  • "Metz Petz, the docs, and the entire staff are caring, competent and, most of all, compassionate human beings who understand our love for our pets. Throughout a history of care and expert grooming for our miniature poodle Reddog, he had nothing but warm, wonderful and professional handling by one and all here.

    During a recent medical crisis, Reddog got the quantity and quality of medical care that I associate with doctors for people. His issues sadly resulted in Reddog not making it, but I can tell you without fear of contradiction that he lived longer only because of the attention (and thoughtful follow-ups) shown by the medics and staff.

    Awarding five stars because it doesn’t let me award five hundred. Strongly, unequivocally recommended."
    Metz Petz came highly recommended to me by friends in the Animal Rescue Community...
    I took my 11 year old Pug...Hercules in today for a wellness check up and to establish a Veterinarian/Customer relationship.....Dr. Nathan Metz and all staff were...extremely knowledgeable, courteous and had excellent interpersonal skills!!!!! Dr. Nathan Metz definitely took time listening to my concerns...I really can see his love and compassion for animals and pets!!!!! The entire staff made us feel welcome!!! I definitely will be back with my other two boyz, Hachi and Capone...I am very happy to say Hercules enjoyed the visit as well and looks forward to seeing his new friends again!
    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!! DR. NATHAN METZ!!!!!!!!!!!"
  • "Both Dr. Metz are wonderful. Dr. Nathan treated my Rocky with such wonderful care and when the day came for him to be put to sleep, he made the process as bearable as possible. I will always be loyal to Metz Petz."
  • "My dogs love both vets here. They helped me figure out what my German Shepard pup needed as far as his diet because he was having horrible stomach problems. He is fine now."
  • "Best Avian Vet in Lima! All of you have gentle and loving hearts. My Sapphire loves the phone call reminder, just chirps until I replay it. Thank you for all you do."
  • "Our fuzzy child, a 170 lb +Neapolitan Mastiff Penny ended up in trouble during labor yesterday. She ended up having a c-section on the remaining 4 puppies. We now have 6 healthy, happy, wrinkly puppies. They explained everything to us, in detail throughout the entire process. Dr. Nathan & Dr. Melissa, Sterling, Casey, Joe and staff all stayed late with no complaints. We couldn't of asked for a more caring staff. Dr. Nathan, followed up again today as well. We appreciate everything you did for and saving Penny and the puppies. We recommend Metz Petz- they see all our fuzzy children. Thank you all so much!"
  • "Entire staff is very caring and treat you as though it is their pet and you are part of their family.
    Dr. Melissa and Dr. Nate, as well as the entire staff are super easy to talk to and have your pets well-being first and foremost in their mind."
  • "Dr. Nathan is the best vet ever- and the only one I trust for my dogs care. Kind, compassionate, amazing with pets. Easy to get along with- down to earth. Highly recommend!"
  • "Today we had to make the hardest decision a pet owner has to make. Dr. Nathan came to our home to assist with Cody's departure from this world. He was gentle and caring; he even waited until my wife was able to make it home before administering the medication. As hard as it was to do; Dr. Nathan made it tolerable for all of us. Cody simply fell asleep in his favorite place, next to the pool looking out over the backyard. Dr. Nathan, thank you for making that possible you are a true humanitarian."
  • "I can't say enough great things about Metz! Dr. Nathan and Dr. Melissa have been so wonderful with all my fur babies! More important, Dr. Nathan saved My bulldog's eye by acting quickly and providing professional knowledge for us! Thanks to all their wonderful staff for their hard work and dedication to our fur babies!"
