Petco broadens pet service offerings
Petco is delving deeper into pet medical care with the expansion of in-store veterinary services.
The pet supplies and services retailer has opened in-store veterinary hospitals in its stores in Menifee, California, and Highland Village, Texas. Petco opened its first veterinary hospital in October 2017, in Aldine, Texas. It is operated by Thrive Affordable Vet Care, which will also operate the hospital in California. The facility in Texas will be operated by The Pet Vet.
The Pet Vet hospital will offer full-service medical and urgent care seven days a week, spay and neuter, full in-house diagnostic laboratory equipment, advanced ultrasounds, dentistry and more. The Thrive facilities offer a large suite of services as well.
“While pet health and wellness are increasingly important to pet parents, navigating veterinary services in particular can be confusing and overwhelming,” Petco CEO Brad Weston said at the opening of Petco’s first in-store veterinary hospital. “Understanding what pets need at each stage of life, what constitutes routine care, urgent or specialty care, and when to seek veterinary expertise are common challenges pet parents face. By expanding our in-store veterinary services, Petco’s veterinary professionals can help pet parents through every step of their pets’ health and wellness needs, all in one convenient location.”
In addition, Petco will also celebrate the grand opening of a new store in Reisterstown, Md., this month.
