Behavior Modification

There will inevitably be certain situations within your pet’s environment that will make them fearful or anxious. This can sometimes lead to undesirable behavior, fear or even aggression. The good news is we can help change or alter a negative emotional or physical response that your pet may have towards a certain situation or stimulus.

  • Inappropriate elimination
  • Separation anxiety
  • Under-socialized
  • Fear aggression (towards inanimate objects, people or pets)
  • Excessive barking
  • Excessive jumping
  • Thunderstorm/Firework/Noise phobias
  • Over-reactivity (towards inanimate objects, people or pets)
  • Crate anxiety/training
  • Destructive scratching or chewing
  • Resource guarding
  • Desensitization to Nail Trims
  • Desensitization to Veterinary visits
  • Desensitization to Grooming visits
  • Or, any species specific undesirable behavior

We absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

Cannot say enough about Dr. Mathias and his whole team of professionals! Years ago I had a sick cat that other vets said they couldn't save. I brought him to Dr. Mathias and he was able to treat him. He lived another happy and healthy 10 yrs! I now have a dog and live south of town, but still make the trip to Tipp City, as I wouldn't trust anyone else with her care!
