Highly recommend!!!
Annie, my Golden Retriever Mix, is not a patient there, but got both her Flu vaccines at Tipp City Vet.
The First one, was at their drive up clinic and the second one at their office.
Both were fantastic experiences! The staff (Dr Jim Mathias, the Vet Techs, and Front office) were all super friendly, professional, and great with Annie! And they were very accommodating too, as I had to change my appointment a few times, in order to fit my ever changing schedule.
If I didn’t already have a vet that I love, and am very loyal to; I would definitely make the 30 minute drive to their office!

I really like this place. The staff is always really friendly and willing to help with any questions or concerns I have. I usually see Dr. Ken and he treats my cats nice even if my cats don't lol. I just had to take one cat in due to constipation twice in a year. We got out in roughly an hour and they gave me a list of things to try without spending a lot of money.

Always happy with the staff. Lots of space so the pets can have their own space. The most honest Dr.s ever. These people truly care, they aren’t just trying to make money off of you. They want what’s best for your pet.
