Our Veterinary Services
Great pet grooming in a relaxed pet grooming salon. Keeping your pet well-groomed is really important for their health - especially dog grooming in the summer months to keep them cool and make tick management easier. Plus, who doesn't love a good pampering! Our groomer Julie has over 15 years of experience in dog grooming, and also offers a cat grooming service under sedation by appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
In the event of a pet emergency, the emergency veterinarian treatment provided by the team at the Ark will minimise stress and further trauma to your pet and administer the appropriate care as fast as possible. We understand how important your pet is to you, and how stressful it can be when they need emergency vet care. There is no need to book an appointment in an emergency situation, just bring your pet straight to the clinic.
Dog and cat dental care as well as pet dental health is crucial for their wellbeing and quality of life. Unfortunately, gum disease affects over 80% of dogs and cats. Untreated, it can cause bad breath as well as pain for your pet. Going to the dentist is just as important as going to the doctor. The team at the Ark recognises this and are trained to assess and treat your pet's dental health to keep them healthy and happy. We also offer a complimentary dental check.
It can be hard to have a great holiday if you're worried about your dog or cat, and whether they are safe. The Ark can help with both dog and cat boarding services. We have a luxurious tri-level cattery to accommodate cats for long and short term stays where they are cared for (and cuddled by!) our team of veterinary nurses. We also make dropping your dog at the kennels easily, as the Ark is a drop-off point for Meadowmist, a premium dog boarding facility.
Parasites like fleas and ticks can pose significant health concerns for your cat or dog. Fleas make life itchy and uncomfortable for both you and your pet. Australia is home to the paralysis tick, which is life-threatening in both cats and dogs. Year-long tick prevention is imperative, and this treatment combined with vaccinations can help your pet life a comfortable and parasite free life. Book an appointment online today to discuss the best prevention options.
The best approach to pet care and keeping your furry friend healthy is prevention of major health conditions. At the Ark we are dedicated to your pet's care and offer complimentary health checks to quickly identify any healthy concerns. This way we can make sure your pet is and stays healthy, and provide you with the best advice for them. You can book an appointment online or call us on 9416 130 to talk to one of our friendly nurses.
As cute as puppies and kittens are, we know that you don’t want your pet having a litter every year! Pet desexing is also important in behavioural management in some pets and can reduce the risk of diseases such as ovarian cancer. At the ark we offer pet desexing operations under general anaesthetic for dogs, cats and rabbits.
The team at the ark is highly experienced, ensuring that your pet experiences minimal discomfort and a fast recovery.
We can't stress enough how important it is to get vaccinations for your puppy and kitten, and keep your dog and cat vaccinations up to date. Vaccinations prevent serious infectious diseases both in your pet and other animals in the community. The Ark offers vaccinations against serious diseases in dogs, cats and rabbits, which are safe and are not linked to any adverse health effects.
