Tips for helping your dog friends stay cool during a hot Summer day
Summer is such a fun time of year! There’s always plenty to do with an energetic pup, like hiking, swimming, exploring the outdoors, or just hanging out in your backyard.
But, hot and humid weather can be taxing and even dangerous for dogs. If you are spending a lot of time outside, pay close attention to their behaviors and limits to prevent heatstroke.
Since dogs don’t tolerate heat as well as humans, heatstroke is a serious issue, but it can be prevented by staying aware of your dog’s behavior and following a few basic tips.
As you head out on your adventures or enjoy your backyard, keep your dog safe and cool with these tips from our vets!Read More »
Keeping your dog safe and happy during get-togethers over the summer is an important consideration which should not be overlooked.
Summer is here, and that means more time outdoors and being with family, friends, and our dogs!
When it comes to planning a summer party, dog safety may not be the first thing that comes to mind; it’s an important consideration nonetheless.
Most dog owners are familiar with the warnings about fireworks and summer thunderstorms, but there are a few precautions you can take to make sure these gatherings are safe and enjoyable for your pet, too.Read More »
As summer approaches, we all look forward to spending more time outside with our pups! Many dog owners immediately head to the nearest body of water for some R&R on the lake or by the pool. Most dogs love water and are natural swimmers. However, there are some breeds which are a little less graceful than others when it comes to the doggy paddle. Having fun with your pet is super important but so is safety. It may seem a little silly to purchase a life-jacket for your dog, but they come in handy for other reasons, too.Read More »
Whether your pup is deserving of a special treat or is just a professional crumb picker-upper, it’s not uncommon for a dog to encounter tasty morsels of human food; however, there are foods – even common fruits and vegetables – that your dog should definitely avoid.
Keeping your dog on a dog-food-only diet can prevent a lot of issues and pesky behaviors.
Dogs who are fed from scraps from the table are at higher risk of becoming overweight and bad habits. Typically, dogs who are fed from the table have a strong preference for foods humans enjoy. These behaviors may result in your dog begging, snapping, or showing other aggressive traits when food is around. If you have small children in the house, we strongly recommend avoiding feeding human food to dogs.
Aside from the behavioral issues which might be associated with feeding dogs from the table, most human foods are perfectly safe for dogs but others can pose a serious health risk.Read More »
I called Tipp City Animal Hospital when I was concerned that my dog had an obstruction after eating two corn cobs. Dr. Jim agreed to see him right away (even though my dog was not a current patient). Each staff member we came in contact with was friendly and professional. When it was discovered that my pup needed surgery to remove the corn cob, Dr. Jim promptly performed the surgery and saved our pup’s life. I was called multiple times that day to receive updates on Charlie’s progress, and Dr. Jim called me immediately once the surgery was complete to let me know it was successful. I am so thankful for the quality care my pup received and the friendly, professional manner of each staff member. We will definitely be using Tipp City Animal Hospital for future vet care for our pets!
We love Tipp City Vets. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We absolutely appreciate the fact that the Veterinarians will take the time to call us to discuss any issues or concerns about our rabbit. They are also very knowledgeable when it comes to exotic pets. Their hours of operation are quite expansive. This is a definite plus. In addition to the pet-friendly atmosphere, the place is always neat and clean.
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!
We love this vets office. We switched my dog over about 1-1 1/2 years ago and her care is the best it has ever been. The staff is so welcoming and informative. We see Dr. Jacob most of the time. We recently added to our dog family and they got us in right away because the new addition had some medical issues needing addressed. We were in the next day and got on a treatment plan and wellness package.
