About this business


Metropolitan Veterinary Center was established in 2012 by Dr. Kjerstin Jacobs. She founded the practice based on her observation that there was an unmet need for high-quality, reasonably priced medical and surgical care for Chicago’s beloved pets, not only on weekdays but on weekends and late evenings as well.

My first time taking my rescue dog was an absolute nightmare and left me feeling horrible about ever taking my dog to the vet. My second time around I decided to take him to metro vet and I’m so glad I did. Our tech was so patient and kind about my Donny’s nerves. This will definitely be our forever vet. If you’re looking for a place that will handle rescue dogs correctly this is your place.

I love this place! My go to docs are Drs. Jacobs and Natarajan. They are extremely personable, kind, patient, and most of thorough in their practice. The price point is very fair. All of the vet tech and front staff are very nice and patient with me :)

During the past fourteen years of mothering my beautiful sophisticated glamorous puggle Gwendolyn, I encountered many doctors for Gwendolyn's care.

During the first examination of my Gwendolyn, the manner in w... read more

We just moved to the area and brought Luna here. She was just finishing up her heartworm treatment and they did a great job of collecting all the appropriate information. Great experience and was still a smooth visit due to COVID protocols.
