This is Cyrano, our Pet of the Week! She was here today for her Senior Preventative exam. Senior pets are much happier with preventative care...and when they climb inside of shelves. ‪#‎Petoftheweek‬

There were 148 new cases of positive Heartworm disease diagnosed for Ohio in May.

There have been 649 so far in 2015!

As scary as that is, this only represents results through two labs, so the number is probably at least 3 times higher, and that's only those animals who were tested.

We recommend year-round Heartworm prevention for ALL dogs and cats. Call us and we'll get your pets protected. 440-826-1520

The 4th of July is next week (NEXT WEEK!?). Fireworks may be fun for us, but they can be sheer terror for our pets. Our RVT Jessica wrote a great blog post to help us help our pets during the holiday. Check it out!

Dr. Alice and staff are wonderful. They always treat our furry friends as if they are the most special animals they've ever seen. They are extremely thorough and take the time to review their exams, discuss results, and make sure we understand everything we need to know about our pets' health. We would highly recommend Metropet.

Thanks for the kind words about our staff! We're glad that our philosophy (pets are Family) is coming through in the rooms.

I was referred to this location. Upon arrival the waiting room was not inviting (decor wise/drab/gloomy), than there was the receptionist, Mary I think, she was kind and hard a nice warm welcome for our new puppy and my family. She went above and beyond to assure that we were comfortable. When we went into the exam room, I yet again felt out of sorts; stained chairs, dingy walls, no appeal. Which is kind of hard to not notice; especially when trying to find a place to care for a loved one and possibly more of your loved ones. Anyhow, when the doc arrived she was kind, knowledgeable and most of all caring; great traits for a doc. Our puppy came from a backyard breeder (we believe) and had a wide array of symptoms they needed to analyze. They performed blood work, stool analysis, gave him heartworm prevention, antibiotics for the parasites and puppy check which cost us right around $275. Price was moderate. So after careful consideration I believe that the kindness of Mary and Doc out weighed some of the negative factors (appeal and price) and we will be returning again and will update review.

Thank you for the good things that you said about our staff, they truly love animals and I'm glad that it shows. Thank you also for the comments about the reception area and our exam rooms. We are currently working to redecorate them, and your comments confirm what we already saw. Hopefully you will notice a difference the next time that you come in. Thanks again.

Taking our Hedgehog Lucy here has been an amazing experience. She gets stressed out very easily and can be difficult to inspect but the care she's received from Dr. Alice, Dr. Kim and the staff has been incredible. I would recommend anyone bring their pet to see them. You'll know that spiny or furry part of your family is being taken care of by the best.
Response from the owner - 2 months ago
We love Lucy and loved seeing her! Thanks for the kind words, I'm glad our dedication shows through.

I love Metropet, and more importantly my dog loves Metropet. He gets treated incredibly well and the office is open convenient hours so I can take him to the vet around my work schedule. The people are incredible, very nice and very easy to deal with. They appear and act like they really love what they do and that is really important to a pet owner. They keep my dog healthy and happy.

I am nothing but impressed with the care all of our pets have received at Metropet. The owner, Dr. Alice Toriello, and her associate, Dr. Toby Beck, have set the bar high. We have, at present, one dog, one cat, and six ferrets. The care they receive is top-notch all the way and both vets are equally comfortable with the ferrets which is a little unusual. Many vets don't even treat them so we are very blest. All of the employees at Metropet are exceptional assets, too. The caring starts at the top and filters all the way down. They deserve every bit of praise they get.

Pros: Convenient and good veterinary care - Cons: young veterinarians. My background: I've had all manner of pets for 45 years and have been rescuing various for 20 plus. I've dealt with all kinds of vets. You can tell the difference between the ones who have been around awhile and the younger ones. Older vets have an intuition that comes from experience--and that intuition can save you hundreds of dollars on vet bills. Younger vets tend to rely heavily on expensive tests and since pet insurance is new, expensive, and doesn't always cover tests or preventatives, you can end up with a high bill very quickly. I am very aware of this with Metropet. It's come up twice. Both times, getting a second opinion from a more experienced vet was cheaper than (and as accurate as) the tests and procedures Metropet wanted to do. That's not a complaint as much as an observation. If you have young pets and/or good pet insurance, these guys are great. Good with animals and people, average price, clean facilities, etc. If you have an older pet or a pet with health problems, they may not be the vet for you unless you have some kind of coverage.

First of all, thanks for the kind words about MetroPet, our staff are our best asset. Progressive, diagnostic-based medicine is the current gold standard of care, and we're proud that our Doctors practice that way! It is the best way to determine what is going on and to tailor the treatment to the specifics of the case. There are a number of diagnoses made by both Doctors at MetroPet that would not have been possible without the tests that we run. In fact, a number of clients have come to us specifically because another clinic was treating based on a hunch and not getting to the root of the problem. Hunches sometimes get it right, but we believe that when it comes to your family members, we want to give the BEST medicine the first time. If cost is a concern, please let us know and we can work with your budget.

I can hardly believe it is almost 5 years since Dr. Alice took over leadership at MetroPet, and I am thrilled at what a great job she is doing for our best fur friends. Dr. Alice and Dr. Kim are loving, caring and competent veterinarians. Dr. Alice has improved the hospital in many ways, including laser surgery, laser therapy, digital x-rays, advanced dentistry, pocket pet and exotic pet medicine, taking the practice to the next level. MetroPet is the only clinic offering digital x-rays in the Berea area!! I am also amazed that 2016 will be the 30 year anniversary of MetroPet. I really miss the great pet parents and their pets, as well as the wonderful staff. And of course I will continue to trust the doctors and staff at MetroPet with the health of my own pets! Sincerely, Dr. Wiley

I recently took my cat, Simon, to MetroPet animal Hospital for his check up and rabies shot. The personnel there are gracious, kind and truly love animals. They made Simon feel relaxed and safe. Some of the employees have been there for a long time which I appreciate as it is relaxing going in and knowing the people I get to see. I have been taking my pets to MetroPet for over 30 years and have no plans to change. Appointments can be made without a long wait, and they have convenient office hours. Shortly after Simon's appointment, I received emails containing Dr. Alice's office visit summary as well as Simon's blood work results. I trust Simon's health care to the staff at MetroPet Animal Hospital without any reservations, as I also did when Dr. Wiley owned the practice.
