About Us

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 retirement In 2004, the practice was purchased by Dr. Robert Hott, a 1984 graduate of the University of Illinois. 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. After another complete remodeling, we opened it in April 2016.

Our office is located in Plymouth, but we serve clients from Northville, Livonia, Canton, Westland, and the surrounding area.

If you have any questions about our clinic, stop by for a visit! A helpful staff member will be happy to give you a tour and tell you more.
