Pet Loss Consultation
Dr. Maxfield will work with you to make the best decision for you and your pet.
Phone consultations are provided at no charge. Please call to discuss your pet and any questions you may have. Dr. Maxfield is very compassionate understanding the benefits of pet loss support.
Choosing in-home euthanasia is one of the most difficult decisions we will ever make for our pets. We can make this process less stressful by allowing our pets to stay at home, surrounded by familiar sights and smells and their loving family members.
In-home animal euthanasia for cats or dogs $250.
Please note that "same day" appointment requests will incur an additional $50 fee.
We are happy to serve most of Massachusetts & Rhode Island. Please use the map below to find your city and see the associated travel fee for it. Requests for appointments outside of the service area will be honored if time & schedule allows. There will be a $100 travel charge for any appointments outside of the regular service area.
