Welcome to Ark Animal Hospital

At Ark Animal Hospital we take pride in providing honest, compassionate, and owner appropriate medical care for dogs and cats. Our recommendations to clients regarding the care of their pets has always been to offer the best possible options with the realization that some clients' financial situations may not allow them to afford all services and treatments recommended. This understanding gives us the opportunity to promote appropriate treatments that maintain the pet’s health while strengthening the client-patient-veterinarian bond.
Ark Animal Hospital was originated in 1984 by Dr. John Hetzler. In 2008, Dr. Lianne Chu joined Dr. Hetzler as an associate veterinarian and in 2015 she took over as the owner. She has continued with Dr. Hetzler’s vision in forming a veterinary practice utilizing the highest quality of medicine while still considering all variables involved.

At Ark Animal Hospital, the staff, clients and patients are all a part of what we consider the Ark family. We make all efforts to promote positive relationships with our clients and patients and are constantly working to build client’s trust in the information and advice the staff provides.

As we move forward, we will strive to discover advancements in medical care for animal patients in order to alleviate their pain and suffering, to provide better diagnostic information and treatment options, and to enhance the bond pet owners have with their pets. This allows us, as a veterinary team, to maintain optimal health and well-being for the patients in our care that is affordable and valuable for their owners.

Pet Examinations

Our pets are a part of our family, and every responsible owner wants to ensure that their pets are in the very best of health. Your pet may not be able to tell you what is wrong, but our examinations aim to discover the source of any problem, or indeed prevent them before they arise.
