Dr. Melissa Behrens, DVM

Dr. Behrens is a general practitioner who has been with Randolph Animal Hospital since August of 2004. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Pre-Veterinary Science from Michigan State University and received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from Michigan State University as well.

Asked about when she first decided to become a veterinarian, Dr. Behrens says she arrived home from preschool one day and announced to her parents, “I am going to become a veterinarian and travel to Africa.” She then added, “I saw the veterinarian part through, but I still would like to visit Africa!”

Dr. Behrens grew up in Walworth, Wisconsin, as an only child with her dog and cats acting as her brothers and sisters. Then at age 12, after the death of her dog and her interactions with the family’s veterinarian, she realized how much she truly wanted to devote her life to help the pets and the people who care for them so deeply. Dr. Behrens has seen and truly enjoys the bond that is shared between people and their pets and feels fortunate to play a small part in that amazing relationship.

Dr. Behrens is a pet owner with 2 dogs (Eloise and Otto) and 1 cat (“Just” Mike).

Beyond her veterinary work and caring for her pets, Dr. Behrens likes to hike and generally be in the great outdoors.
