About us

Welcome to Noah's Ark Veterinary Clinic. We are an independent small animal practice in central Dunstable, on the edge of the beautiful Dunstable Downs. There has been a veterinary practice at 54 High Street South, Dunstable since the 1960s. Prior to this the building was home to Noah's Ark Cafe - hence our name!

The practice was bought by Carl and Liz Temple in 2003. Carl worked at the practice as a vet and Liz as the practice manager. In March 2017, Carl sadly passed away after a courageous and dignified battle with cancer. Liz Temple continues to own the practice.

We are extremely proud to have been nominated for the Petplan Veterinary Awards 2018 for the second year running.

We have been nominated in the following categories:




Noah's Ark Veterinary Clinic is a professional, friendly, well equipped, small animal veterinary practice where compassion, patient care and doing the right thing always comes first. We have an experienced veterinary team, and practice to a gold standard in terms of treatment and care. Our vets regularly attend courses so they are clinically and surgically up to date in new treatment options.

We always involve clients fully in making treatment plans and always have the best interests of our patients and clients at the heart of everything we do, including offering referral to a specialist if we feel that is the best thing for your pet.

We act with integrity and openness at all times and will always honestly tell you what we feel clinically is best for your pets. You will be given an estimate for costs of any treatment or investigations necessary so you are always aware of likely costs. Because we are a single site, independent practice where case continuity is very much at the heart of what we try to do, we are able to form genuine bonds with our patients and clients and really get to know you.
