Austin, Texas, November 4, 2022 — [PRNEWSWIRE] — Following their August announcement of a $75M Series C led by Addition, Los Angeles-based veterinary upstart Modern Animal today revealed plans to bring their fully-integrated veterinary experience to the pet owners and care providers of Austin and Dallas, Texas next summer.
This announcement caps a year of steady growth for Modern Animal up and down California—expanding its footprint in Greater Los Angeles and entering its second market in the San Francisco Bay Area. On the decision to take the step beyond the company’s home state of California and into Texas, Modern Animal’s Founder and CEO, Steven Eidelman says, “Like many other Californians who made the same move over the past two years, we were drawn to Texas by the commonly shared lifestyles between cities like Austin and Dallas and our home of Los Angeles.”
“Like many other Californians who made the same move over the past two years, we were drawn to Texas by the commonly shared lifestyles between cities like Austin and Dallas and our home of Los Angeles.”
Modern Animal’s growth spurt is largely motivated by an urgent nationwide need for more convenient, modern veterinary care options for both pet owners and veterinary professionals in the wake of a pandemic that resulted in a boom in pet ownership and exacerbated an already dire shortage of veterinary talent.
“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’s Vice President of Medicine, Dr. Christie Long, on Modern Animal’s approach to addressing the marketplace mismatch.
First on the Texas expansion slate will be Modern Animal’s North Austin Flagship at 5118 Burnet Rd. The company is already in the process of hiring veterinary leadership in Austin and Dallas.
