Welcome to Metropolitan Veterinary Hospital, serving the pet care needs of Tacoma, Washington and surrounding areas. Our hospital was founded on the principle of providing the highest quality medical and surgical care to pets in our neighborhood and offering the best client care in the region.  We strive to fulfill the veterinary expectations of pet owners who consider their pets valued family members.

In addition to providing superior veterinary medical, surgical services and cat boarding, we are committed to contributing to Tacoma's growth and redevelopment efforts as the city progresses toward becoming a major urban center within the Puget Sound region. Local artists' work is featured in our facility, and we invite you to stop in to peruse the rotating collection. In addition, watch for us at various community events that honor pets.

GOT MICE? We’ve got the girl for you!

Honey is an independent gal looking for her forever home. She's an athlete who enjoys hunting (mostly toy mice so far), being brushed, and lounging in windows.

Note: This kitty has a chronic respiratory condition that will need continued monitoring and may or may not need long-term medication. She also has a sensitive digestive system.

Honey is a special girl who needs someone willing to take on a cat who needs a little more patience and understanding than the average cat. She would prefer to not live with small children, and will need a slow introduction to other cats or dogs. Come meet this special lady today and see that she really is “sweet like honey”.
