I've been going to MetVet since 2004. I have 9 cats and rescue/TNR ferals, so I've been to many vets over the years and this place is my favorite.

Over the years, I have had the middle-of-the-night emergencies, surgeries, treatment of chronic diseases (kidney and thyroid), help with the decision of when it's time to say goodbye to elderly cats who were very ill and suffering, as well as the normal routine appointments. My cats are the most important thing in the world to me, and I am most comfortable with Met Vet as their primary caregiver.

All of their vets are great, but my new favorite vet there is Dr. Hill. He is absolutely wonderful.

To the people complaining about the cost: I don't know any vet that doesn't require payment upfront; it is how they stay in business and have the best equipment and help available. It's a financial burden for sure, but having a pet is a lifetime commitment and I'll always find a way to pay for the best care. I honestly don't see much of a price difference compared to other vets in the area.

I brought my cat here for an emergency appointment on a holiday. The staff was very knowledgeable and compassionate. The doctor explained things to me in a way that made even the most complicated things easy to understand. I had certain financial concerns but I wanted to have the necessary procedures done. They were able to work within my budget in order to give my cat the best care possible. My cat had to stay for several nights and there was always someone with him. I also got daily updates from the doctor. I have transfered all my pets here because I know that my pets life has in the past, and may once again, be in their hands. I have full confidence in them. I am willing to pay the extra dollar or two because I know that that dollar is going towards having the best staff and equipment possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a vet, with the confidence that they would not be disappointed. The doctors and staff are of the highest caliber, and they actually care about their patients. I have never come across a group of people who were more dedicated.

PROS: Everything!! I have no complaints at all.
CONS:

Although the care is good here, they always present you with the high priced option first, and if you balk, they tell you your alternatives. Be careful.

PROS: Good care
CONS: Price - really seems like a racket.

Before I moved to FL, I had taken my dog here for quite a while. I was always satisfied with the quality of care he received, preventative and surgical. I felt the vets & techs there really knew their stuff. They are also open 24 hrs for emergencies which is reassuring. I would highly recommend them, although some may feel their prices are a little high, however I would rather pay more and know my baby is well taken care of.

PROS: Knowledgeable staff, hi-tech equipment, open 24 hrs
CONS: Somewhat pricey
