Report: Pet care now available at Walgreens stores in Massachusetts
DEERFIELD, Ill. — Through a partnership with a Florida veterinary company, ShotVet, Walgreens is offering preventive care services for pets at select stores in Massachusetts, according to the Boston Herald.
ShotVet has been offering its services in conjunction with Walgreens locations in Florida and Georgia for several years. And now, starting this weekend, ShotVet is offering its services about 50 Walgreens locations in the state, according to the Boston Herald article.
Services are performed by state-licensed veterinarians and include rabies and other vaccines and even micro-chipping. The cost is reportedly about 70% cheaper than the cost of a traditional vet clinic, the Boston Herald reported.
Under the agreement, ShotVet will visit each participating Walgreens for an hour each month with a vet, technician and “client educator” who explains its packages, the article stated.
