COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– Pet owners now have a new, cheaper option for basic animal wellness services in Colorado.

PetCare Express is a mobile pet wellness service that started in California in 2011 and has now expanded to New Mexico, Texas and Colorado.

One week ago they started setting up shop at Ace Hardware stores around the region offering vaccines, microchipping, heartworm tests and flea and tick prevention.

They say along with convenience, they offer cheaper prices.

“We get a volume discount so we pass that right along to our customers,” owner Joe Gladden said. “There’s never an office visit fee. That takes a little bit of money right off the top, and then you don’t need an appointment so all these things together translate into a pretty major savings on these basic things.”

PetCare Express treats dogs, cats and ferrets.

Their next clinic is being held on July 30 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at the Ace Hardware on North Circle Drive in Colorado Springs.
