Keeping your pet’s mouth healthy and clean sets the stage to prevent gingivitis, periodontal disease, and infections in the mouth. If left untreated, dental disease can lead to much larger problems in the body. Our dental cleanings are safely performed while your pet is under anesthesia. Full mouth Dental X-Rays, Ultrasonic cleaning, polishing and fluoride treatments are standard services.

What our clients say

I have never known such a caring group of people. It is always hard to loose a member of your family and fur babies are no exception. When my Cassie passed away I never expected to receive a card in the mail with his paw print and a lock of his fur. They are truly a special group of people and Dr.B. is one more good Christian man who loves his animals. God Bless them all.

Absolutely wonderful! Dr. Brinegar treated my ferret on the day before Christmas one year (when he became very ill suddenly) and I immediately transferred all of my animals over to Animal Ark because I was so impressed! He and his staff are wonderful with ALL of my animals and always take the time to answer questions and explain everything. I drive an hour to get to this office and I would never dream of changing! Excellent–just excellent.

Kelsey Blackburn

This is a beautiful facility with friendly staff and an AMAZING Vet- Dr. Brinegar! I have taken my birds there for years and I am always so impressed with how great he is at diagnosing any problems and how wonderful he is with all my animals. He saved my cockatiels life! Visited there today because my dog hurt his leg, and Dr. Brinegar took the time to talk to me and explain the injury. I will never go to another vet!
