Facility Dog

Why choose ARC for your dog?

ARC is staffed with veterinary specialists/consultants in multiple disciplines. As in human medicine, veterinary specialists must undergo extensive training beyond that of the basic veterinary degree. This allows them to provide advanced veterinary care in their discipline, that complements the services provided by your local vet.

Sometimes an animal’s problems are complex and would benefit from input from more than one clinician. If this is the case with your dog then both the medical and surgical specialists/consultants will collaborate to create the most appropriate treatment plan. At ARC this bespoke approach is provided at no extra cost.
