Airport Animal Clinic was founded in 1967 by Dr. Frederick P. Hamann and his wife Nancy. They began by working out of their home on Lincoln Street, in Cadillac, when Dr. Hamann saw most of his patients via house visits or on farm calls. The hours were long, hard, and unpredictable for both of them
In 1968, the Hamanns moved the business to it's first physical location on Boon Road across from the Wexford County Airport thus giving it it's name. Airport Animal Clinic remained there for the next 31 years during which time more veterinarians joined the practice, and also more staff members. Toward the end of that time period, it became apparent that the business had outgrown the building and Dr. Hamann began drawing up plans for a new, larger facility.
His unexpected death in 1999 put building plans on hold for awhile and the following year, Nancy decided to take a well-earned retirement and moved to Holland, Michigan to be near family.
Eventually, the plans resumed and in 2004, the business was relocated to it's current address.
The Hamanns' hard work and dedication to providing the best veterinary care possible for over 30 years, created the foundation for the Airport Animal Clinic, which continues to grow and proudly serve the Cadillac area and surrounding communities. And while he didn't live to see it built, we can thank Dr. Hamann for having the vision of building the beautiful 6000 square foot facility which Airport Animal Clinic now calls home.
