Kenneth Brunson, DVM

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

I wanted to thank the staff on behalf of my family, especially Dr. Ken. We unfortunately had to put our senior dog to sleep last night and their professionalism and caring attitude helped with the difficult task. They listened as we told stories of her amazing 20+ year life and feats of wit, and gave us plenty of room to grieve and reassurance we were doing the right thing for her. The care they took with her, and with us, was comforting and they provided us with a sweet paw-print memento. Thank you for all you do each and every day.
– Gordon Issler

Jacob Mathias, DVM

Jacob Mathias, DVM

Doctor of Veterinary Medicine

Our family has taken our poodles to Tipp City Veterinary Hospital for more than 20 years. Originally, Dr. Jim cared for our pets, but since we got our last poodle almost 7 years ago, Dr. Jacob primarily cared for her. Tipp City Veterinary Hospital has provided excellent care for our pets over the years, but I especially want to compliment and recognize Dr. Jacob and the staff who provided beyond exceptional care for our most recent poodle who had a number of extensive medical issues. For the last several years of our poodle’s life we were generally in at least monthly sometimes weekly or even more than once a week. Dr. Jacob did an excellent job treating our poodle and referring us to specialists as needed, and I am sure without his care and guidance our poodle would not have been able to live as long as she lived. We will always be loyal clients and highly recommend Tipp City Veterinary Hospital. They are wonderful, caring professionals whose love of animals is obvious.
– Bill Beagle

Team Leader, Registered Veterinary Technician

Jessica started at TCVH in October of 2011. She began in our lodging department and eventually transferred to our medical department, where she has since gained the title of Certified Veterinary Technician. Jessica has three pets at home: two cats named Benzy and Boo Boo and a wild husky named Kahlua. She is hoping to get another husky in the near future. When not working, Jessica likes to relax by going on long walks with her dog, spending time outdoors, catching up with friends and even a round or two of Bingo with her Mom.

The most enjoyable part of the job for Jessica is interacting with the pets she sees and getting to know the owners, even if for a short period of time. Every animal holds a special place in her heart and she treats all of the pets she works with as if they were one of her own. She especially enjoys the things she is able to do as a Veterinary Technician and dental cleanings are her favorite.
