Petco has expanded its in-store hospital footprint into more than 20 states across the country with the addition of three new regional veterinary partners.

The company has reached agreements with Global Veterinary Partners (GVP) of Weston, Fla.; VitalPet of Houston, Tex.; and VetnCare of Oakland, Calif.

“The growth of in-store veterinary hospitals at Petco is part of our commitment to driving positive change in the overall health and wellness of pets,” says Whitney Miller, DVM, MBA, DACVPM, the company’s director of veterinary medicine. “By partnering with regional veterinary providers, including their respective networks of seasoned professionals, we can provide more pets and pet parents with convenient access to affordable, high-quality veterinary care, ultimately encouraging a deeper, more meaningful pet parent/vet relationship.”

Petco is also expanding operations with existing partners Thrive Affordable Vet Care and The Pet Vet to open the more than 50 veterinary hospitals currently operating within Petco stores in Texas, California, Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Utah, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri.

“At Petco, our ultimate goal is for every pet and their parent to have a lifelong relationship with a veterinarian, and expanding our network brings us one step closer to making that possible for all pet parents,” Dr. Miller says.
