Dr. Metzger and his Longhair Dachsund, Beryl.

RainbowVeterinaryHospitalwas purchased three years ago by Dr. Timothy Metzger from the retiring Dr. David Wuele. Dr. Metzger has many years of experience and has been the surgeon for six hospitals. Since his three years of ownership of the practice,RainbowVeterinaryHospitalhas been awarded recognition by “BEST IN LA” and “TALK OF THE TOWN.” The Hospital has also scored extremely high ratings on various internet sites.

Dr. Metzger is a graduate of UC Davis and did an internship with the Mass SPCA. He has three years of post graduate education, and is the past president of the Southern California Veterinary Medical Association. He is aggressively righting any questionable practices of his predecessor. Dr. Metzger practices textbook medicine and diagnoses via evidence-based medicine. In a compassionate and caring manner, he delivers the best treatment that the client chooses.

A full-service hospital, Rainbow Vet is open 6 days a week from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays. Appointments are scheduled all day. And they do it all: from vaccines and puppy care to orthopedics and cancer therapy. The hospital is equipped with all the latest toys and technologies such as Digital X-Ray, Ultrasound, Endoscopes, and a full house lab. Dr. Metzger has recently remodeled the work area and is in the process of updating the reception area.

What makes this hospital great is its staff. Shoni and Mary run the front desk, and Hugo and Fernando are the technicians. Jan, in the back, is the resident IT person and bookkeeper. They also use technicians-in-training fromABCSchool. The careful and caring handling of your pet is their primary goal.

Dr. Hardy joined the staff six months ago and is a dental specialist in training. Presently finishing his post-graduate work, he performs routine cleaning as well as other major advanced procedures including root canals and oral surgery.

Dr. Johnson is a Professor of Radiology at Western School of Vet Medicine inPomona. He performs ultrasound and reviews X-Rays.
