MCKENZIE VET – LOCALLY OWNED SINCE 1988



McKenzie Veterinary Services (MVS) is nearly 30 years old! The clinic was started in 1988 by Dr Dave Kirby when he partnered with North Douglas Vet Clinic to create a co-operative business arrangement unique to Victoria. He purchased Pacific Mobile Vet Clinic, now the city’s oldest house call practice a year later.

Dr Kirby sold the practices to Dr Malcolm Macartney in 2004. Five years later, Dr Macartney purchased North Douglas Vet clinic and it was amalgamated with MVS.

In June of 2016, two long time associates, Dr Diane Cruickshank and Dr Helen Rae purchased MVS and Pacific Mobile when Dr Macartney retired. The two companies were amalgamated in June of this year. You will currently see references to Pacific Mobile but our intention is to phase out that name. House calls will simply be a service offered by MVS.

Over the past 29+ years we have grown considerably and now employ a staff of approximately 45 individuals dedicated to providing the same quality, personalized care MVS built its reputation on. We would like to thank all of the great people and pets that we have met along the way!
