We are widely recognised as leaders in the treatment of pets and wildlife in the region, with extensive skills and experience in animal care and treatment. We are versatile and adaptable, able to treat any animal brought to us.

We are passionate about caring for our pets and their owners. An unwell pet is stress enough, we always do our best to ensure that you feel safe and supported and cared for in all your interactions with The Ark Vet. We are honest and reliable; there are no hidden charges, and our facilities are second to none in the region.
