About Our Veterinary Clinic…
Colonial Veterinary Clinic was started as a dog and cat hospital by Dr. Kermit Walter in 1973. Upon Dr. Walter’s retirment 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.
