About Bark City


Welcome to Bark City! 


At Bark City Veterinary Specialists, our mission is simple. We work with your family veterinarian to ensure your pets receive the best care possible. As a specialty hospital, Bark City runs on collaboration with local veterinarians. While your family veterinarian handles your pet’s primary health concerns, Bark City provides many forms of specialized care to assist in maximizing your pet’s health and quality of life. We believe in a compassionate & personal approach to everything we do. As Veterinary Specialists, our responsibility is to provide your family and your primary care veterinarian with the best possible treatment plan for your needs.

Bark City is a veterinarian-owned Speciality Hospital founded by Veterinary Specialists. Bark City was formed in a strategic partnership with Beale's Best, an independent group founded by Veterinary Specialists, to bring hands-on Veterinary Continuing Education to Utah. We are grateful to the Veterinary Community for welcoming us & joining our mission to put Park City on the map as a hub of excellence in Clinical Care, Research & Education.
