Success! Thanks for posting your review of Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital. You’ve done the world some good today.


I must say that this hospital may be a Godsend for some, mostly people with A LOT of money. I don't understand such high prices for bandages, and excessive wait times. It's one place you can't leave for less that $300. Unfortunately, that is the state of vet care these days. So many unwanted animals and it's best just to adopt them and care for them, then when there old age sickness comes put them down. It's the most... view more

I called before going in as an emergency to make sure that they could treat birds. I was assured that they could. Upon getting there I was told that the avian vet, Dr. Riggs was there and would be immediately consulted and that my bird was "very stable" hour later I was presented with a paper stating the care would be between $600-$1200 and that my bird was now critical and that treatment may kill him but lack... view more

I took my chinchilla here, because it was acting strange and kept having little seizure-like episodes. When the doctor finally came into our room, he said that our chinchilla was stable and was showing no signs or symptoms of abnormalities. He told us we had two options, have the chinchilla admitted ($400) and have numerous tests run the next day or take him home because there was nothing else they could do. We drove... view more

Two weeks ago my dog began limping, the limping was followed by swelling that gradually got worse over the course of the day. Since it was the 4th of July my normal vet was closed, so I took my dog to Metropolitan. The vet had no idea what the swelling was coming from, so she asked to take x-rays. Two vet techs came up to take my dog away on a stretcher since she is a large mastiff and wasn't able to walk well. One o... view more

Metro is a God send! I live in the Cleveland area and I found Metro to be less expensive than other vets in my area- especially the ER visit. The Akron residents should feel especially lucky to have such a wonderful facility in their area with such wonderful doctors. They diagnosed my dog right away when no other doctors knew what was going on with him. The people leaving these negative reviews about cost need to... view more

I had my English Mastiff, Molly in to see Dr. Axlund this week, also his co-worker, Dr. Yates. I can not say enough about how awesome these docs were with my dog. They really gave a feeling of care & concern for her needs. I was impressed by them, beyond words. They made me confident & secure in their care for her & their ability to assess her needs & issues. I never hoped to have... view more

Metro Vet is superb. Drs. Smith, Axlund and Yates are kind, caring, and helpful. So too are their receptionists. We've taken our dogs to Metro Vet for the past 15+ years and have had excellent experiences with their internists, surgeons, and orthopaedists. We feel fortunate having such a fine facility in the area.
