Slightly Disappointing <br>I have been taking my dogs to Ark Animal Clinic for over 10 years, and for years was happy. They could general fit me on short notice and their prices were pretty good. Then one time our bug guy was spraying in our back yard and my 100lb chocolate lab tried to jump through our sliding glass door. He cut up his feet/ legs pretty bad. There was blood everywhere! We rushed him to Ark and while they did treat him they later told us that he was unmanageable and asked us to not bring him back. Please tell me what dog is going to be calm and unaffected in that situation. my dogs have been treated by both Dr Scott Bradley and Dr Ann Bradley. Dr. Scott seems to charge more for the exact same services than his wife. One of my labs had an ear infection for over six months. Originally we were seeing Dr. Scott and nothing was helping with the ear infection. Then I switched to Dr Ann and noticed she was charging me less than her husband which I'm not complaining about, but I started wondering if they were just scamming me. I continued to see Dr Ann for a few months and the ear infection did not clear up. I expressed my concern that this infection had gone on for so long and that my dog had not felt good for MONTHS. Her solution was to give me 4 new medications to " give a try". I kind of felt like she was just going through a process of elimination with different medications which didn't instill much confidence. I decided to get a second opinion. In one visit to the new vet, she determined it was a yeast ear infection and prescribed the proper medication. One week later my dog's ear infection was gone. As <br>far as I know, The doctors and everyone in the office treats the animals well, but it <br>bothers me that they never treat my dog in the room. Every time they take my dogs in <br>the back for a long time, and I'm really not comfortable with it. I continue to take my dogs here for basic things like yearly shots, but when something is really wrong I don't feel comfortable bringing my pets here. I will say that the staff is always very friendly and there was also a time that Dr Ann pretty much saved my dog's tail. My dog had " happy tail". She was wagging her tail ALL THE TIME and would hit it on everything. Eventually the Tip of her tail broke open and we just couldn't get it to heal or even keep a bandage on it. Dr. Ann amputated about 2 inches off her tail and came up with a creative badge that we were able to keep on for a few hours at a time. Because she wags her tail so much it took a REALLY long time to get her tail to heal, but Dr Ann was patient and worked with us so that we didn't have to amputate her whole tail. Everyone should judge for themselves to determine if Ark is the right place for you and your pets. as I said I was very happy there for a number of years.
