Veterinary Services

Patterson Dog & Cat Hospital is a full-service animal clinic you can trust to provide the care your dog or cat requires for a lifetime of health and happiness. Our veterinarians and staff focus on comprehensive pet healthcare, including pet wellness care, dog and cat dental care, and pet surgery, as well as professional dog grooming and cat grooming services.

You can rest assured that we always have your pet’s best interest in mind. The Detroit area is home to many high quality animal care services, and we often refer our patients to local board-certified veterinary specialists, emergency service providers, and other caretakers who have expertise in the additional services you may need for your pet. You can be confident that we only refer to veterinarians and organizations that share our commitment to your animal’s well being.

Our Veterinary Services

  • Pet health: From puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats, we provide comprehensive health services including pet vaccinations, pet dental services, and surgical care. We place a strong focus on wellness care and disease prevention.
  • Grooming: We provide professional grooming services for dogs and cats. Your pet does not need to be a veterinary patient to take advantage of our dog grooming and cat grooming services. However, we do require all grooming patients to be current on vaccines. This is just one way we do all we can to minimize your pet’s potential exposure to preventable diseases.
  • Pet pharmacy: We can write and fill pet prescriptions for the dogs and cats we treat at the animal hospital. You can fill your prescriptions here at the animal clinic or you can take advantage of our online prescription store.
  • Microchip services: In a big city like Detroit, it’s easy for a person to get lost—not to mention a dog or cat! We use the resQ Pet Identification System, a safe and convenient microchip system that can aid rescuers in ensuring your pet finds his or her way home. Visit the Datamars website to learn more about the microchip system we use or visit Pet Link to register your pet’s microchip ID.

Recommendations for Additional Pet Services

  • Emergency services: If your pet has a medical emergency after business hours, we recommend that you visit one of our trusted emergency service partners
  • Pet adoption: If you are looking to adopt a cat or dog or if you have a pet that needs a good home, we invite you to take advantage of our adoption tool. We are also happy to refer you to local pet adoption agencies.
  • Pet boarding services: The Patterson Dog & Cat Hospital no longer boards animals. However, to ensure you feel comfortable leaving your dog or cat with a caregiver you can trust, we regularly visit local boarding facilities to assess their services.

  • Behavior training: Our expert staff can provide you with guidelines on basic pet training, including advice on housetraining, eliminating chewing and scratching, and helping your pet through a transition period such as a move or a new pet or baby in the family. Our goal is to help prevent your animal from becoming shy, fearful, or aggressive. For more structured training programs, including puppy training classes and comprehensive modification programs for more severe behavior issues, we provide referrals to organizations that specialize in these areas.
