A wellness exam is a type of preventative care. Preventative healthcare focuses on maintaining wellness and stopping health problems before they occur. Instead of waiting until a health issue occurs.
A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification.
The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck.
Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner
Vaccinations are required for all dogs and cats.
A vaccine administered to a healthy animal stimulates the immune system to mount an effective response to kill disease-causing microbes when the body is exposed to them.
Routine vaccinations are undertaken from when your pet is 6 to 8 weeks old.
Your pet will require boosters at regular intervals and the most suitable schedule will be discussed with you when you first bring him/her in.

Dr Jason Andrews: BSc (Hons) BVSc (Hons) MANCZS (Animal Reproduction)
I have been a companion animal veterinarian for 18 years, having spent my entire working career in country mixed and equine practice. My veterinary interests are wide and varied. However, I have a special interest in theriogenology (animal reproduction) particularly dogs and horses. Having recently completed specialist training at Charles Sturt University (Wagga Wagga) in comparative theriogenology becoming a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Surgeons (in Animal Reproduction).
I worked in Canberra, the Hunter Valley (Scone), an eventually owned a large mixed practice in the New England region of Northern NSW for a number of years but my wife and I always wanted to settle somewhere in the Adelaide Hills.
My wife Karen is a midwife, (very handy when it comes to foaling time) and we have 2 adult children. Amy, our daughter, is a registered nurse, and is currently at CSU in her final year of veterinary science (so you will see her in the clinic very soon!) and Alex our son, who is an electrician in Sydney. And then there are our dogs!!
My personal interests include horses, and I am currently lucky enough to be competitively eventing a number of horses that I have bred using imported frozen semen. My wife and daughter also both ride, again on horses we bred. We also like to keep fit, eat good food and drink red wine, hopefully we have come to the right part of the country for that.
Dr Paula Ellul BVetBio/BVetSc (Hons)

Previous to starting her role at Adelaide Hills Veterinary Services, Paula and her family moved to QLD for a brief period where she worked in a specialty equine practice. However realising South Australia was home moved back to take up her role here. Paula has a keen interest in small animal surgery, equine medicine, reproduction, and lameness.
Outside of work Paula’s interests are competing in stockmans challenges and campdrafting with her family.
