Petco announced the opening of its 100th in-store veterinary hospital, located in Encinitas, CA.

“Petco has doubled down on our full-service veterinary care expansion plans over the past year, and we’re thrilled to be opening our 100th in-store veterinary hospital in Encinitas – a location that neighbors our corporate offices in San Diego,” said Mike Nuzzo, chief financial officer/Chief Operating Officer at Petco. “We’re especially proud to continue expansion during this time, as vet care is in higher demand than ever.”

The Encinitas in-store hospital opening is in partnership with THRIVE Affordable Vet Care, which Petco established a relationship with in 2017 as a priority regional veterinary partner. Additional regional veterinary partners contributing to veterinary growth plans include Global Veterinary Partners, VetnCare and Vetco Total Care.

Petco has more than doubled its count of full-service in-store vet hospitals in the span of a year. Petco “expects to increase momentum through the end of FY20,” according to a press release.

“We remain committed to driving positive change in the overall health and wellness of pets, and the growth of in-store veterinary hospitals at Petco helps us uphold this commitment,” said Dr. Whitney Miller, Director of Veterinary Medicine at Petco. “Our ultimate goal with rapid veterinary expansion is to provide more opportunities for pet parents to establish and maintain a lifelong relationship with their veterinarian.”
