For years, we have wanted to set up a not-for-profit foundation for animal care but have just not been able to get around to it. We finally have a solution: The Veterinary Care Foundation! Now our owners and friends can donate tax-deductible gifts to the foundation. Designate Tipp City Veterinary Hospital and the money is available to help worthy pets. We want to give the very best care available but unfortunately, that isn’t always available. These funds will help our Good Samaritan cases, assist pet owners in financial crisis, and help with service animals (police, fire and seeing eye dogs). To learn more about the Veterinary Care Foundation, how it is helping pets around the country and to donate to the foundation in your pet’s name, please visit their website. -Dr. Jim
“The Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that helps veterinary practices fund their discounted and no – charge cases.
Upon joining VCF, a fund is established in the practice’s name under the VCF charitable umbrella.This enables clients and the general public to make tax-deductible gifts through the Foundation which will support the practice’s charitable endeavors.
100% of all funds donated to a practice’s charitable fund go directly to that practice – all Foundation operating expenses are met by membership dues paid by veterinarians.”
Tipp City Veterinary Hospital is happy to announce a new product that we think will help you save time, money and a bit of hassle when it comes to giving your dog flea & tick medication.
Bravecto is a chewable tablet for the treatment and prevention of fleas and ticks. The great thing about Bravecto is that it only needs to be given EVERY THREE MONTHS! That means that four chewable tablets will last you a full year. Bravecto is the first FDA and veterinary-approved chewable tablet for the prevention of not only fleas, but the three most common types of ticks: the black-legged tick, American dog-tick and brown dog-tick. It is even safe for pregnant and lactating females.
The Doctors at TCVH are very excited to bring this product on board. Having to only give a single chewable tablet for three months of flea and tick prevention helps pets stay safe and protected. We all know that life can be hectic and sometimes get the better of us. It’s hard to remember to give medication every month and this product makes things a bit easier. When you pair Bravecto with our other great product, ProHeart, you only have to think about these medications four times a year. If you missed our post on ProHeart, a six-month injectable heartworm preventative, check it out HERE.
We have a really great rebate going on currently. When you buy your first two tablets of Bravecto (remember-that is six months of prevention) you will receive a $50 rebate in the mail. You are essentially getting paid for your first dose of the medication.
We think you are going to love this medication and the ease of giving it to your pet. If you have any questions about this new product, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 937-667-8489. You can also check out Bravecto’s Website for more information.
Summertime is here and the weather is HOT! Here are some fun treats you can make for your pets to get them through these hot summer months:
These treats are a great way to add fruits and veggies to your pet’s diet in the hot summer months. Simply place cut up apples, carrots, green beans, cantaloupe, even spinach in ice cube trays and fill with low-sodium chicken broth and freeze. You can also blend these ingredients together to liquefy and freeze in ice cube trays or mini-muffin tins. Pureed pumpkin is another great treat for dogs. It helps regulate the gut and keeps dogs regular.
This is a great way to keep your pet’s busy and cool this summer. You can use low-sodium chicken broth and include your pet’s favorite toys (or buy some new ones!)and yummy treats like carrots, green beans, etc. Simply fill a bucket or metal dog bowl with the broth and items submerged and freeze until solid. This will keep your best buddy happy for hours at a time!
One of the easiest treats for dogs is to simply purchase a Kong toy (you can buy them at our hospital) and stuff it with peanut butter and freeze it. The kong is a great chew toy and comes in different strengths for even the toughest chewers. When you freeze it with peanut butter in it, it makes the treat last even longer!
This recipe is courtesy of Todays Mama. These treats consist of yogurt, peanut butter, bananas and honey. They are healthy and delicious for your pet and are a great training treat for the summer. These treats are even good for humans, if you want to share!
Annie, my Golden Retriever Mix, is not a patient there, but got both her Flu vaccines at Tipp City Vet.
The First one, was at their drive up clinic and the second one at their office.
Both were fantastic experiences! The staff (Dr Jim Mathias, the Vet Techs, and Front office) were all super friendly, professional, and great with Annie! And they were very accommodating too, as I had to change my appointment a few times, in order to fit my ever changing schedule.
If I didn’t already have a vet that I love, and am very loyal to; I would definitely make the 30 minute drive to their office!
Always happy with the staff. Lots of space so the pets can have their own space. The most honest Dr.s ever. These people truly care, they aren’t just trying to make money off of you. They want what’s best for your pet.
Nice and knowledgeable staff. They were extremely patient with our crazy cat and didn't try to just strong-arm her like other offices did.
