We're pleased to offer the following services at Noah's Ark Animal Hospital Veterinary Clinic:

Prevention and Wellness

Dr. Hunter is dedicated to providing your pet with comprehensive examinations, because she and her dedicated staff know an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.  Recommending what is best for your pet and providing education is essential for preventing illness and ensuring a long life of wellness.

General Surgery

We offer a wide range of routine and advanced soft tissue surgeries, such as Feline and Canine Spaying, and Neutering, Feline Declawing, Growth Removals, Cystotomies and Exploratory surgeries.  All procedures are performed using up-to-date technology, fluid therapy support, and anesthesia, respiration, and cardiac monitoring.

Laboratory Diagnostic Services

Determining the cause of a pet’s illness relies on reliable and quick laboratory diagnostics.  Utilizing both our In-House Laboratory services and the more extensive services of our Off-site Laboratory, Dr. Hunter can better diagnose and treat our client’s pets’ diseases and conditions.


With the use of digital technology, we are able to provide our clients rapid and sharp Radiographs (x-rays) of their pet’s problem areas.  Most radiology procedures can be done while the client is here, but with our convenient drop-off policy, we can provide pets a relaxed and unhurried experience too.

Dentistry and Oral Surgery

Bad breath is the first sign which leads concerned pet owners to seek dental cleanings for their pets. In addition to general dental prophylactic care, Dr. Hunter and her team is ready to treat serious tooth and gum disease with advanced oral surgery care.  Bad breath, loose, broken and decaying teeth, and gum disease are painful symptoms of poor oral health.  Fortunately, Dr. Hunter is ready to provide treatment and care.


Keeping pets healthy starts with working with our clients to identify the vaccination protocol that is appropriate and best for their pets.   Vaccinations are just one important component of a pet’s Annual Wellness Visit. 


A lost pet is devastating to the family.  Microchips are the best way to improve the chances of reuniting a pet to its owners. Our team will make sure the owner, pet, and microchip are registered with a national database, to ensure their pet will never be further away than a phone call.

Home Visits

When it is impossible for an owner to bring their pet to Noah’s Ark to be seen, we are pleased to offer the convenience of a Home Visit for most Wellness Visits, as well as for those difficult End of Life services.

Heartworm, Flea and Tick Prevention

We offer multiple options for Heartworm, Flea, and Tick products that are available only by prescription.  Heartworm preventatives require a current heartworm test prior to recommending which product would be best for our clients’ dogs and cats.

Nutritional Counseling and Prescription Diets

Pets diagnosed with specific medical conditions are often treated with medication, however many health conditions (obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, osteoarthritis, etc.) can be supported with a diet specifically created for the pet’s needs.  Recommendations can be made after a thorough physical examination and, if necessary, blood work or radiographs (x-rays).

On-Line Pharmacy

Most medications, heartworm, flea and tick preventatives, as well as prescription diets, can be purchased through our own on-line pharmacy, Vetsource.  Our clients enjoy the convenience of this home delivery option.


Pets requiring intensive or acute care may require a short-term stay in our clinic. We are able to provide comfortable hospitalization and attentive supportive care, including a separate area for pets requiring Isolation.  For our client’s convenience, we also offer early day-time outpatient drop off for healthy pets needing wellness and preventative services, in addition to scheduled medical procedures.


Our Groomer, Ginny Lindberg, has over 30 years of grooming experience and is ready and waiting to provide our clients’ cats and dogs a much deserved day at the “spa.”


Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open.

Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

Emergency After Hours:
Blue Pearl Specialty Medicine: (813)571-3303
Animal Emergency Clinic of Brandon: (813)684-3013

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening. If you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment, our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
