PetSmart Expands ShotVet Program

Mobile Vet Services Will Provide Affordable Vet Care at More Locations

PHOENIX –  November 13, 2019 – Access to affordable pet vaccines and exams will now be more convenient than ever thanks to PetSmart’s new expansion of its partnership with ShotVet®, a leading mobile vaccination provider.

ShotVet clinic services will be offered in select PetSmart stores that do not have a veterinary practice inside. Pet parents will be able to schedule appointments or walk-in for a variety of services for their dog or cat, including rabies and Bordetella vaccines, Lyme and heartworm tests, exams and more.

“Similar to humans being able to get a flu vaccine inside a grocery store by a licensed, third-party provider, pet parents will be able to get affordable vaccines for their pets at their local PetSmart,” said Gregg Scanlon, senior vice president of store operations at PetSmart. “We’re pleased to expand this partnership with ShotVet to provide pet parents with a one-stop-shop for all of their pet care needs.”

All ShotVet services, including exams and vaccinations, are administered by licensed veterinarians.

“ShotVet was designed to offer easy and affordable preventative care in an accessible environment,” said Jennifer Borgman, CEO of ShotVet. “We are pleased to partner with PetSmart because their shoppers will be able to access to our team of veterinarians who will provide high quality vaccines at the same place they’re already buying their pet food, treats and toys.”

The program was launched earlier this year in select markets and will expand over time to include clinics in over 400 stores. PetSmart also offers veterinary services through Banfield Pet Hospitals inside more than 800 PetSmart stores across the country as well as a number of Independent Veterinarian Operators.
