We encourage you to contact us today to schedule your next appointment with our animal clinic, and ensure that your pet has access to the best pet care available!

From all of the veterinarians and staff at our pet clinic, thank you for your interest in the WellPet Center and for your continued support!

Every moment you spend with your pet is important. Whether it’s snuggling up at the end of a long day or tossing a ball around outside, these moments enrich our lives and bring incredible meaning to the time we spend with our pet. That’s why we believe so strongly in routine veterinary care and tailor our approach to the specific needs of your pet. This can help to prevent serious conditions like diabetes, heart disease, dental issues, arthritis and more. We encourage you to call us to schedule your next veterinary appointment so that we can screen your pet for potential issues and ensure they’re on track for a long and healthy life with you by their side.

Your pet is unlike any other. This means that their needs are different according to their age, lifestyle and a variety of other factors. Since your pet is unique, our approach to any vaccination recommendation will reflect a personalized level of care. Vaccinations can prevent acute medical issues that may otherwise become problematic if untreated while helping to ensure the long-term health of your pet.

Does your pet keep you up at night with non-stop itching? We have solutions which can help both you and your pet get back to a good night’s sleep. The WellPet Center is happy to provide a comprehensive evaluation to determine what issues exist and to treat any allergies, rashes or skin conditions as early as possible. This can greatly improve the quality of life and comfort of your pet. If your pet has been showing signs of irritation from allergies or dermatological discomfort, we invite you to get in touch with us today.

Arthritis and chronic pain can fly under the radar and go undetected for far too long. This can impact the quality of life experienced by your pet. Some pets will hide signs of discomfort, making it especially difficult to detect if they are in pain. If your pet is limping, experiencing hindered mobility or is displaying other signs of discomfort, we encourage you to visit us so that we can examine your pet. From pain management techniques and medicines to other holistic practices, we’ll work to pinpoint the issue and implement rapid solutions to make sure your pet is able to experience the joy and ease of a pain-free life.

Pet dental health is an important component of overall health and wellness. Certain practices like regularly brushing your pet’s teeth and administering dental chews can help to assist in oral health efforts, but we also recommend that you request a routine dental examination during your checkup so that we can ensure there are no issues. The right approach to dental care can help to prevent infections, abscess, loose teeth and other ailments before they become problematic.

Radiology allows us to receive deep and unparalleled insights into the health of your pet. X-rays can be a crucial diagnostic tool and also ensures that no issues that are hidden from plain sight ultimately go undetected. Routine bloodwork and evaluations can help our veterinarians to better understand the general health conditions of your pet, but X-rays give us a deeper understanding into the health of your pet, both inside and out.

Our state-of-the-art equipment includes ultrasound, which allows for increasing diagnostic visibility in a non-invasive and totally safe way. Our use of ultrasonography requires no radiation to be used and can deliver profound insights into the internal health and functioning of your pet. Ultrasound is one tool we utilize to gain critical understanding of the health of vital organs like the liver, spleen, pancreas and more.

Our expansion into our current 10,000 square foot facility has allowed us to build a comprehensive in-house laboratory. This significantly decreases the turnaround time required for processing important tests like urinalysis and bloodwork. Having these tools at our disposal ensures that The WellPet Center is a one-stop shop for a wide-range of needs, since we can evaluate your pet’s health, conduct tests and review the results without requiring lengthy processing times or shipping samples out to an off-site laboratory.

We want your pet to stay cool and calm, and so do you! However, itching, dry skin, rashes and other issues can often create issues for pets, much like they do humans. We can examine your pet for any dermatological issues that may be persistently bothering your pet. Whether we need to prescribe a topical medicine or another solution, we will work to ensure the total health and comfort of your pet!

Gluten free? Raw food? Grain-free? Is a “fad diet” really a good fit for your pet? The WellPet Center is your go-to resource for trusted advice on what to feed your pet. By spending time with your pet and looking at factors like weight, age, health history and personal preferences, we’ll be able to tailor our approach to the direct needs of your pet and help to explain the wide-range of often confusing dietary choices pet owners face each day.

