Who We Are
Founded in 1958, DePorre Veterinary Hospital gets its name from none other than its original founder, Dr. Pierre DePorre. Since opening its doors, our veterinarians have been proud to provide compassionate care to the pets of Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Township, Birmingham, Franklin, and Royal Oak.
As a full-service animal hospital, we meet your pet’s every need and enrich their quality of life. Our AAHA-accredited animal hospital offers only the highest standards of veterinary medical care. What's more is we address each pet’s emotional well-being, too, through our staff's training as Fear Free Certified Professionals and our certification as a Cat Friendly Practice. We aim to make every pet feel right at home.
Located near Telegraph US-24, we are lucky to be located in a beautiful area of Oakland County, Michigan. Our location is easily accessible from multiple directions and even our own team live up to 20 miles in any direction.
Our Mission and Values
It is our mission to provide lifelong comprehensive care for dogs and cats and to promote the special bond between people and pets.
We educate and care for pets through all of their life stages, allowing them to be with their family as long as possible while living their life to the fullest.
We believe in kindness in the treatment of animals, respect in the treatment of clients and staff, and fairness in all operations through the expertise in the services we provide.
We have a calm, professional feel at our practice that has organized systems in place to help with a smoother workflow. We are collaborative and caring towards each other and our patients.
We are so blessed to have had generations of families and their furry family members entrust their care with us since 1958. Even though our practice has grown substantially over the years, we will still always hold a high value on communication and connection with our clients over the best care for their pet(s). We place equal emphasis on the client/veterinary team relationship. You matter!
In 2023, our team took a portion of the existing building previously dedicated to grooming services and completely renovated it into a state-of-the-art Surgical, Dental and Feline Center. We also offer an in-house pharmacy with team members dedicated to preparing medications and ensuring compliance.
We are open Monday through Friday 7:30am - 6:00pm and Saturdays from 7:30am - 2:00pm.
The team at DePorre Veterinary Hospital perform all the traditional veterinary services your dog or cat could need, as well as some alternative options for pain management including cold laser therapy. Your pet has a range of options for their recovery or management of a chronic condition. We don’t only focus on a pain-free experience, we aim to eliminate all fear, too! Our trained team performs all our services with a gentle hand and fear-free techniques. The services we offer include:
- Wellness care
- Dental care
- Spay & neuter
- Pain management
- Emergency care
We encourage our doctors to lean in where their passions lie, allowing them to further explore services such as internal medicine, surgery, dental, ophthalmology, or behavior.
We are proud to support the Michigan Animal Rescue League (MARL). Dr. Pierre DePorre supports the Mazunte project in Mexico and performs spay and neuter surgeries annually there. We also work closely with Oakland Animal Shelter when they have surgery cases that are more advanced.
Accreditations and Awards
Our hospital is proud to meet the highest standards in veterinary medicine with our AAHA accreditation. Additionally we are also Cat Friendly Certified and many of our team members are Fear Free Certified.
We have also been voted Best of Detroit from Hour magazine multiple times over the years.
