Scout Care | Join Our Team

We are changing the way pets receive care and empowering the teams that provide it.

Join our team


Scout Veterinary Care was created with a simple goal: to help make the unexpected moments of pet ownership easier. Our urgent care facilities are here to support both the veterinary community and the pet community by providing accessible care when pets need it most, filling the widening gap between primary care and specialty care. Our modern and technology-driven practices are designed to make life easier for our team while providing same-day and next-day appointments to the city’s ever-growing population of dogs and cats. Cases range from routine last minute care to those requiring more extensive in-house diagnostics, treatments and nursing care.

Our commitment

Scout was built on the premise that the veterinary profession can and should be better. We can have better mental health, provide better care, be better partners, support our teams better, and grow better together.

As an accomplished executive with a track record of building and investing in team-oriented, fast-growing companies and a frustration with the current state of the veterinary industry, Tripp set out to build a better solution for vets, pets and pet owners.
