Where It All Began

In-Home Euthanasia was started in 2012 to serve a growing need in the community for affordable, professional in-home pet euthanasia for dogs and cats.

While in vet school, Dr. Maxfield was the Student Director of the Tufts Pet Loss Support Hotline, a student-run free hotline that provides counseling to those grieving the loss of a beloved pet. Students who work on the hotline undergo training in grief counseling as well how to talk to children about pet loss.
