Welcome To Dexter Animal Clinic

About Our Veterinary Clinic



An executive order signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer Monday restricts all non-essential veterinary procedures.

The order temporarily prohibits non-essential procedures starting March 31 to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Vets are also being encouraged to practice telemedicine as much as possible.

While there’s no evidence animals can transmit COVID-19, the order is to ensure people are continuing social distancing, Whitmer said.

“Non-essential procedures” mean everything other than what is necessary to preserve the life of the pet, treat serious pain, euthanize, or treat or prevent the spread of an infectious disease. 

Dear Dexter Animal Clinic clients,

Effective 3/18/2020

We are still open during this period of time, however, we are changing how we see appointments due to the growing concerns around COVID-19.  During this time, we will be serving clients from their vehicles in order to keep our clients, patients, and staff as safe as possible. Once you arrive at the clinic, whether to pick up food or medications, or bring in a pet please remain in your vehicle and call us at 734-426-4631 to let the team know you have arrived.

A staff member will communicate with you over the phone to go over a history, treatment plan and estimates . A staff member will come to securely transport your pet into the hospital. We can take payment over the phone.

We truly appreciate your time and patience during this time.

Meet Stuart – Our #1 Boarder

Dexter Animal Clinic has been part of this community since 1971 when Dr. Steve Hastings started his practice. In 1977, he began work on the current clinic and actually built it himself along with friends and family members. Dr. Hastings retired from the veterinary practice some time ago, but you may still see him from time to time puttering around and working on the landscape.

Today, new faces and a fresh approach to modern veterinary medicine are evident at the clinic. Our entire team, from the president of the corporation to the newest staff member has strong commitment to providing high quality veterinary care, excellent service, and pricing that is fair and affordable. We are committed to providing you with excellent value for the investment you make in your pet’s health and well being.

We look forward to meeting you and your furry family!
