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 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.
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 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.
Let me start with we are not from Tipp City, we are not even from Ohio. We drive a semi transporting expedited freight and delivered less than a mile from the clinic. My almost 12 yr old boy Ticket had a nasty cough and definitely was not himself. We were there before opening hours this morning. Even under this pandemic contagious possibilities they seen my Ticket. He had his initial exam, then xrays, and then ultrasound. Congestive heart failure are scary words. I believe my boys life was saved today. I cannot say enough about this clinic ❤❤❤. What they don't know is he's my partner we have competed together in dog sports including nationally. We have 9 titles never placing less than 3rd. We have been through so much together.. I did all his training from the time I adopted him from the breeder at 18 months old. He was not doing well as show dog. He is my service dog retired at 9 years but we are still together every day.
