Company’s first locations outside California will open their doors next summer
Modern Animal, a Los Angeles-based veterinary upstart, is expanding its locations to Austin and Dallas, Texas in summer of 2023.
"We were drawn to Austin and Dallas by the shared set of expectations that these cities have with our hometown of Los Angeles around experience and quality of care. Like many Californians who made the same move to Texas in the last two years, this second home really feels like a natural fit,” expressed Modern Animal founder and CEO, Steven Eidelman, in a company release.1
The momentum has been on the up this year as Modern Animal has also made its way in Greater Los Angeles, entered its second market in the San Francisco Bay Area, and received the fresh capital of a $75M Series C led by Addition. The company’s rapid growth was in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that led to a spike in pet ownership for a veterinary field already plagued with staff shortages.
"We're fundamentally re-imagining the way that people work in this industry, and in order to bring modern veterinary care to more pet owners while still honoring the boundaries of our care providers, we ought to think creatively and leverage technology in new ways, which is a largely untapped area in our profession,” said Modern Animal vice president of medicine, Christie Long, DVM.1
Modern Animal will debut its Texas expansion with a flagship location in North Austin at 5118 Burnet Rd and second clinic at 1100 S Lamar. The hiring process has begun for veterinary leadership roles in Austin and Dallas, according to the release.
