The vets at Chicago’s Metropolitan Veterinary Center are among the best trained, skilled and experienced veterinarians practicing in the area. Not only are they accomplished professionally, but our entire staff comes to this profession with a deep sense of compassion for all animals.

We understand that the decision to allow your beloved companion to undergo surgery is never an easy one. Despite the confidence we have in our abilities and state-of-the-art veterinary surgical suite, we know that surgery is difficult for both you and your pet. This is why we work as hard as we do to ensure your pet’s procedure is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

Stenotic Nares Repair in a French Bulldog.


Perhaps the most important pre-surgical step we take is to discuss why we believe a particular procedure is necessary and what it entails. We also provide information on proper postoperative care and answer any questions you may have so that you feel comfortable that you are making the right choice for your pet.

We believe that our personal attention to each patient and client, coupled with our experience, is what makes our pet surgical services unique.



We offer a wide array of veterinary surgical services in our Chicago veterinary clinic facility. It is important for you and your pet to receive care in a friendly, welcoming environment from people you both have come to know in order to reduce stress and promote healing. For your convenience, all surgical services are available seven days per week.
