Important Pender Emergency Room Update:
Beginning on 7/12/2021, Pender had to adjust our emergency hours. We are open to see incoming emergencies from 7:00am-10:00pm until further announced. Pender will still have qualified Veterinary Professionals for nursing care 24/7, 365 with a doctor on call for hospitalized patients. Since an Emergency Veterinarian is not onsite after 10:00pm, please remember to call us if you need help with your pet, as our evening and overnight team does have access to the status of other local emergency rooms and can better serve you if you call first to discuss your pet’s needs during night-time hours.
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!
