“You stay with what is good”

I have been a client of Ark House Vets for about 16 years approx. Kate (who now owns the practice) was just starting out on her career and was such a professional. She gave us many more years with 2 of our dogs by detecting tumours in their early stages (Bonnie & Poppy). She has gone on to lead a great team at Ark House not only the vets but her support staff.

It is not just medical they provide - they will help and support you in many other areas. For example the puppy socialising club is fantastic. Many other things are provided for free as in arthritis, dental, kidney check ups. They can help you with behaviour problems.

I would not have stayed with them for so many years if their service was not A1 as my dogs mean the world to me.

“Caring and professional.”

fortunately I don't need to go often - but when I do ark
House are fantastic. Always keen and able to offer advice on the phone, some wonderful vets and staff and utterly professional at all times.
Prescriptions can be pricey - but isn't that all vets! You can always research for long standing meds on line as I did with my previous dog.

Their service when we sadly had to euthanase our dog was fabulous. We were treated with respect and the utmost dignity.

our current pooch is looked after by them as well - faultless service.

“Best vets around”

Lovely, helpful staff that are always willing to help and show great respect towards both pet and owner. All of my visits have been both punctual and informative, with vets often going above and beyond to offer advise and tips.

Easily the best vets I have ever had any dealings with and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for high quality pet care.

“Our Vets since 1969 - 4 Labrador”

The Practice has been our vets since Mr Spencer in 1969. It has always ben a training practice, which is good as I have confidence that they are up to date with all things new.

I have seen first hand how veterinary care has improved since my first labrador way back in 1969. Through the changes the staff at Ark House have always gone the extra mile for our furries. In particular the care of my old Westie Sandy who had terrible skin problems with his ears. They contacted a specialist vet for advice, and for months we made daily visits for treatment which cleared up a significant problem.

They also did an excellent job with my Labrador's arthritis, he had acupuncture at the surgery and with the right meds Rory was back to running at full speed again. Vastly improving his quality of life.

They also did a fantastic job with Archie, our Westie in residence. He had an awful time when he was little, he couldn't sleep, was agitated, barked at the slightest noise, we had complaints about him from s neighbour. We though it was behavioural, training. The staff at Ark House were brilliant with him, I had got to the point that it may be the kindest thing for him to do the deed! But not until I had tried everything I could. On advice from Debbie I started to film him, and kept a diary. This led to a suggestion that something was very wrong medically, not his behaving badly. This led to a referral to Jon Bowen at the doggie hospital. It was a form of epilepsy, he was too frightened to sleep. That was 6 years ago, and now he is a happy Westie with his life back. I can't thank the staff enough for there perseverance in getting to the heart of what was wrong with him.

All the staff at Ark House Vets have been brilliant over the years.

“Wonderful vets clinic”

We have been with Ark House for years and have always found the staff to be friendly and professional. The Paws Club is great as we often have had to take our furry babies in for their unexpected visits. When our beloved Belle got sick, they treated her with kindness and respect, and dealt with our situation with compassion and professionalism.

“Amazing Practice. ”

We have used Ark House Vets for over 30 years and would never go any where else. They treat you with kindness and respect and as well as caring for your pet they care for you too. There is always a cheerful voice at the other end of the phone and nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new vet.

“Brilliant!”

Ark house are an amazing vets practice. I have 2 dogs, one of whom is a very nervous collie who is terrified of going to the vet (he had a nasty accident when he was young), and he used to be a real handful at the vets. We now see the same get every year (the amazing Adele!) and she has made real progress with him. He now tolerates his yearly jabs and even jumped up for a cuddle after this years visit.

All the staff are helpful, friendly, kind and really knowledgable and its a real credit to the practice that most of the vets have been there for years.

The waiting room and treatment rooms are always lovely and clean and you never get hit with any overwhelming smells of disinfectant. Everything just smells fresh. The waiting room is modern and relaxed with lots to look at and I love the pictures of the staff and their own pets.

Most importantly the service and treatment is second to none. They have a great range of services on offer and seem to plow money back into the latest training and equipment. They never seem to hide anything (they have a yearly open day so you can go along and see what goes on behind the scene).

To sum it up I love ark house! I adore my dogs and want the best for them and I couldn't ask for any more from ark house. They are the best!

“Poppy”

My name is Poppy and unfortunately I've needed the vets quite a lot since I was very young. I used to hate going to the vets and was extremely scared of what they could do to me so I didn't let them close to me but thanks to desensitisation I now really enjoy going there! I get cuddles and treats and I give loads of lickies in return! The whole team help me all the time to make sure I am happy and comfortable. A year ago I was attacked in our local park and once again I was so happy that Ark House Vets could provide me with the specialist care I needed and thanks to their behaviourist and all the staff (as everybody got involved in my rehab one way or the other) I am now happy again and getting more self confident every day. Ark House vets care so much about me and my well being, it's beyond belief! I can only recommend Ark House Vets because they are friendly, caring and have animals welfare at heart and they are really nice with my Mummy as well! There should be more vets, nurses and receptionists like the ones who work at Ark House Vets because they are just brilliant!

“Amazing ongoing support”

Unfortunatly both our young cats have had serious illnesses in the past year. Ark house have been amazing through both cats illnesses. They continue to help us now even though both cats are fine they will happily do a quick once over for us if we have any concerns. No matter how small the problem. I cannot recommend them enough and genuinely think without their help we would not have 2 cats now.

I never ask to see a certain vet as I have complete confidence in all of them. This confidence starts at the reception where the staff are all knowledgeable and helpful. I am always made to feel important.
