About Westfield Veterinary Group

Deep Roots 

Dr. Richard Maus was destined to be a veterinary practice owner. His ambition and talent were evident early on, with his peers in veterinary school voting him mostly likely to own a practice. He fulfilled that prediction in 1985 when he purchased a northern New Jersey practice that had been operating since the 1940s—a strong foundation on which Westfield Veterinary Group, the region’s leader in full-service general veterinary care has been built.


For years, Westfield Veterinary Group’s home was a repurposed farmhouse. With a close-knit team and an approach that prioritized treating clients like family, the community grew to trust this special kind of veterinary hospital—with succeeding generations of pet owners continuing to rely on the practice for high-quality primary care and around-the-clock emergency care. It’s an approach that has generated extraordinary loyalty among the region’s pet owners and veterinarians alike.


The community’s trust in Westfield Veterinary Group has fueled tremendous growth. The practice has evolved from a single doctor to a thriving entity with 60-plus dedicated team members, and a state-of-the-art hospital facility housing next-generation equipment and an onsite laboratory. And now, Westfield remains on the forefront of respected, responsive veterinary care as it moves its emergency operations to a brand-new facility in Union in 2018, expanding its primary care practice with this second location.
