Smart, Sensible & Experienced Veterinary Care in NE Portland

At Heart and Soul (formally MetroVet), we provide high-quality veterinary care for pets needing same-day attention for their illness or injury. The demand for emergency veterinary care in Portland has grown exponentially in recent years, leaving pet owners with only one option when their pet needs immediate care: to wait at an emergency hospital for many hours until their pet can be seen. Safety measures put into place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have only exacerbated this problem, requiring pets and owners to sometimes wait up to 12 hours to be seen. Our urgent care clinic is here to provide the same exceptional care for these pets in a more timely manner.

Heart and Soul is locally owned and conveniently located in Northeast Portland. We’re passionate about serving our community by providing excellent care, extraordinary customer service, and a positive, respectful work environment. Our clinic is equipped with the latest medical technology including digital radiology, ultrasonography, and an in-house diagnostic laboratory.

"When my dog cut his leg at the park he needed help right away.  MetroVET's urgent care was just what we needed.  They saw us on a Sunday!  Everyone was so respectful and caring."

"Very warm and kind care received at the MLK & Killingsworth location-- super convenient for us too."

-Ken D.

"MetroVET truly is excellent. From the moment I booked the appointment to the time we left, everyone was incredibly kind, thorough, attentive and communicative. I’ve never had such a seamless and wonderful vet appointment! They handled our kitty with so much love that I left knowing I made the right decision to trust them with our sweet baby."

-Naamah P.

"If you come home from work and need to take your cat to the vet I highly recommend Metro Vet. They are open late which is the biggest blessing for us."

-Tami T.

"My cat had a bite on his face that I realized was infected late in the day on a Friday. My regular vet was booked, so I called MetroVET hoping to avoid a night in the ER.  They turned a night I was sure was going to be awful into probably the best possible scenario given the circumstances."
