Walmart offers pet services under one roof

The US supermarket group Walmart aims to offer all pet services under one roof in future.

The US supermarket group Walmart has launched Walmart Pet Care, a full service omnichannel offering, which is set to combine affordable pet insurance, pet sitting and dog walking services for its customers. As the retailer points out, it is intending to leverage industry-leading providers to bring customers trusted pet care programmes in one place.

For the pet insurance, Walmart has stated its intention to collaborate with Petplan, North America's most comprehensive injury and illness pet insurance provider for cats and dogs. The new pet sitting and dog walking services will be included by Rover, an easy-to-use website and app that provides access to trusted neighbourhood care. Walmart Pet Care also comprises Walmart PetRx, in-store and online pharmacy services introduced by Walmart in 2019 that give customers the opportunity to get pet prescriptions at prices significantly below competitors.

"Walmart Pet Care is just one of the recent investments the retailer has made in the pet category, joining its growing assortment of over 1 800 premium and speciality pet products and the expansion of in-store vet clinics that offer Walmart customers quality pet care conveniently where they shop," states the retailer.
