The entire staff is friendly, professional and genuinely care about the animals and their needs. They provide a clean environment, free of clutter. The animals being boarded seem comfortable and safe. The dogs are separated from the cats.The equipment is up-to-date. They offer payment options, and have an app! WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR?

This was my first visit and I had a sick little dog who needed to be seen on a Sunday, when his normal vet is closed. Dr. Jake took really good care of him and was very understanding when my dog tried to eat him. The women running the front counter were extremely kind and friendly and treated us like we’ve been coming there for years. Definitely a great experience and my dog is feeling so much better!

My Pomeranian pup broke his hind leg and no vet in my area was confident in their ability to do the surgery required to help him. I stumble across Tipp City Veterinary Hospital on google and called them, they got my baby in ASAP and after taking new xrays proceeded with the surgery. They did it that same day almost immediately and he was back home the same night. They were very helpful, friendly and informative. I highly recommend them for anything you may need for your pet and they’re prices are reasonable too.

I had to have my 15 year old dog put down on a Saturday afternoon. They were not my regular vet, but my vet had closed at noon and I didn't feel I could wait until Monday. They scheduled a time for me to come in and when we arrived they had a room ready so we did not have to sit in the waiting room. The staff was so kind and caring. They brought a small plate with all kinds of little goodies for my beloved dog. After she passed they made a clay foot print on clay with her name and heart on it. They were so kind to bring her to my car and they hugged me and cried with me and told me how sorrythey were for my loss. They also sent a beautiful card signed by the staff with caring messages. I would recommend them to anyone. I was so impressed and forever grateful for being so kind during my loss.
