How Our Clinics Work

We are a local family-owned mobile pet vaccine clinic for dogs and cats. We make regular visits to various locations in Central Ohio.  We also provide additional wellness services including heartworm checks for dogs, feline leukemia checks for cats, deworming, microchipping, and selling of heartworm prevention and prescription flea and tick medications.

We do not have a regular veterinary hospital facility and we are not a full-service clinic.  We are not able to see or treat sick or injured pets.

Please do not come early.  We are not staffed or prepared until the posted hours start.   Anyone in line 15 minutes prior to scheduled closing time will be seen, in order of turning in completed paperwork.   In general, the second half of most clinics is less busy than the first half.

We provide everyone a clipboard with paperwork that must be filled out EVERY VISIT.  It is very important that you fill out the form completely and legibly.   For figuring out what wellness care your pet needs, it is helpful if you bring previous vet visit records.   We can assist with determining what vaccines or other preventive care is important for your pet, based on previous records and on its lifestyle.  Note — we do keep a copy of each record, but our records ARE NOT COMPUTERIZED and previous records are not available to us at the clinics.  Dr. Gillum can look up records at home later if necessary.

Tip: We are usually much less busy after the first hour or so of each clinic.

Step-by-Step:  How to be a “Pet Wellness Clinic clinics work

  1. Bring your pet to the clinic that is most convenient for you, using our Calendar.
  2. For safety reasons, make sure your dog is on a leash or your cat is in a carrier. Dr. Gillum will not allow dogs to roam free
  3. Fill out paperwork. Every pet owner needs to fill out a form, every time. The form will ask for today’s date, pet owner’s name, address (with city and zip code), email address, phone number and the pet’s name, breed, color age, and weight.
  4. Turn in your paperwork, being sure it is as complete as possible!  Our friendly and helpful staff is happy to answer questions, make recommendations and help you figure out what your pet needs. We offer vaccinations for healthy dogs and cats of all ages, deworming, dog heartworm blood tests, heartworm prevention and veterinary-only flea/tick prevention.  Pet nail trims are available for a fee.  There is no vet exam fee with vaccinations.
  5. Wait your turn and be ready when you hear your pet’s name called.
  6. Even though we work hard to keep people and pets from having to wait, most people wait at least a short time. We don’t take appointments. Pets are seen on a first-come-first-served basis.  If there is a line, it moves quickly.
  7. We will call your pet’s name and bring you into the vet truck to meet Dr. Gillum, an experienced licensed veterinarian.
  8. We will double check with you what vaccinations and medicine your pet is receiving.
  9. Our staff might offer your pet treats, so please let us know if your dog is not allowed to have treats. Furthermore, our staff will carefully restrain your pet for vaccinations or other activities. This does not hurt the pet.
  10. We can talk to you about the recommended flea, tick and heartworm medicine for your pet.
  11. Payment is due at the time of service. Payment is by cash or credit/debit card (Visa, MC, Discover).
  12. We will give you a bag that includes a calendar of our next locations and your yellow copy of the day’s record. This is your pet’s vaccine record.  IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KEEP THESE YELLOW RECORDS with your important papers when you get home.  It’s helpful to us if you bring each vaccine record to future clinics.

We may refuse services if a pet or owner is vicious, uncontrolled or excessively disruptive.

We ask pet owners to respect the facilities that allow us to hold clinics onsite.
