Dr. Dudley is committed to providing consultations and surgical procedures with minimal wait times. She is available to consult on any surgical cases presented to our animal hospital and will review radiographs as requested. Her hope is to help ensure a timely and seamless experience for all clients and their pets.
She has recently returned to Central Massachusetts, an area that she loves. In her free time, she enjoys hiking in the woods with her dogs as well as bicycling on the back roads of Princeton and Westminster.
