Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value

Dr. Metcalf is one of the best vets I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He was able to see my 15 year old cat the next day when a serious health issue happened. He helped me formulate a holistic approach to healing her, and during the visit he gave her acupuncture, laser treatment and a spinal adjustment. His gentle approach calmed her and she was visibly more relaxed with each adjustment. I will continue to recommend him to anyone in need of a professional and intuitive vet who truly understands the needs of each animal!

My senior kitty, Magnum, was limping and painful from arthritis. A different veterinarian had prescribed him painkillers - but they made him loopy and didn't seem to take away the pain. I had heard about Dr. Metcalf's acupuncture and tried it. After 3 treatments Magnum is no longer limping and is back to his old loving self. Dr. M has such a gentle touch animals. Magnum purred and was very relaxed and comfortable during his treatments. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and highly recommend Dr. Metcalf.

Dr. Metcalf has been seeing my dog, Splatter (14.5 yr old Eng. Setter X), for about a month now because of severe arthritis in his spine, hips, and knees, and for nerve damage in his right rear knee and leg. Dr. Metcalf has performed electro-acupuncture and chiropractic manipulations on my dog and has also started him on a regimen of Chinese herbal therapy. Since this started, Splatter's ambulation has significantly improved and his pain has been greatly eased. Dr. Metcalf is not only a highly trained practitioner but is also a very compassionate and caring individual. I highly recommend his practice to any whose pets are suffering from illnesses that cannot be helped by conventional medicine.
