Now you’ll be able to take your pet into Walmart for routine vaccinations and treatments for a variety of minor illnesses, such as ear infections, common skin conditions, and more. Essentials PetCare Clinic has already been operating in other cities across the U.S. In addition, Walmart will also be launching an online pet pharmacy.
According to the press release, the Dallas-Fort Worth clinics will be located at Walmart stores in the cities of Anna, Cross Roads, Fort Worth, Frisco, Gainesville, Kaufman, Prosper, Royse City, and Weatherford. The first Essentials PetCare clinic is scheduled to open on May 22 at the Kaufman Walmart on Kings Fort Parkway, followed by other locations in June. Specific opening dates for the other clinics will be posted on the company’s website in the coming weeks.
“Convenient access, as well as affordability, are often cited in industry research as key determinants in why millions of pet dogs and cats in the United States are not receiving even the most basic medical care. Having store locations within 10 miles of nearly 90 percent of the country’s population makes Walmart an ideal venue for our veterinary clinics,” said Dr. Douglas Spiker, founder and president of Essentials PetCare.
