3 Walmart Stores in Texas Add Essentials PetCare Walk-In Vet Clinics
The openings in Cross Roads, Fort Worth and Weatherford expand the company’s presence in the Dallas-Fort Worth market to seven Essentials PetCare locations, which are designed to provide easy access to affordable, high quality preventative and minor illness care for dogs and cats, officials said.
Essentials PetCare, a walk-in veterinary clinic, is expanding its presence by opening locations in three Walmart stores, all located in Texas. The new clinics can be found in the following Walmart store locations: Cross Roads, Fort Worth and Weatherford.
“We are thrilled to be expanding on our mission of providing veterinary services to more pet owning families in the Dallas-Fort Worth area,” said Joy Anderson, DVM, clinic manager at the Weatherford location. “Our new clinic teams are prepped and very excited to meet everyone.”
Services, available on a walk-in basis, include routine vaccinations, lab work and exams for minor illnesses, including ear infections, common skin conditions and urinary issues. Patients with more serious ailments, like chronic illness, those in need of emergency care and surgical and specialty procedures, are referred to full-service veterinary hospitals in the surrounding community, according to officials.
Essentials PetCare, which is headquartered in Largo, Fla., launched its first retail veterinary location within a Walmart store in 2016. Since then, the company’s network has grown to nine locations in three states, including Florida, Texas and Georgia.
