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.
Pender’s answer is that each pet should be evaluated by one of our veterinarians at the time of their annual exam and the doctor will make recommendations based on the pet’s lifestyle, breed, age, and exposure. We don’t vaccinate our own pets with more than they truly need, and we treat your pets the same. We do recognize, however, that vaccines are the best and safest agents to control and prevent many common infectious diseases. Our vaccines are chosen for quality, effectiveness and safety … not by price!
