About us

Lab 3

The Ark Veterinary Practice is a friendly and caring veterinary practice, situated in the heart of Fleet, and has been proudly serving the local area since 1954. We pride ourselves on providing a first rate service to pets and their owners, thanks to our excellent facilities and highly trained staff .The surgery has ample parking facilities on-site and also offers a pet transport service (in our practice van) for clients who have difficulty getting their pets to the surgery.

The Ark has been inspected and accredited by a team from the RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons). We are a tier 2 veterinary practice. For more information on the RCVS Practice Standards Scheme please their website.

The Ark opened its doors on the current site, in Connaught Road, in February 2002, having taken over a doctor’s surgery. Previously, the practice was located on Upper Street in Fleet. Recently owned by Mike Bundy (who took over from Mr Cleverly and Mr Avery), the practice then became part of the CVS Group plc in 2008.

We are able to deal with a wide range of small animal cases both medical and surgical. Our large array of on-site facilities means that we can diagnose most conditions within practice. We also have access to a range of diagnostic equipment and referral services within other CVS branches.

At Ark Veterinary Practice we try to offer a complete service to ensure the best possible care for your pets, whilst ensuring we look after your needs as well. In fact, in a recent customer survey (February 2015), an astonishing 90% of our clients gave us 9/10 or 10/10 when asked to rate their satisfaction with the practice and the service they received.

Burnside Rehabilitation Centre also operates within our premises and offers hydrotherapy, massage and physiotherapy to treat a wide range of conditions.
