Max Powers is a six year old Dachshund mix diagnosed in December with Intervertebral Disc Disease. His symptoms started out with limitations in mobility, lethargy and pain. Very quickly, his symptoms deteriorated and he was unable to walk and was experiencing a significant amount of pain. Dr. Jacob quickly diagnosed him with IVDD after a radiograph showed narrowing space and increased opacity in his spinal cord. Max was put on pain medications, steroids, strict cage rest to help the muscles tighten, and a round of laser therapy.
Unfortunately, after starting the medications, Max showed no signs of improvement. A surgical procedure had been recommended and Dr. Jim took on the task of performing a Dorsal Laminectomy to help relieve the compression on his spine. Max’s procedure was performed on January 3rd. The following video was taken January, 10th, just one week after his surgery.
Max’s owner just called today to say that he is walking on his own and is able to go outside to go potty and find his food in the kitchen. She still uses the sling for his safety, but he is recovering at a remarkable speed. From the diagnosis, treatment and surgical intervention, Max has been a little medical miracle for us and we are all so happy that he is doing so well. We think Max Powers is a pretty appropriate name for this remarkable little guy!
Clean, friendly and I was immediately welcomed. All interactions with "Pumpkin" were sincere and loving . All seem to enjoy their jobs. Sensitive to my pet's needs. First time boarding at 5 years old. Did well.
I cant say enough praise over this practice. Dr. Jacob and ALL the staff demonstrate true compassion towards animals as well to those who own them. I have witnessed time and time again how each staff member blesses every person and/or fur baby who enters their doors. I have experienced the power of knowledge, expertise and (most importantly) kindness from Dr. Jacob as he helped walk me through an emotional time when Nikita was really sick. They love on my girl like she was their own- every encounter. I keep coming back and referring others to see themselves why I just love this place.
We were extremely happy with our experience at Tipp City Veterinary Hospital. They were able to get us in on a Sunday, when our dog was very sick and needed to be seen that day. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Dr. Ken was wonderful! He was gentle, but thorough when he examined our dog. He diagnosed the problem and patiently answered all our questions. His treatment was effective and our dog was feeling much better within 24 hours. We would definitely recommend Tipp City Veterinary Hospital.
I have been taking my pitbull to Tipp veterinary hospital for 7 years and without fail every time we have walked in, we have been treated like family and my dog has been treated like royalty! Several times my dog has turned up missing and has been tracked back to the Tipp Veterinarian Hospital and they have kept her until I could be reached. They've never charged me for this and they've never scolded me. The facility is always very clean with no smell and Everyone is always extremely professional. With that being said they will take their professional caps off to love on my dog and be silly and make her feel like she's the only dog in the world! When you watch any of the doctors and all of the staff you know they are doing what they love and what they've been called to do. They've always taken such good care of my dog's health. And one thing that I really like is I don't feel like they judge and I don't feel like they push anything on me that I don't need or want.
