Dr. Maxfield provides a variety of services including:
*Appointments are available every day of the week except Fridays. Hours are 10 am to 5 pm. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate same day or emergency appointments.
Pet Loss Consultation
Dr. Maxfield will work with you to make the best decision for you and your pet. You may have questions about how to know “the right time ,” quality of life, or treatment options. These questions and any others can be discussed during a pet loss consultation
Pet loss consultations are provided by phone or video consult. If you’d like to schedule a consult, please contact us. A thirty minute consult can be scheduled for $100 (payable in advance). Because it’s important to be able to spend time discussing you and your pet’s situation, consults will be scheduled in the evenings after other appointments.
I am happy to serve central Massachusetts, northern Rhode Island and northeast Connecticut. Please use the map below to find your city and see the associated travel fee for it.
