Dr. Seth Williams

Dr. Williams is a born and bred St. Louisan. In 2021, he fulfilled his dream of establishing MetroVet. Dr. Williams completed his undergraduate degree from the University of Miami and went on study veterinary medicine at the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine. He is especially passionate about preventative medicine, surgery, nutrition, and strengthening the human-animal bond.

When not practicing, Dr. Williams is an avid ice hockey player and golfer (though he won’t be seen on the PGA tour quite yet) and is a die-hard Miami Hurricanes fan. His family is his most prized possession – he and his wife, Becca, have two young boys. His family is completed with two four-legged children Cane, the Golden Retriever, and Chase, the Cockapoo.


Dr. Emily Goyda

Dr. Emily Goyda is a St. Louis native who attended the University of Missouri, where she received both her undergraduate degree in animal science and her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. She’s thrilled to be a part of the MetroVet team and to help further MetroVet’s mission of providing high-quality, compassionate, and collaborative care to her patients and their owners. Her main interests include preventative medicine and nutrition, dentistry and surgery, internal medicine, and behavior. Above all else, Dr. Goyda is thankful to have the opportunity to help owners and their pets have long, happy, healthy lives together and strives to create a trusting, empathetic relationship with all her clients and patients.

Dr. Goyda grew up in Kirkwood and currently lives in Dogtown with her four dogs (she acknowledges that she’s completely crazy) named Izzy, Chewy, Olivia, and Hank, and her cats, Tory and Biscuit, who are all spoiled rescues (and also her husband, Ryan). Her favorite things outside of veterinary medicine are traveling, hosting friends and family, eating good food (please send her all of your restaurant suggestions, and she’ll gladly share hers), and Trader Joe’s.
