First off, do not trust the reviews for Ark Veterinary that you see on their Facebook page. They delete and block any review that is unfavorable to their business.Now, I can only speak for myself but seriously, do not take your animal to Ark's Veterinary in Shelby Township. Or do so at your pet's risk. After sinking nearly $400 in tests for my very ill cat, the doctor sent me home with a can of food. That was it. The next day she calls and says she wants to run ANOTHER $350 worth of tests, and I decide to pay $50 for the few meds that she recommends instead.Despite the fact that my cat's oxygen was extremely low (the doctor's assistant nurse just discredited the reading on the monitor because "that can't be right"); despite the fact that his liver looked bad according to the tests; despite the fact that his nose was discolored (to which I specifically pointed it out to the doctor, but to no interested response); despite the fact that I had the vet whom I had previously gone to, i.e. the PET DOCTOR, fax all of my cat's previous medical history; despite everything, the incompetent doctor at Ark Veterinary misdiagnosed and mistreated my cat. Less than 24 hours afterwards from receiving the meds and a couple of syringes to force food and aluminum hydroxide down his throat, my cat's nose was turning purple.I decided instead to take him back to the PET DOCTOR. There, they immediately gasped at my cat's condition and put him on oxygen. The color of his nose began to return. He would have died within hours from suffocation because of the negligence and ineptitude of Ark. Then they gave him a couple of shots and showed me the correct way to feed him (placing food on my finger and rubbing it on the upper mouth and not forcing it in with a syringe). For the first time in nearly a week my cat's tail was wagging, and, as you can imagine, the vet at the Pet Doctor was flabbergasted at the incompetence of the work done by Ark Veterinary. He wanted their info. He gave me medicine for my cat's liver and told me to discard the crap I had just paid over $50 the day prior for. Mind you, he did all of this just by looking at paper work, and to top it off, charged me only $100.The doctor at Ark should be held accountable. She nearly killed my cat and nearly charged me over $700 to do so, over half of which I paid and will probably not get back. Although I should. I hope your experience will not be as equally appalling and - had I just waited a few more hours - fatal to your pet.

I took my 7 year old unfriendly female cat for a physical today. I am new to the area, and I chose VCA because they were the most patient with my qu…
I have been going to Ark for 15 years or so and I must say I never felt I was overcharged. I have and always will take every animal I own here. The staff is knowledgeable and caring to your pets needs. I have had check ups where they did not even charge me, also when we had to put our cat and dog down they didn't charge me there either. The relationship they establish between them and your pet is outstanding, they care for your animal as if it were their own. They call after hours to check up and are always available to help. If you care for your animal then this is definitely the place for you to take them. I am not a family member and do not work there. I simply believe they are the best around.
