How to Find the Best Cat Veterinarian



cat veterinarianNo matter what kind of pets one has, it’s important to be comfortable when choosing a veterinarian. The rapport between cat veterinarian and client is crucial for the pet to receive good treatment, and it’s important for owners to be well-informed before choosing a clinic and doctor.

Particularly for cat owners, communication is critical. These tough predators can be tricky about hiding their symptoms of illness, so they very often seem untouchable and healthy on the surface, but may be experiencing changes and discomfort internally. It’s important to ask a veterinarian about how best to plan preventative health care and regular examinations for cats, because while cats certainly won’t admit it, they do need routine checkups just like dogs and people. Many of our clients find that even if their cat is not sick, they could benefit from well care treatments like cat declawing, behavior modification/training, or cat boarding during a summer vacation.

An ideal choice for a cat veterinarian is one who the owner is comfortable approaching, has extensive practice with felines, and has exposure to working with a broad variety of species for contextual knowledge. Cats experience an array of health complications that can be very different from those affecting dogs and other species, and the owner’s keen observations are important for veterinarians to use when interpreting cat clues, so a good veterinarian will encourage this dialogue.

The staff at Tipp City Veterinary Hospital are pleased to have served the eclectic Miami Valley client and patient population for over thirty years. Our clinic sees dogs, cats, birds, and reptiles, but the well-rounded staff also treat large animals and exotic species. Clients travel from Indianapolis to Columbus, Toledo to Cincinnati, and beyond, for the experienced quality of care recieved here. Dr. Jim, and his well-trained staff of Dr. Susan, Dr. Jacob, and Dr. Nick, are all exceptional choices for your finicky felines or any other pet. Finding a cat doctor that is welcoming, attentive and experienced is really the goal for your cat.

Tipp City offers regular appointments with an accommodating schedule, and can also assist with after-hours emergencies. The hospital features state-of-the-art diagnostics and our staff have varying focuses in specialty fields, like internal medicine and cardiology, allowing our team to provide comprehensive care. We also offer boarding, to ensure pets enjoy the safest possible stay. Clients can rely on this well-equipped hospital for their pets’ every need.

Pet owners often hesitate to ask a veterinarian about their concerns, but a caring hospital will always welcome questions, and Tipp City is happy to assist with yours.

  1. We recently got a cat and we really want to make sure that we find a good vet for them. I agree that any vet should be very comfortable to approach. They should be open and easy to talk to so that it’s easier to talk to them about any problems with our pet. Thanks for the tips!

  2. You made a good point when you said to choose a cat veterinarian that has extensive practice with felines. It is recommended that you look for a vet who has been practicing his profession for many years and has treated multiple cats (and animals as a whole) with various illnesses. This means that he is credible and highly qualified. If I were to look for the right vet for my cat, I would make sure to keep this in mind. Thanks.

  3. I wanted to thank you for this advice for finding a good cat veterinarian. I’m glad that you mentioned you should find someone that has been exposed to working with a variety of species. This sounds useful especially if their experience with animals and cats has made them well informed.

Honestly they were wonderful, they were very nice and caring and took very good care of my baby. They also made sure I understood what was going on. Even after everything they let me call and answered any questions or concerns that I had until I felt better as well.

Highly recommend!!!
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.

I really like this place. The staff is always really friendly and willing to help with any questions or concerns I have. I usually see Dr. Ken and he treats my cats nice even if my cats don't lol. I just had to take one cat in due to constipation twice in a year. We got out in roughly an hour and they gave me a list of things to try without spending a lot of money.
