Walmart to open 100 veterinary clinics, launching an online pet pharmacy

  Walmart is now aggressively going after pet owners.

  The retail giant announced Tuesday that it plans to open up several dozen more veterinary clinics in its stores throughout the country as well as launching an online pet pharmacy that will deliver pet meds straight to your door in hopes of luring millennial pet owners who spend more than $1,285 a year on their furry loved ones.

  The retailer said the move makes sense considering 68 percent of U.S. households own a pet and 90 percent of Americans live within 10 miles of a Walmart store.

  Lastly, its stores and online shop will offer pet owners organic and grain-free options for their pets with health-conscious brands like Blue Buffalo, Greenies and Hill's Science Diet.
