What our clients say…

  • I have been taking my pets to Animal Ark for over 10 years and can say without reservation that Dr. Paula and her team are the best I have ever seen. The clinical care is exceptional and delivered with expertise and compassion. The customer service is outstanding. They truly make you and your pets feel like part of their "family." Dr. Paula takes the time to really listen, to get to know you and your pet(s), and from that build a true relationship that will last for years. I recommend without reservation, the team at Animal Ark to all pet owners who want the very best veterinary care for their "furry babies!"
  • Dr Paula is the best- hands down. She has been our Veterinarian for almost 20 years. She is incredibly knowledgeable and if she needs to reach out to a specialist in the field she has the network to do so to get the “answers” - she leaves no rock unturned. Our pets all love her and we do too.
  • This place was amazing and one of the few in town that would treat our elderly guinea pig. Very friendly office and knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend!
  • Cheri and I had to put our beloved Jack down yesterday. It's the hardest day for a pet owner but the staff here was very compassionate. We couldn't imagine a more caring and loving doctor and staff to care for our pet during his final moments.
  • Such an awesome staff!! You can tell they truly care. Highly recommend this place. They made me and my pup feel like family from day one!!
