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.

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!

Cannot say enough about Dr. Mathias and his whole team of professionals! Years ago I had a sick cat that other vets said they couldn't save. I brought him to Dr. Mathias and he was able to treat him. He lived another happy and healthy 10 yrs! I now have a dog and live south of town, but still make the trip to Tipp City, as I wouldn't trust anyone else with her care!
