Really Dr. Smith ? Would you euth a friend or family member if he had HIV (i/o FIV), or subject him to a life of isolation from other humans i/o domesticated felines ? Perhaps you should read this article very carefully, verify it's accuracy with other EXPERTS in the Vet Medicine field who are to date on information and recommendations that should be related to pet owners when their cat tests FIV+. You have a responsibility to save lives, not unnecessarily put an end to them, due to lack of knowledge on your own part. I hope other owners / clients will do their due dilligence and homework before trusting the word of a vetenarian who not may be 100 % up on his game. Hope Ark has more experience and is more knowledgable in the canine arena, but since I don't have dogs, I cannot comment. http://www.bestfriends.org/theanimals/petcare/cats_fiv.cfm Won't be returning to Ark..... we'll be going to the Cats Meow for felines. We live and learn every day. But it was clean and the staff was accomodating if that is of any consolence.

I used to like Ark Animal Hospital and have brought my pets there for many years. However, I am very disappointed in them. My cat has lower urinary obstruction. I've already spent alot of money at emergency vets etc. to correct the problem. The vets at Banfield told me he needs surgery which will be another thousand dollars or so. I called Ark Animal hospital to ask if they would do the surgery and allow me to make payments - not anything long and drawn out just perhaps 2 or 3 payments. They refused because the Dr. is not busy enough. Usually, Ark is very compassionate, I was surprised at their unfeeling response. I will be transferring my other pet over to Banfield Vets now.

Regarding Jon C.'s review: I really don't think he woke up in San Francisco and took his dog to a vet in Surfside Beach. He's reviewing a different place. Ark is great!

In response to Jon C- I don't know where you were looking, but I have never seen chart holders on the doors outside or inside the rooms anywhere at Ark and I have been taking my pets there for years. I hope this does not deter people from making appointments to be seen by the staff at Ark. I agree that the staff looks like they are running around and busy all the time, because they are! And although I may have to wait, it is well worth it because of the care and compassion my pets get while being seen.

I love Ark! I have been taking my dog there for some time now and they are always friendly and accommodating. They are a very busy office, so a wait is generally expected. That only means that they are caring for other animals in the same caring way they care for mine. Recently I had the need to get in right away, they of course were very accommodating and got Sassy in the same day. Long story short, she does require surgery and we scheduled that for this week.

What I was most impressed with was that Dr. Smith, who tended to Sassy at that appointment and did the necessary testing for diagnosis, actually called on Saturday to check on Sassy as well as to give the lab results. WOW! Can you imagine the surprise! A doctor who actually called to check on a patient and give lab results on a Saturday.

I would recommend Ark to anyone in need of a team of caring individuals and great medical staff.

I like the doctors at the ARK, but it is just too crazy in there. There is too much going on for them to give me the attention that I feel I have paid for and that my pet deserves. You have to wait FOREVER. Maybe they should use some of their profits to add on to the facility and hire more employees. Have started going to Murrells Inlet Veterinary Hospital. It is a totally different world over there with excellent care.

What an awesome place! I have been in the area for 3 weeks and needed a vet for my dog. Different people in the community had recommended Ark, and I am so grateful I listened.I called in the morning and was seen in the afternoon. My dog is a rescue that had been abused, and she is very nervous about new people. The entire staff was wonderful to her. They were so gentle and so patient and so understanding. They listened to me when I talked and explained her situation. Dr. J even got on the floor with my dog so she would feel more relaxed. I felt so at ease with everyone there.
The prices are also amazing. I was pleasantly surprised when my total bill was presented. Often, the service lacks when prices are kept low, but not here, service was above and beyond. I have definetely found the vet for my dog and I.

I love this place! The vet that I saw for my husky was very nice to she explained every thing to me. She gave me a price before doing anything and even showed me ways to cut the cost with optional services. You will not be disappointed! Thanks Ark!

Our neighbor recommended Ark to us and we are so glad she did. Daisy had been having problems for years, itching, loss of hair,lathargy,feeling really bad. Dr. Schrumpert took control and treated Daisy so lovingly and professionally, just like she was her own.After many tests we learned Daisy had a thyroid problem, something her former vet in Sumter had never tested for. We will always be grateful to Dr. Schrumpert and the whole staff at Ark for their superior care and ability. We would never change vets, Daisy is our child and we only want the best for her. Those of you who are furkids owners will relate to what I am saying. Ark will give your pet the best of care and you never feel like you are just a number on the sign in sheet
Now Daisy is so much improved and frisky, Thank You Dr. Schrumpert and Thank You Ark Animal Hospital..

We took our dog to ARC animal hospital today. We didn't have an appointment and only had to wait about 15 or 20 mins. to be seen. The vet was very nice and didn't act like she was in a hurry like I have experienced with some vets. The office staff was very friendly. I was very pleased with the service but best of all I was SHOCKED at the price....very very reasonable prices. I am from out of town and it is good to know that I have a reliable place to take my dog when I am visiting Myrtle Beach.

They are a decent and honest business. The vet I dealt with is a good guy and he didn't try to get me to spend unnecessary money. I had a dealing with them in the beginning which left me unsatisfied, but the vet attempted to make this up to me. I was then satisfied. I found that they were receptive to criticism and in the end they did provide my pet with the good care I wanted. I would recommend them but I would say, if your pet is the nervous type, call ahead and ask for tranquilizers.

Yes, this is a very busy facility (because of the quality of care they provide), so you may have to wait. However, they give each patient wonderful individualized attention. Anytime I've come in with an emergency, they've triaged it as such, so you don't have to wait. Furthermore,they genuinely care about your pet as much as you do, and it shows. I have been using this vet since 1996 and would not use any other. There was a brief time when I had moved away, so, unfortunately, I did have to use other vets, and the quality of care those vets provided was nowhere near as compassionate or as skilled. I drive about 30-40 minutes to take my dogs to this vet, but it's worth it!

I took my dog there to get his nails trimmed and they did them all jagged and he was scratching everything including me! And the reason I took him to get them trimmed was so he wouldn't scratch things! They were not helpful to me.

I took my squirrel to Ark Animal in 2001 and they saved her life. They told me that they have saved some squirrel too!! I also found a cardinal , who they took to nurse back to health. I have been taking my animals there and recommending them ever since.

Too busy! Our dog developed "bloat" one evening and we had to take him to the emergency vet. They were able to keep him alive until we could get him to our vet to preform emergency surgery the next morning. We notified Ark that we were coming and arrived at Ark when they opened. After waiting for over an hour, they told us that they were too busy to preform the surgery. Hello...what don't you understand about emergency surgery! We went to another vet in Murrells Inlet who got us in immediately. They said that his stomach had started to twist again and had him prepping for surgery in minutes. Needless to say, I won't go back to Ark ever again!

I have been using this vet since 1984 and wouldn't take my pets anywhere else. The dr's are well trained and caring. They treat everything from dogs and cats to exotic pets and are well trained in them all. Prices are very reasonable.
