We Are A Green Business
We Are A Local Business
We Are Involved In Community Service
MetroPet Veterinary Clinic has been providing high quality medical care to the pets of Berea, Middleburg Heights and surrounding areas in Ohio for more than 26 years. Compassionate veterinary medicine in a comfortable family setting is our specialty. We truly believe that each and every patient should be treated as if
it were our own pet. In addition to dogs and cats, we also care for the smallest of pets like rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, reptiles, and birds. We work with local veterinary specialists to provide the best up-to-date medicine and recommendations. We attend continuing education training seminars and conferences to stay current and to keep you informed.
We also understand that everyone's financial situation is different and in this economy, businesses must change as well. That is why we frequently offer prescriptions for outside pharmacies, as well as competitive pricing with online pharmacies.
Finally, MetroPet has made a commitment to work with a wide variety of animal rescue groups and shelters to provide medical care for pets looking for their forever homes. Our entire team loves pets and we look forward to working with yours!
Located in Berea, we are just minutes away from most of Cleveland's western suburbs.
