Like humans, dogs experience anxiety, too. Anxiety in dogs occurs across every breed but affects each dog differently, just like in a person. While unpleasant, it’s a healthy emotion; however, if anxiety is left untreated, it could lead to a disorder or behavioral issues later.
Anxiety in dogs can be brought on by many variables, including past trauma of abuse or neglect, but anxiety can also occur from external stimuli, like household visitors, trips to the vet or groomer, loud noises, and separation anxiety.Read More »
If you are sitting around your home, wishing you had a furry friend to curl up with, you aren’t alone. Shelters throughout the country have seen a sudden uptick in adoptions and rescues since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, and they aren’t slowing down! According to an NPR article, in March, Lucky Dog Animal Rescue adopted out 134 animals in just one week – a typical monthly average.
During a time of sheltering in place and spending so much time alone, it’s easy to begin to crave the companionship of a pet. But, is adopting a dog or cat the best decision for you and your family? Before you rush into adding a new family member, it’s important to understand the commitment of time, money, and care an animal requires. These considerations should take place no matter when you decide to adopt.

It never fails. You hop on a conference call with your coworkers, and suddenly, your furry roommate has a lot to talk about. Whether you are taking a sick day or navigating a new routine, knowing how to have a pet-friendly conference call will save you a lot of headaches in the future.

There are so many questions about the COVID-19 swirling around on social media, the news, and social circles. Since many of us are at home with our families and pets – one question has risen to the surface. Can pets get Coronavirus ?
The short answer is no. Currently, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention does not have evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19 or that they might be a source of infection in the U.S.
Unfortunately, even with this knowledge, we’ve seen an upswing in pet owners abandoning their furry family members at local shelters out of fear of contracting the virus from their animals.
While there are Coronaviruses that infect animals and people, this is rare.
To put your mind at ease, let’s break down the information we have. We’ll also discuss how we can protect ourselves and our pets from the virus.Read More »
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!
Anytime we go out of town we keep one of our dogs at the boarding portion of the hospital. She LOVES it. After a couple of stays she has realized how much she loves this place and no longer tries to pull us out the door when we arrive (this in my book is a good sign)! She’s always exhausted when we pick her up, so that reassures me that they take the time to play with her and that she doesn’t have any built up energy she needs to release once home as attention was not given. The staff is amazing and take great care of the animals. Also very reasonable pricing on boarding for what they offer!
Dr. Harrington and the rest of the staff were very welcoming to my cat Annie. I brought Annie in on an emergency call and all of the staff was very friendly and helpful . Dr. Harrington constantly let me know what was going on with my cats care. Thank you all very much !
Lizzie has been going to this vet since she was born. We love how they care for her, Most of all she loves to go to day care. The honest valuation is great!
