Appointments are available weekdays to be scheduled between 9:00 A.M. and 6:00 P.M. Expect to spend at least one hour with the doctor. The minimal charge for an initial visit including exam is $200 with extra fees for services, diagnostics, and treatments. All charges are due at the time of service and can be paid by cash, check, or credit card. All existing veterinary records should be emailed or faxed to (415) 373-4176 prior to the appointment. This will allow Dr. Behrens to be best prepared for your housecall. Some pets are very outgoing with visitors. Others, especially sick cats, may hide under furniture. To make the most of your visit, it is recommended that these pets be enticed into a comfortable, enclosed space prior to the scheduled appointment. A large, thick towel that they have already been able to lay on may be helpful. Mood lighting, treats, and play are encouraged to set the right mood.
