Dr. Berkshire's regular hours of availability are Monday to Thursday, 9 am to 5 pm and Friday and Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm. Ideally, 1-2 days or more notice in scheduling appointments is preferred, but Dr. Berkshire understands this is not always possible and even same day appointments may occasionally be seen. He will do his best to accommodate you, but please understand this is not an emergency service. There are no additional fees charged for same day appointments scheduled within regular hours of availability.
There is an option for afterhours appointments based on availability. For afterhours housecalls outside of regular hours (see above), additional fees apply. Dr. Berkshire will make every effort to be available for you and your pet, however, due to other work and personal commitments this is based on availability.
If your pet is in a state of emergency and Dr. Berkshire cannot be reached immediately, please contact your regular veterinarian, one of the hospitals listed in the contact page of this website or Vancouver Animal Emergency and Referral Centre at 604-879-3737.
Afterhour’s Fee: $85 and up
