About Our Veterinary Clinic…
Colonial Veterinary Clinic was started as a dog and cat hospital by Dr. Kermit Walter in 1973. In 2004, the practice was purchased by Dr. Robert Hott. After a complete remodeling, we opened up Colonial Veterinary Clinic 2.0″. We eventually outgrew our little “house clinic” and purchased a commercial building at 1115 S. Main St., just down the street from our former facility, in July of 2015. After another complete remodeling, we opened it in April, 2016. We now have lots more room as well as handicapped access.
Our office is located in Plymouth, but we serve clients from Northville, Livonia, Canton, Westland and the surrounding area. We can even make house calls in those areas if you have an animal that is too large or too sick to conveniently bring in.
Dr. Hott is a 1984 graduate of the University of Illinois. He is married to Karen, the love of his life for 40 years, who teaches high school chemistry and elementary science at Plymouth Christian Academy. They have three grown children. Dr. Hott is an active volunteer for Christian Veterinary Mission and the Yankee Air Museum at Willow Run, Michigan.
