About 'The Ark Veterinary Clinic'

The Ark was launched on 14th April 2005. We are certainly different from other veterinary clinic in the Chennai city. We had held many owner education programmes and workshops for children.

We also help out animal welfare activists like 'Cattitude Trust' and Radha Rajan (who helps out at The Blue Cross)

We do dental, gynaecological, cosmetic and orthopaedic surgeries for pet animals. The clinic includes a lab for x-ray and blood tests. The pets that are brought for consultation will be given a registration number.

At present, The Ark has three clinics in Chennai at:

  • Anna Nagar,

  • CIT Nagar, and

  • Thiruvanmiyur.

The Ark is run by Dr. S.M.Aravind Kumar, Dr. Afzal H Mohamed and, Dr. G.R. Baranidharan.

Dr. Afzal: "Basically, we wanted to make a difference in terms of veterinary clinic and experience. We like to spend time on a case and follow it up to its logical conclusions."
Dr. Aravind: "The significant factor that makes 'The Ark' special is that each of the partners has specialized in different stream of veterinary medicine. Only when you have more than one vet can you approach cases in a special way."
Dr. Barani: "We want 'The Ark' to be a one-stop for all health problems for pets. The main objective is to do things methodically rather than just make a difference."
