New Clients Always Welcome!
We are the oldest and best-known house call practice serving Greater Victoria. Veterinarians and Animal Health Technicians from McKenzie Veterinary Services do home visits in our mobile vehicle for pets from Sooke to Sidney and all points in between. House calls are ideal for scared cats and dogs that dislike kennels, car rides, clinics or vets! Most pets are much less frightened when examined in their own homes.
We can perform a wide range of veterinary services on house calls, including:
-physical exams and consultations for dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, pocket pets and cage birds and chickens
– vaccinations and de-worming for dogs and cats with multiple pet discounts (10% for three or more pets)
– senior or geriatric pet health assessments
– diagnostic testing, blood tests, urine testing, and ECG’s
– toenail trims and grooming
– minor surgeries with sedation and local anesthetics
Euthanasia of your Pet at Home
We are frequently asked to perform home euthanasia for a pet. It is a blessing bestowed upon vets to be able to stop an animal’s suffering by ending their life with peace and dignity. This often emotional and difficult decision is much less stressful to both pets and owners when done in the comfort and privacy of your home. Pets are examined, sedated profoundly and when the owners are ready, an intravenous injection is given to peacefully end a pet’s life. We also provide cremation services, including private cremation where your pet’s ashes are returned in a tasteful urn. In addition, we can make a paw print which is a clay impression of your pet’s paw as a memento.
