Celebrating 65 years
Generations of local pet owners have utilized the services of DePorre Veterinary Hospital, 4066 W. Maple Road in Bloomfield Township. The locally-owned and operated veterinary hospital was begun by Dr. Pierre DePorre 65 years ago, and then the practice was carried forward by his son, Dr. Pierre DePorre and nephew, Dr. Jules DePorre. As they recently have stepped back and begun to retire, the hospital announced that new leadership has come forward to continue their legacy. “This process began in 2015, when Dr. Kristen Fox became an owner, and continued in 2020 with Dr. Thomas DeHondt becoming an owner.” Fox and DeHondt have both spent their entire careers at DePorre – and DeHondt carries on the DePorre family legacy as a nephew of Dr. Jules. Both Fox and DeHondt say they embrace the culture of teamwork and the mission of providing the highest level of veterinary care to their patients. As they celebrate the veterinary hospital’s 65th year, they are opening a new Surgery, Dentistry and Feline Center to continue offering their furry patients the best of all care available with the highest level of surgical, dental and anesthetic veterinary care. In addition, the new feline center, with three dedicated exam rooms and dedicated feline procedures and ultrasound space advance their feline friendly practice initiative.
