There aren’t enough stars!


As horse owners well know, a good vet is worth his weight in gold. Dr. Mettauer’s approach to equine medicine is spectacular, and his “stall side” manner just can’t be beat. Open, up front communication. Honesty. Confidence. The entire team at Southeast Texas Equine are exactly what our industry needs more of!

Late 2017 my stud colt was faced with what could have been a catastrophic injury. Many vets would have taken one look at him and suggested he be euthanized. Dr. Mettauer jumped into treatment immediately, holding nothing back, and giving my guy every possible chance at recovery that he could offer. Through this stay at Southeast Texas Equine I was able to get honest, thorough updates on his progress, current treatments, set backs, and overall care. Never once did I feel as if my inquiries were a bother, even after hours. Today, I have a SOUND colt who is back under saddle, and a huge place in my heart for Dr. Mettauer and his team!

The Southeast Texas Equine team takes the time to build a relationship with their clients. It’s a small town, small team, big family business.

Thank you, guys!! For everything you do!

We love Dr Mettauer & his staff!

He’s passionate & understanding at whatever issue you may have with your pets. We used him as 2nd opinion over a year ago on our horse & now he’s the only vet we use. He’s well worth the hour drive to get great equine care. Thank you!
