Welcome to the practice who treats your pet like one of the family!
Ark Veterinary Clinics were founded in 1994 and have been serving the local community ever since.
We treat all small animal and exotic pets and have two vets with extensive experience and knowledge of all exotic species we are happy to see all your reptiles, birds and small mammals. We look forward to welcoming you to the practice but ask that you call prior to your first appointment to ensure we have the most appropriate vet available to treat your pet. There is ample parking behind the practice.
Madonna is the Clinical Lead for the Selective Exotics Rotation for the Final year vet students from Glasgow Vet School. Final year students who are particularly interested in Exotics work in the clinic with Madonna, Krissy and our fantastic team for a three week rotation. The practice is really proud of being a key component of training the next generation of exotic vets to care for our furry, feathery, and scaley members of our family!
***Unfortunately due to staff shortages, the practice will be fully closed on the Bank Holidays of Monday 10th April, and Monday 1st of May. Should you require emergency veterinary care during these days then the emergency veterinary services should contacted as per our page***
We are delighted to announce that our very own Madonna Livingstone has recently won not just one but two awards! Madonna was named the UK Rabbit Vet of the Year 2022 on the 6th December then on the 7th December was awarded the External Lecturer of the Year 2022 as nominated by the students of Glasgow vet school! We are so proud that her hard work has been recognized in this way, congratulations Madonna!
26/01/2021 ***DUE TO THE HUGE NUMBER OF MISSED APPOINTMENTS INCLUDING SEVERAL DOUBLE APPOINTMENTS, AND GIVEN THE FACT THAT OUR APPOINTMENTS ARE VERY MUCH IN DEMAND. WE HAVE HAD TO MAKE THE DECISION THAT ANY APPOINTMENT THAT IS NOT CANCELLED AND THEN MISSED WILL RESULT IN A £15 CHARGE BEING ADDED TO YOUR ACCOUNT.***
BEING SHORT STAFFED AND EXPERIENCING AN OVERWHELMING INFLUX OF EMERGENCY CASES HAD LEAD TO US HAVING TO INCREASE THE REQUEST TIME TO 72 HOURS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS. THE VETS HAVE TO CHECK EVERY SINGLE DRUG TO ENSURE THE CORRECT ONE HAS BEEN DISPENSED AND AT THE CORRECT DOSE. THIS IS TIME CONSUMING BUT ADDS A LAYER OF PROTECTION AGAINST HUMAN ERROR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED PATIENCE AND SUPPORT – WE REALLY ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE AMAZING CLILENTS!
