Quality, Compassionate Veterinary Care for Detroit’s Dogs and Cats


The great pleasure of a dog is that you may make a fool of yourself with him and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too.

About Us

As Michigan’s oldest, privately operated veterinary hospital, the staff at Patterson Dog & Cat Hospital takes an extraordinary amount of pride in offering more than 150 years’ worth of the highest quality, compassion-driven veterinary care for your dog or cat. Our goal is to provide a place where Detroit pet owners can feel confident that we have their pets’ best interests at heart. We have a long tradition of caring for pets from puppy- or kittenhood through the senior years, and it has earned us the trust of countless families and their animals.

But it’s not just our history that sets us apart. Our downtown Detroit location and the longevity of our staff also make a difference to our clients. We are committed to the people and pets in our area. Many of our veterinary staff members have been with the hospital for more than a decade, and we’ve developed long-term, caring relationships with our clients—of the canine, feline, and human variety.

In addition to the veterinary services and care we provide our clients, we also support animals in our community in need of assistance. We partner with WAGS (Wonderful Animals Giving Support) to help HIV-positive pet owners continue to keep, feed, and care for their pets. We also work with Hamtramck Cat Assistance Team (HCAT) to provide veterinary care for stray, homeless, feral, and forgotten cats and kittens.

We appreciate your interest in Patterson Dog & Cat Hospital. We invite you to learn more about our history, our doctor, the quality services we provide, and how you can become a new client. We look forward to building a relationship with you and your pet, and to providing a lifetime of quality care for your animal.
