Overnight Boarding Policy

24HourIntensiveCare

McKenzie Veterinary Services is a full-service veterinary facility. We are fully staffed during regular business hours and have a dedicated team providing care for all our hospitalized patients. After regular business hours, we do not have staff on site.We recommend that all patients requiring intensive overnight care and monitoring be admitted to Central Victoria Veterinary Hospital where 24 hr emergency and critical care can be provided.

Patients who do not require monitoring and care overnight may be boarded at McKenzie Veterinary Services. However, pets who remain in the clinic overnight will not be supervised. In general, we prefer that non-critical medical or post-surgery patients be sent home and monitored by their owners. Many pets recover better in their familiar home environment.

In situations where an owner prefers their pet stay in the clinic overnight we require them to read and sign a waiver regarding the risks of unmonitored overnight hospitalization.
