Ark of the Dunes Animal Hospital

They opened the doors of Ark of the Dunes Animal Hospital in 2001. Since this time they have taken pride in building personal connections and providing quality medicine to the Chesterton area. Dr. Julie Hyslop joined in 2010. She purchased the practice from James T. Read, DVM in 2018. With the addition of Dr. Andrea Hargarten and Dr. Vida Gaizutis in 2019, they have a team dedicated to providing you with the best care.

They have a wonderful support staff that understands that your pet is a very important member of your family, which is why they treat your pet as if it were their own. They drive to uphold values of family, integrity, positivity, community, and connection.

They’re excited to meet you and your furry family!
