Welcome To Animal Ark Animal Hospital

Animal Ark Animal Hospital is a state of the art facility that opened in 2002. We realize that time is valuable and addressed this issue when we designed our facility. We have a drive-thru prescription window and animal drop off door. This fully covered and brightly lit area allows our clients to pick up and /or drop off their pets on rainy days without ever leaving the car. This feature is especially convenient for parents with children in the car. We also welcome individuals with special needs to utilize the drop off door.

In consideration of clients waiting in our lobby area and as a convenience for clients who may have an emergency with their pet, members of our staff will be available at the drop off door to provide immediate transportation of the animal into the hospital.

If you have any questions about how we can care for your pet, please don’t hesitate to call us at (615) 778-0880. Thank you!
