If all the beasts were gone, men would die from a great loneliness of spirit, for whatever happens to the beasts also happens to the man. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth.

At Patterson Dog & Cat Hospital, caring for Detroit's pets and pet owners is much more than a job. It's a tradition. As Michigan and America's oldest animal hospital, we have an incredible history of nurturing the bonds between people and their pets. And while our services, equipment, and clinic have been updated over time in order to provide patients with the highest standards of care, our deep commitment to your pet's wellness has not changed one bit since the hospital opened its doors in 1844.
We continue to consider it both an honor and a responsibility when pet owners entrust our animal clinic with the health of their dog or cat. And we continue to let compassion and a genuine concern for your animal's welfare drive our veterinary care.
In addition to providing a full menu of the highest quality pet health, dog grooming, and cat grooming services, we also strive to strengthen the special relationship you have with your pet by offering expert advice and education that can improve your pet's overall health and happiness and enhance the quality of the time you share with your animal.
We want you to enjoy many fulfilling years with your beloved pet. We pledge to be a veterinarian you can trust to provide care, compassion, support, and veterinary advice throughout your pet's lifetime.
