Dr. Metzler's veterinary career began at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital in Seminole, Florida. He became part owner, and practiced there for 18 years. He opened his own practice in Safety Harbor, Florida in March 2003. After 10 years of steady growth, it was time to expand. The new Metzler Veterinary Hospital opened its doors in February 2013 in the Countryside area of Clearwater, Florida. The 5,000 square foot facility designed by Dr. Metzler, offers a full service hospital, as well as boarding, bathing, and grooming services.

Dr. Metzler has been taking care of my dogs one for five years now and the little guy Charlie for two almost now. My big guy Ray had seizures every time we would try to take him to office, finally Dr. Metzler said no more I will come to you, he has since then been few years now so we no longer have the worry of problems with Ray. Two years ago I got Charlie, he has made a couple visits to the office but most of the time when Dr. is here for Ray he will tend to Charlie as well. He has been a blessing to these dogs and myself, I no longer have to stress which means in the words of Caesar I also do not stress my dogs out.
I tell him every time he leaves the house I thank God for what he does......Dr. Metzler YOU ROCK,

Customer Testimonials

Dr. Metzler and his staff are the most caring and kind caregivers! I have total faith in them when I bring my beloved German Shepherd for his yearly visits and sick visits. I also have total peace of mind when I board him there when I go on trips. Wonderful place with a great and competent staff!


I love staying at Metzler Veterinary Hospital. My friend Ashley and the other staff members take good care of me. Highly recommend!!! The doctor also gives me health check ups and any shots I need. My mom and dad are very happy to have found Metzler Veterinary Hospital.


Outstanding practice. I had to put my beloved Jack down last Friday. Dr. Metzler & his staff were the most gracious and compassionate people I have ever come across. They explained everything and were there for us, but they also gave us as much alone time as we needed with our Jack. Everything was handled with such care. Thank you for making a heartbreaking time a little easier to bear.


I have no words for Dr. Metzler. They are AWESOME people. They made my sad experience very smooth. They are always with you. They taking care of your animal as their animal. Thank so much everything that you did for Buc.
