DePorre Veterinary Hospital Celebrate 65 Years

At DePorre Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to announce that we are approaching our 65th Anniversary! This means 65 years of providing the highest level of medical care to pets and the highest level of service to our clients in Bloomfield Hills and the surrounding areas. 

As we reflect on our history we are so grateful to many people, from our dedicated staff to our amazing clients, all who have helped to make DePorre Veterinary Hospital what it is today. As we look toward the future, we are so excited to continue to build on the excellent reputation that has been established. DePorre Veterinary Hospital has always been, and continues to be 100% privately and locally owned. At a time when many veterinary hospitals are being bought and consolidated under large corporate owners with little to no local connection, DePorre Veterinary Hospital has held on to its roots. As Dr. Pierre DePorre and Dr. Jules DePorre began to step back and eventually retire, new leaders have stepped forward to continue the level of excellence for which DePorre Veterinary Hospital has become known. This process began in 2015 when Dr. Kristen Fox became an owner, and continued in 2020 with Dr. Thomas DeHondt becoming an owner. Both Dr. Fox and Dr. DeHondt have spent their entire veterinary careers at DePorre Veterinary Hospital, embracing the culture of teamwork and the mission of providing the absolute highest level of veterinary care to our patients. Dr. DeHondt’s family has a long history of dedication and ownership at DePorre Veterinary Hospital, including his uncle, Dr. Jules DePorre, and his grandfather before that. 

The next major step in the evolution of our practice is the opening of our new Surgery, Dentistry and Feline Center. We have been putting in many long hours behind the scenes to design, build and equip our new facilities to provide all of our patients with the highest level of surgical, dental and anesthetic veterinary care. This will also include the addition of three new canine exam rooms as well as three new feline only exam rooms and a dedicated feline procedures and ultrasound space, further advancing our Cat Friendly Practice initiative. 

Surgery and dentistry services can often provide drastic improvements in the quality of your pet’s life. Please inquire about recommendations for your pet at your next visit. We are scheduling appointments now and with our expanded surgery and dentistry capacity, we have immediate openings available. We are extremely proud of our new facilities and we anticipate hosting an Open House this Spring for all to come and see! In the meantime, we welcome any questions and feedback.
