When you bring your practice to Petco you will have a full-service hospital where you are empowered to practice autonomous medicine and make the best decisions for your patients, and where you and your staff enjoy benefits that support your whole self and wellbeing.

At Vetco Total Care you are trusted to practice autonomous medicine, with the freedom to practice within a broader framework. Our area medical directors and hospital veterinarians are truly empowered to determine diagnostic and care protocols, build treatment plans, select medications based on what is right for their patients and keep their overall health and wellness front and center.

Because we’re veterinarian led, Vetco Total Care prioritizes the highest standards of care for our patients. We ensure you and your team have everything you need to deliver rigorous standards of care, from continuing education, to field support, the equipment, and medications needed, and a well-trained staff of licensed and trained vet techs, assistants, and office managers.

Our full-service hospitals offer well and sick visits, preventive care, dentals, transfusions, mass removals, and outpatient surgeries for dogs, cats, and companion animals. Our hospitals are equipped with state-of-the-art labs, surgical suites, radiology, ultrasounds, and more. When you bring your practice to Petco as a Vetco Total Care you will diagnose and treat a wide variety of patients and medical cases.

You will also enjoy the support of an area medical director who will help facilitate requests for training, staff, tools, adding new medicines to the formulary and more. You have a voice and an advocate when you bring your practice to us.
