Welcome to Metropolitan
in Chicago

We are a Chicago Veterinary Hospital and Emergency Vet 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 have created a convenient, state-of-the-art facility to provide advanced, comprehensive care, located in Chicago's South Loop.
