Senior Pet Care

older
We have a genuine affection for our older pets. We understand that they have special needs as they age. The problem is that often people attribute a lack of energy, alertness, and mobility problems to aging, when sometimes these are disease processes that can be reversed. We are constantly finding treatable conditions in our older patients that respond very rapidly to medications or other treatment modalities.

Dental Needs

It is surprising the number of cats and dogs in whose mouths we find significant pathology that is causing unknown pain. Dental problems in pets commonly lead to heart conditions. This is because of the bacteria in their mouths coursing through the blood and infecting the heart valves. Preventive dental care is one of the most significant life extenders for our older pets! Did you know that older wild cats and wolves die more from dental disease more than any other cause?

K-laser

We have recently added K-laser to our treatment options. This is a totally non-invasive, non-painful way of helping eliminate both chronic and acute pain in pets. It is very affordable and our clients enjoy being right there with their pets to help with the treatment. The sessions average 6 minutes per site.

Regenerative Medicine

We use regenerative medicine for young and older pets. The use of stem cells in degenerative arthritis, tendon, and joint problems has been a great addition to our practice. All of our doctors are credentialed for using stem cells. We have seen the majority of our stem cell cases respond extremely well.

Your Pet’s Senior Profile

Often, our older population has hidden disease that can be helped if detected early. We recommend a senior profile. The senior profile includes lab work and x-rays to give our doctors a more complete picture of your friend’s condition.

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.

I revisited Tipp Vet after a long stint with my previous vet that ended in me just not feeling comfortable with the level of care my two small breeds were receiving. I definitely don’t feel this way here. They are exceptionally understanding and helpful with all of my concerns, and Dr. Ken even provided me with his email once so that he could help me further understand some test results he had given me. They are very understanding with my small adopted dog that needs to be muzzled when I bring him to them. They work very slowly with him during his visits and keep me updated on his progress there. I can’t recommend them enough!

The staff were very helpful in getting our girl Precious in after extreme vomiting and diarrhea. And also, they have been FANTASTIC on following up on checking to see how she is doing. Thank you so much. It means a lot when you LOVE our baby as much as we do🧡🐕
