Your cat or dog may have the heart of a tiger and the soul of a wolf, but we all know our companion animals are more suited to the couch than the jungle. Widlife and pets don’t mix. Whether you live in a rural area or right in the center of town, Tipp City shares a home with plenty of local wildlife from hawks to coyotes. Ohio’s animal population can be a challenge for pet owners who want to ensure their furbabies are safe and comfortable.
It’s easy to assume squirrels are the closest encounter with nature your dog or cat will ever have, but a chance run-in with a predator can happen in the blink of an eye. Even the most diligent pet parents can’t always anticipate the next adventure their daily walks may bring. That’s why it’s important to take preventative measures and be proactive in protecting your pets from wildlife.
Tipp City Veterinary Hospital has put together a helpful guide for pet owners living around wildlife. Get ready to fearlessly explore the trails, parks, or your own backyard with a little more peace of mind!Read More »
A dog is more than just a pet. They’re a furry child. They become a huge part of your life and your heart whether you’ve had them since they were a puppy, or they’re a new addition to your family. As part of your family, it’s only natural that you dedicate the time and effort required to keep them healthy and happy. You happily groom them, take them for walks or to the dog park to keep them active, buy high-quality food, and take them to the vet when they’re sick. And since dogs are at risk for heartworm, ear mites, and fleas, you give them preventive medicine to keep them safe. It’s the smart thing to do, as it’s the only line of defense against such parasites. But, did you know some medications may endanger particular dogs more than help? Let’s discuss ivermectin toxicity.Read More »
Getting a new pet is an exciting and even a little mysterious experience. Whether you’re getting a dog or a cat, a pedigree or a shelter rescue, one of the most important decisions you can make right now is what to feed your new lovable fur-ball. Each pet has unique needs when it comes to food; whether they need a high-energy, high-calorie diet or a practical low-cal diet for a more chill lifestyle.
You may be tempted to pick up the cheapest bulk-sized bag of pet food at your local grocery store, and that could even be the right choice. But first, take a few minutes to double-check whether that bulk-sized bag has the right formula, ingredients, and trustworthiness to really keep your pet bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. If you’re not sure where to start, don’t worry. We’ve put together everything you need to choose the right food for your new pet.

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you and your dog can’t have fun! Cold weather can make dog activities a bit more challenging; but there are still several ways to have fun with your dog and help him burn off some energy.
Dogs need to explore and run even when it’s cold out. Fun winter activities provide the perfect opportunity for your dog to do that. They will keep your dog happy and healthy throughout winter. They’ll also provide fun ways for the two of you to spend time together! While staying inside, curled up with blankets on the couch, is a great way to spend part of winter, there’s no reason to stay locked up inside all winter long. Winter adventures are easy to have and perfectly safe, so long as you remember the safety basics and limit your dog’s exposure to the elements.

Great clean facility, super friendly staff! Dr Joel was really nice, attentive and knowledgeable! Love that they have Sunday hours and that they see small pets like our guinea pig. They took great care of her and were able to get us a Sunday appointment right before closing on Saturday. Would recommend and go back.
I really appreciated the time the doctor spent with us. Dr Jacob was very very thorough and did not rush us out. He answered all my questions and concerns and then some. I learned more from him in an hour than I did from our previous vet over the last 7 years. We decided to switch vets because we wanted to be closer to home. I am so glad we did! I highly recommend.
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.
