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!

Once I knew I needed to change vets after a bad experience with helping my cat at the end of her life I found Tipp City Vet and i have been thankful ever since. When my rescue kitty was lethargic and hot to the touch they got her right in, she had spend a few days in the hospital and they called to keep me updated and let me go in and spend quality time with her and I could tell they were taking great care of her. It has been a couple of years since then and she is doing great and the staff is always welcoming and the Drs give out great advice and always gives options which I appreciate. They are in the midst of a remodel and expanding their daycare and exam areas. It is really great to see they are growing in the community and always have the patients and parents best interests. I have never had any bad service here and highly recommend them.

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🧡🐕

I was looking for a new vet and a friend recommended this place. I usually like "homier" places, but all of the staff were so nice and I absolutely loved the vet. They gave options without pushing to do the most expensive thing... a HUGE plus!! Got a call the next day on our doggy's blood tests.
