Sometimes emergencies and unexpected incidents can happen when you least expect it. We are available for you and your pet during our opening hours. Please see our opening hours displayed in upper left corner of the screen.
In case of after hours emergencies please call 250 475 2495 for the nearest 24 hour veterinary hospital.
Not all emergencies require critical care, but seriously ill pets truly require an elevated level of support. Similar to an ICU or CCU in a human hospital, our hospital’s advanced equipment allows veterinarians and specialists to monitor your pet’s condition while they keep close vigil and work together to ensure the best possible outcome. This level of care is available 24/7 until your pet is well enough to go home. Veterinarians refer patients to us for hospitalization and ICU care because we have the medical team and advanced technology to care for these sickest of pets round-the-clock.
Like people, pets seem to need medical attention at odd times, like in the middle of the night or on the weekends. If your pet is sick or injured day or night, we are here to help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Open 7 days a week, our practice is a full hospital facility offering a balanced holistic approach to pet’s health needs from traditional to complementary medicine. We offer a wide range of services to promote our patients’ good health, including patient examination, on site anesthesia, surgery, dentistry, radiology, nursing care, laboratory services, and a full pharmacy, including herbal medicines. Hillside Veterinary Hospital has been voted in the Top 3 Pet Clinics in Victoria every year since 2009.
McKenzie Veterinary Services is a multi person veterinary practice that is respected in the community. Our goal is to provide the best possible patient care and client services by maintaining a high level of knowledge through continuing education and by incorporating new technologies into our practice. Our practice recognizes the importance of teamwork and also values individual specialties. We work out of a space that allows us to develop our potential, but we are not so big that we lose the connection with our team, our clients and their pets.
