About Stringtown Animal Hospital & Surgical Center

Dr. Ellie Scott purchased Stringtown Animal Hospital in 2004 with the goal of creating a pet care facility that is exceptional at preventing and treating illness. Prior to 2004, Dr. Scott worked as a Relief Veterinarian servicing many veterinary hospitals in central Ohio. She witnessed a large amount of variety in these facilities, but noticed the presence of two obstacles at every hospital. The first was a lack of communication with pet parents regarding their pet’s disease risks and how to prevent those conditions. The second was a lack of resources, whether financial, physical, or emotional, that were required when disease occured and treatment was necessary.

The foundation of Stringtown Animal Hospital was built upon overcoming these two obstacle. By focusing on the individual risks a patient has and the needs of the entire pet family, a pathway to healthier pets, happier clients, and affordable care is created.

We encourage you to interact with us. We want to know your expectations, needs, and concerns so we can develop a unique care plan, together as a team, that will be effective, affordable, and successful.

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. Dermot Hutchinson

Dr. Dermot Hutchinson

Veterinarian

Dr. Hutchinson attended The Ohio State University college of Veterinary Medicine. He has a special interest in aquatic medicine. But that does not mean he lacks any passion for feline and canine medicine. Dr. Hutchinson is compassionate, fun, and exceptional in his knowledge of internal medicine. He is also a jack-of-all-trades outside the Vet field. He could be nicknamed “the helper” with the skills he has to lend a hand with deck building and any job that needs assistance. He is also musically talented and plays multiple instruments, including the ukulele.  I would not be surprised if he serenades his significant other, Renna, and his feline family member on a regular basis. All around, Dr. Hutchinson is just one of those people you want to be on your team!
