location in Fairfax, Virginia and have a question or concern about your pet? Call us at 703-591-3304 with your question.

Pender Vet never clocks out for our clients in and around the Fairfax, Chantilly, Centreville, and Reston Virginia area. If you are within driving distance of our location in Northern Virginia, USA, we’re available to help 24/7 x 365. In a critical emergency seconds count and if you feel your pet is having an emergency then you should come to our 24/7 Emergency Centre right away. But that doesn’t always mean you need to rush directly to our animal hospital at 2am. Sometimes you just need guidance. Perhaps your cat is vomiting and you’re concerned. Perhaps your rabbit was dropped or your dog sustained an injury … and you aren’t sure of the severity.

Our technicians and veterinarians are available to help you determine the severity of your pet’s condition and plan the best course of action. If we determine the circumstances are serious, that may mean hurrying your pet to our 24/7 Emergency Centre. If the situation isn’t an emergency, we may advise a few simple steps and recommend scheduling the next available appointment with your regular veterinarian. If your regular vet is a Pender veterinarian then we can schedule your appointment while on the phone with you.

If you live too far away to drive to us in Northern Virginia, USA

First and foremost, if you feel your pet is having an emergency you should go immediately to a veterinarian near you.  However, if you are not sure you can call us at 703-364-5950 and one of our skilled Support Staff will consult with you to help you make the right decision for your pet and for you.  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.
