Dr. Ellie Scott

Veterinarian & Practice Owner

 Dr. Scott graduated from the Ohio State University, College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. Upon graduation, she practiced in Cape Coral, Florida at a busy 6 doctor practice. Upon her return to Columbus she practiced as a relief veterinarian traveling throughout central Ohio.  She enjoyed being able to adapt care plans based on the individual needs of patients. The benefits she witnessed prompted her to develop a care facility that focuses on educating pet parents and working with them as a team. She purchased Stringtown Animal Hospital in December of 2004 with this goal. She provides a unique care experience that quickly comforts her patients and their families.  She enjoys surgery and providing individual positive experiences with each patient visit. Dr. Scott’s family includes two German Shepherds—Bunter & Viggo— and two adorable Boston Terriers—Locee & Mira. She has a long term partner, Barry, that can often be seen helping at the hospital with his sidekick Frenchie, Sascia.
