Walmart is launching an online pet pharmacy and adding several dozen veterinary clinics to stores this year.
The retail giant announced Tuesday that it plans to add 100 in-store vet clinics over the next 12 months, starting with nine new clinics in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in late May and June. Walmart already operates 21 veterinary clinics in six states, according to Fox Business.
The vet clinics will offer services such as exams, vaccinations, and treatments for minor illnesses at savings of 40 to 60 percent.
Walmart’s new online pet pharmacy will carry prescriptions for dogs, cats, horses, and livestock to treat conditions like fleas and ticks, heartworms, allergies, arthritis and more, the retailer said.
Orders of more than $35 will qualify for free two-day shipping.
For those who prefer to fill their pet prescriptions in stores, Walmart said it will stock the top 30 most-requested pet meds at its more than 4,500 pharmacies by the end of May, which will allow customers to get their pet’s prescription same-day.
Additionally, its online shop will offer organic options for pets, including health-conscious brands like Blue Buffalo, Greenies and Hill’s Science Diet.
