Great clean facility, super friendly staff! Dr Joel was really nice, attentive and knowledgeable! Love that they have Sunday hours and that they see small pets like our guinea pig. They took great care of her and were able to get us a Sunday appointment right before closing on Saturday. Would recommend and go back.

I really appreciated the time the doctor spent with us. Dr Jacob was very very thorough and did not rush us out. He answered all my questions and concerns and then some. I learned more from him in an hour than I did from our previous vet over the last 7 years. We decided to switch vets because we wanted to be closer to home. I am so glad we did! I highly recommend.

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.
