AAHA Certified Veterinarian Located in Liberty and Kansas City, MO

We are a locally-owned non-corporate AAHA certified animal hospital located in both Liberty and Kansas City, MO.

Does the wag of a tail, the rub of fur on your leg or a soothing purr in your ear make your day better? We think it does and that’s why we are here. Sharing the love you feel because of your pet is why we are motivated to go the extra mile. We start by listening to you tell us about your pet. Next is a soft caress and a treat for your best friend.

Over 5,000 Liberty and Kansas City Families prefer our thorough examinations and not feeling rushed through visits. You can join them and feel safe knowing that Ark is the only AAHA certified veterinarian in Liberty, meaning we are among the top 15 percent of hospitals with the skills, training and equipment to meet AAHA requirements.

You also don’t have to let finances get in the way of providing the best care for your loved ones. We are happy to work with CareCredit for interest-free monthly payment plans or pet insurance through Petplan so you can afford the care your best friend needs.

We offer a wide variety of services, from preventive care to specialty care, surgery, and emergency care. We commonly see referrals for rehabilitation and pain consultations. Did you know we are the only hospital certified in rehabilitation and as a pain practitioner in the KC metro? For a secure place to stay, we also offer a resort boarding facility for dogs and cats.

To give you the attention you deserve, we do limit appointments; call 816-781-4595 now to reserve your time, or request an appointment online! We look forward to making a new friend soon.

What does it mean to be AAHA-certified?

We are proud to be an AAHA-accredited hospital, a title only 12% of animal hospitals in the US and Canada can claim. Going through this accreditation process is voluntary, and requires animal hospital’s to meet over 900 rigorous standards. These standards cover everything from facility cleanliness & maintenance, service to you, care of your pet, ongoing education, and more.

We undergo this review process every 3 years and hold ourselves to these high standards because we feel that is what your pet’s deserve.

What does it mean to be a certified Cat-Friendly Practice?

As a Certified Cat-Friendly Practice, our team and facility have gone under extensive evaluation to ensure that we meet the standards set forth by the AAFP for feline care. These include things like:

  • A calming environment with reduced noise, other pets, etc.
  • Staff trained to understand the individualized needs of your cat
  • Feline-friendly handling guidelines & a slow approach for positive results
  • Ongoing education for feline veterinary medicine
  • Feline-exclusive areas of the facility

These are just a few of the benefits of bringing your pet to a Cat-Friendly Practice. We understand that bringing your cat to the vet can be a stressful experience. Our goal is to make veterinary care a rewarding experience for both you and your feline friend. Check out this video to see how our CFP certification benefits you and your cat!
