About

About Dr. Gillum:

Dr. Karen Gillum grew up in East Tennessee and East Texas.  She earned her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University and then earned her veterinary medical degree at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.  She graduated at the top of her classes at both universities.  She, her husband David and daughter Deborah previously lived in Indiana and moved to Columbus in 2004. They started the Pet Wellness Mobile Veterinary Clinic in 2006 and acquired the current vet truck in 2013.  They have an energetic and spoiled Bernese Mountain Dog named Fiona, and enjoy vacationing at Disney World and the Great Smoky Mountains.

About the clinics:

The Pet Wellness Mobile Veterinary Clinic is a well-established, family-owned, small animal mobile vaccine clinic.  We provide basic wellness needs for dogs and cats, such as vaccinations, deworming, heartworm tests (dogs), heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention medications.

We are very grateful for our wonderful veterinary technicians and other dedicated staff members who make the clinics possible, and for all the great clients and pets that visit us.

Thank you to the companies that let us hold clinics at their locations.

We travel to various locations around Columbus for the weekend vaccine clinics. Typically we visit each location once a month.  Look for us either outside in our vet truck, or inside the stores if the weather is bad.  We do not have a regular full time “brick and mortar” veterinary hospital. 

In order to protect all the other pets, we will not see pets that show signs of contagious illness. We reserve the right to refuse service for vicious, uncontrolled or disruptive pets.

All pets must be securely under control — that means leashes for dogs, and carriers for cats.  You will need both hands free to fill out the visit record.

Please allow us time to get set up properly and  for our staff to arrive before each clinic.  Do not arrive before the official start time of each clinic.  We are usually less busy (with shorter wait times, if any) during the second half of each clinic.   Everyone who arrives at least 15 minutes prior to the clinic end time will be seen!  But we are not able to stay late waiting for anyone who has not yet arrived.
