Mark your calendars for the June 7 Tulsa Pet Wellness Fair. Sponsored by VCA Animal Hospitals and the Humane Society of Tulsa and hosted by The Campbell Hotel and Event Center, this event has something for every pet.

“Wellness care allows pet owners to identify health concerns early or possibly prevent them altogether in order for that pet and pet parent to live a longer more enjoyable life together,” said Rocky McKelvey, DVM and regional medical director of VCA Animal Hospitals in an email.

“VCA is big promoter of wellness care. With our new wellness plans called Care Club, we are working with our clients and the community to extend that length of the pet/Parent bond,” McKelvey said. “Working with the Humane Society of Tulsa, it was a natural move for us to sponsor this event.”

Between noon and 5 p.m. Sunday, June 7, stop by The Campbell Hotel Renaissance Square Event Center, 2620 E. 11th Street, and take advantage of the many services that will be offered.

Free pet photos provided by the hotel ensure that you will have a good photo of your pet in a time of disaster and Oklahoma Alliance for Animals will be handing out free pet tags. Also offered for free will be nail trims and screenings of your pet’s eyes, ears and teeth.205 Wellness Fair

Microchipping will be available for $20 with free microchip scans. Humane Emergency Animal Response Team (HEART) grab bags will be available for $5. These are disaster preparedness Grab N Go Bags that come with a list of suggested items to put inside so you have exactly what you need in an emergency situation.

Additionally, there will be low cost wellness testing for heartworms, feline leukemia and AIDS.

McKelvey says that 20% or more of animals screened will have an issue that needs to be addressed.

Keep your furry family members healthy and take advantage of this event.
