Veterinary Chain Expanding in 3 States




It just opened a new location — and more are planned.

DALLAS, TX – CityVet, a group of veterinary practices headquartered in Dallas, is opening a new location in Plano, TX — and it’s also planning other locations.

The Plano location is in partnership with Dr. Douglas Tucker, DVM, who has practiced in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for more than 20 years. CityVet-Preston Park, located at 4701 W. Park Blvd., will hold a grand opening event on July 15.

The Plano location is the first of several expansions planned by CityVet in Texas, Colorado and Georgia, according to a press release.

That includes two locations in Houston and two in Denver, all to open this year, the Dallas Morning News reports. The company plans to expand its footprint to Atlanta next year.


According to the newspaper, a private equity agreement that CityVet signed with Leon Capital Group is helping drive the expansion. Leon acquires properties in various cities and leases them to the veterinary chain.

CityVet’s website currently lists eight location, including the new one in Plano. All are in Texas.

The firm’s business model includes veterinary care, full-service boarding and grooming and a healthy pet products retail store. The company describes itself as a “veterinarian-owned and veterinarian-led group of practices.”

According to the release: “CityVet’s ‘vet-led complete pet care’ provides support to veterinarians by building the business, systems, products, marketing and operational efficiencies, while the doctor has complete liberty to make day-to-day medical and business decisions and have equity as a partner.”