Our in-house pharmacy is available here and offers competitive pricing and free shipping on purchases. We work exclusively with the highest recommended prescriptions and their generic counterparts to ensure no pet receives subpar medicine otherwise available online. Utilizing a trusted source like the link above is very important and encouraged by The WellPet Center. This way, you know that you’re receiving genuine medicine which is directly recommended by our vets. Additionally, you can refill and select medicines from the comfort and ease of your own home.

Tragically, thousands of pets are lost or stolen across the country each year. Many of these incidents are entirely preventable, since microchipping allows your pets to be registered and tracked within a nationally registered database. Microchips are smaller than a grain of rice and are gently placed under your pet’s skin to ensure they are tracked accurately if they leave home. We highly recommend taking this step to ensure the long-term safety of your pet. Please ask about our microchipping services and we’ll be happy to help you learn more about this recommended program.

Mary Lou - Dog Grooming

Mary Lou has worked in the animal field since the age of 19 when she began her first job as a kennel technician. Her employer at the time was a groomer and provided Mary Lou with on-the-job training. She loved every second of it.

Each pet always remembers its groomer. As a result, Mary Lou tries to keep your pet’s anxiety as minimal as possible making it a positive experience that they will look forward to returning to in the future.

She lives at home with her Border Collie/Aussie cross and two male cats who are fortunate to have her as their mom.

Mary Lou finds that it’s best to pay it forward and always treat others with respect.

Veronica first realized how much she adored pet care when she started volunteering at the Humane Society of Albuquerque in New Mexico. Right away, she knew that a career in animal care was the perfect path for her. Now, Veronica has been a professional pet groomer for nearly 20 years!

Veronica is a native of Houston, and learned the grooming trade in Albuquerque under a pair of excellent mentors from 1997 to 1999. She then moved back to her hometown to begin her grooming career in the area. As a member of The WellPet Center family, Veronica particularly enjoys discussing grooming styles with animal owners and seeing to pets’ walking and feeding needs during their time here at the clinic.

Outside of work, Veronica enjoys traveling, listening to music, reading, watching movies, and spending quality time with friends and family.

We want to make providing your pet with quality medical care easy and affordable. To that end, we offer a broad selection of payment options designed to make working with us easier and more convenient.

We accept payment for our services in any of the following forms:

  • Cash
  • Personal Checks
  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover
  • American Express
  • Pet Health Insurance
  • CareCredit

Please note, payment is due in full at the time services are rendered, unless other arrangements have been made ahead of time. All of the payment options above may be combined as needed, and our staff is always happy to offer guidance and to work with you to manage costs in a way that makes the most sense for your particular situation.

Ultimately, when it comes to paying for veterinary care, every situation is unique. You may find that you could use a little guidance in selecting the options that would best suit your needs. The friendly staff at The WellPet Center are knowledgeable when it comes to financing veterinary care costs. Please feel free to contact us with any questions about payments, pet insurance, and other services. Whatever your financial needs or situation, we’ll be more than happy to work with you to make your pet’s medical expenses as affordable as possible.

Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance can help protect you in the event of an unforeseen veterinary medical expense. Depending on your plan and coverage level, it can also help lower your regular veterinary bills as well. In some instances, clients may be able to combine their insurance with any of our other convenient payment options to significantly reduce out-of-pocket expenses. So, not only will those unexpected situations be covered, but even the cost of your pet’s routine wellness exams, preventative care, surgery, and prescriptions may also be covered.

At The WellPet Center, we’ve witnessed countless clients benefit from insurance. Our dedicated staff would be more than happy to help you choose the perfect plan for you and your pet.

CareCredit provides an excellent option to help manage your animal companion’s veterinary care expenses. They offer a convenient plan that requires no payments for the first six months, allowing you to pay off your veterinary bills over time.

Clients with pet health insurance can benefit even more, since CareCredit will typically cover the deductible at the time of service and the insurance plan may reimburse as much as 90% of the total cost. This means that if you combine CareCredit with your pet health insurance, you could potentially incur almost no out of pocket expenses at the time of services, and ultimately only pay as little as 10% of the entire cost of diagnosis and treatment.
