Philosophy

Windhover Veterinary Center strives to provide   individual attention and a personal environment. Our  goal is to provide the highest quality care to all our patients combining Western medicine with alternatives such as acupuncture, laser therapy and energy medicine. Whether  for a new pet´s first visit or an intricate surgical procedure, we  offer each patient our utmost expertise and attention. We also share a  strong commitment to client education and communication and believe that most sick pets recover faster when kept in contact with familiar  surroundings. Therefore, whenever possible, we try to keep hospital  stays to a minimum and provide ample opportunities for patients in the  hospital to visit with those who love them. While we have many specialized services, it is ultimately  the people at Windhover who make the difference. We are committed to  providing you and your pet with a positive experience during your time  with us.

     Kendra Chavarria is part of our technical staff.  Kendra has had a love for animals since she was very young.  Initially, Kendra pursued a career in carpentry but has found working in veterinary medicine much more fulfilling and rewarding.  Previously, Kendra spent two years living at a veterinary hospital to care for the hospitalized and boarded animals durring off hours.  During those hours she made sure to give them extra care and love.  This helped to keep the animals comfortable during their time away from home.  She has a special interest in exotics not only because they are so interesting to her but also because they are so innocent looking.  Kendra is always looking for seminars and online courses  to participate in so she can continue to learn new things pertaining to her job at Windhover.  When she is not at work Kendra like to go snow-boarding, hike with her dog Lexi and snuggling with her cat Zoe.
