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.

Behavior issues include:

  • 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

Thank you to Dr. Jacob Mathias!! Every visit is exceptional and makes us and our fur babies feel like family. He even takes the time to warm up to our dog who is very nervous around men. Thank you to the support staff as well! I will always refer Tipp City Veterinary Hospital!! You guys are outstanding!!

We've never felt less than welcome here and have always left feeling confident in what was explained to us and any procedure that has been done. We are never rushed and it's easy to tell that everyone here truly does care for your pets and their best interest. I highly reccomend visiting Tipp Vet Hospital for all of your pet's needs.

I revisited Tipp Vet after a long stint with my previous vet that ended in me just not feeling comfortable with the level of care my two small breeds were receiving. I definitely don’t feel this way here. They are exceptionally understanding and helpful with all of my concerns, and Dr. Ken even provided me with his email once so that he could help me further understand some test results he had given me. They are very understanding with my small adopted dog that needs to be muzzled when I bring him to them. They work very slowly with him during his visits and keep me updated on his progress there. I can’t recommend them enough!

The staff were very helpful in getting our girl Precious in after extreme vomiting and diarrhea. And also, they have been FANTASTIC on following up on checking to see how she is doing. Thank you so much. It means a lot when you LOVE our baby as much as we do🧡🐕
