As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited clinic, open since 2012, our team of veterinarians and support staff adheres to the highest standards of facility and pet care. Only 15% of all practices are AAHA certified (re-accreditation takes place every 3 years). However, our greatest source of pride is found in the praise of our clients and the satisfied purrs and wagging tails of our patients.

Get to know your veterinarian

We have found the key to quality veterinary care is a combination of medical competence, empathy for pet owners and compassion for our animal companions. Our veterinarians will listen to your concerns, diagnose any medical conditions, help you understand your options and work with you to make the right decisions for you and your pet.

At Metropolitan Veterinary Center, our team is made up of a diverse group of veterinarians and support staff professionals who bring their love for animals to work with them everyday. Our veterinary team comes from all backgrounds, and they have joined Metropolitan Veterinary Center because of their desire to make a difference in the lives of animals, as well as the people who love those animals.

CHICAGO VETERINARY HOSPITAL

We are a Chicago Veterinary Hospital founded on the observation that traditional veterinary practices have limited evening and weekend hours, requiring clients to adjust their busy schedules in order to obtain proper care for their beloved pets or be sent to an ER facility. 

Metropolitan Veterinary Center is open 7am to 10pm, seven days a week in order to best serve our clients and patients. At our South Loop hospital, we provide routine services such as elective surgeries and wellness exams in addition to animal emergency/critical care and surgery.

 

We try to make scheduling a veterinary clinic appointment as convenient as possible for you. There are several ways to easily schedule an appointment for your pet to be seen at our veterinary clinic: 

 

  1. Fill out our online appointment request form
  2. Contact us by phone at (312) 757-7809
  3. Stop into our veterinary clinic to schedule an appointment in person. View Map & Directions
