    I am a dog walker and have had interactions with various vet clinics. I cannot stress how impressed I am with Metro Animal Hospital. They are always compassionate and professional. In my business, accidents happen. Dr Drabant and staff triaged a dog and nursed him back to health. I used to rush to the 24hr emergency clinic but have found Dr Drabant and staff more than capable of handling any emergency I may face. My dogs are not just my pets, they are my kids. I do not trust just anyone. Dr. Drabant is our vet and I highly recommend him to my clients. I have received positive feedback from those I referred.
