Our Story

Dr. James Read opened the doors of Ark of the Dunes Animal Hospital in 2001 as a single doctor practice. Since this time he has built the hospital to provide quality medicine to the Chesterton area. With the addition of Dr. Julie Hyslop in 2010, and Dr. Annie Klingbeil in 2017, we have a team dedicated to providing you with the best care. Dr. Julie purchased the practice in 2018, as Dr. Read is preparing for retirement. She plans to continue to grow the practice and welcome new clients. We have a wonderful support staff that understands that your pet is a very important member of your family, which is why we treat your pet as if it were our own.

We offer laser surgery, digital x-rays, wellness care, in house blood-work, and client education. We also have a boarding facility on site.
