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!
