Birds are very skilled in hiding signs of illness. Often times when we first notice signs they are not feeling well, they have actually been sick for a few days. In the wild, birds socialize in flocks and are generally prey species. In order to survive, they must act normally so they do not get cast out of the flock and become more susceptible to predators.

Pender Pals: Supporting Pet Adoption in Fairfax County
Pender Veterinary Centre supports adopting and we encourage everyone to visit your local animal shelter when considering adding a new pet to your family. The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is the county’s only open-access, municipal shelter. The shelter provides a safe-haven for 4,000 – 5,000 dogs, cats, birds, and small mammals that come through its doors each year.
As a partner and supporter of Fairfax County Animal Shelter, Pender Veterinary Centre wants to further pet adoption in Fairfax County. One way we can help is by offering a lifetime discount to all Pender companies for all pets adopted from Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
Pender Veterinary Centre is honored to partner with the Fairfax County Animal Shelter (FCAS) to promote pet adoption in Fairfax County. Pender provides on-site veterinary care to animals brought to the shelter. In addition, Pender is creating the Pender Pals Membership program providing discount services for pet owners adopting through Fairfax County Animal Shelter.
We reward your choice to adopt a pet from FCAS in two big ways:
Your pet’s first post-adoption exam at Pender is free!
Pets adopted from Fairfax County Animal Shelter receive a 7% discount for life on all Pender products and services.
As an added bonus, your newly adopted pet may have already been seen at FCAS by a Pender veterinarian so we are familiar with your pet and have all medical notes on file.
Partnering with Pender is a win-win for you and your pet; you ensure you have a healthy, happy new pet and you save on veterinary care.
