Dr. Steven Metz has been a veterinarian in Shelburne for 37 years and has decided it is time for a change.

...
Shelburne Veterinary Hospital and Dr. Metz have quite a long history together. Dr. Metz moved to the greater Burlington area 37 years ago from Warwick, R. I. where he worked as one of five veterinarians in a large hospital. There he often worked with the animals at the nearby Roger Williams Park Zoo, where he had many unique opportunities, such as stitching up an ostrich, and clearing up the conjunctivitis in an elephant's eye. However, Dr. Metz always aspired to open his own practice, and after three years in Rhode Island, he began looking around Northern New England for an ideal location for his practice and his family.
Dr. Metz soon decided that the greater Burlington area was the best option for his practice and "Shelburne seemed like a lovely community," he said. Dr. Metz literally built his Shelburne business from the ground up. He says he was the architect, the contractor, and the construction supervisor for the building. He continued to work part time in Rhode Island as he grew his practice in Shelburne, traveling back and forth between Vermont and Rhode Island each week.
In his 37 years in Shelburne, Dr. Metz said he has seen first, second, and sometimes even third generation families and their pets. In his practice he has continued to do unusual things; he has extracted Aaron the boa constrictor from a guitar without taking the guitar apart, treated a 600-pound Bengal tiger with hepatitis, removed a tumor from a family's goldfish, in addition to caring for the community's many beloved four-legged family members.
Now Dr. Metz is going to pursue his passion for riding motorcycles, and he will continue to practice avian and exotic animal medicine. Dr. Metz also hopes to write a book about how a young boy (himself) at the age of six and afraid of dogs later became an animal lover, as well as include an explanation of what veterinarian education is all about and what it takes to be a vet. He also intends to get a bit of rest and relaxation.
"I am not retiring from practice," stated Dr. Metz emphatically. "I will be in the area, and will practice avian and exotic animal medicine."
Metz went on to say that, "It has been a rare privilege and a lifetime experience in helping people with their family member companions.
