VCA Ark Animal Hospital is a recently renovated state-of-the-art veterinary facility located at Belmont and Kedzie in Chicago, Illinois. Our 4,100 square foot animal hospital is designed for delivering the best veterinary care in an environment that’s comfortable for pets and pet guardians, including a private visiting and waiting room. We promise to put our knowledge of veterinary medicine to work for you and your pet. VCA Ark Animal Hospital has been here for 15 years and is proud to be a part of the Avondale community. We also work with several different rescues including PAWS Chicago, Chicago English Bulldog Rescue, and Chicago Canine Rescue.
The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) sets the standard for quality veterinary care for companion animals. As an accredited hospital, we voluntarily uphold the Association's high standards in 18 different areas and are routinely evaluated on over 900 different standards of veterinary care. Not all animal hospitals are accredited, and we are proud to be amongst only 12-15% of veterinary hospitals that hold this honor.
As veterinary professionals, we know that the stress and anxiety associated with taking a pet to the veterinarian is a significant reason why pets don't always receive the medical attention they need. Fear Free℠ veterinary visits reduce feelings of stress, resulting in a better experience for all involved, including pets, owners, and veterinary health care teams. Having a Fear Free℠ Certified Professional can help alleviate your pet's fear, anxiety, and stress when visiting our hospital.
Caring for pets means meeting a wide range of needs beyond health care. Fortunately, there’s a whole community of organizations and businesses eager to help.
Here's where to meet the local groups that we recommend to our pet-loving families.
