Rachael's Profile

Dr Rachael Butler BSc (Hons.imm) BVetMed (Hons) MRCVS

Director and Veterinary Surgeon

Telephone: 01825 766006
Email: Rachael@theforestvet.co.uk

Rachael is a very enthusiastic and personable veterinary surgeon that has a direct and caring approach to her practice. Rachael originally was brought up on her family’s dairy farm in Fletching where her passion for becoming a vet originated.

She qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 2005 with a first class degree in Immunology which led her to the Royal Veterinary College, London in 2010. Having qualified in her degree in veterinary medicine with first class honours, she worked in a small animal practice in Sussex before deciding to open her own practice in 2015.

Rachael has a special interest in both soft tissue surgery and orthopaedics and is in her final year of a BSAVA post graduate certificate specialising in small animal surgery. She has also started her certificate in small animal internal medicine this year which is enabling us to improve our internal medicine hospitalisation service and our oncology service. Rachael lives with the practice mascot Bertie who has inspired the creation of the Forest vet and a new naughty patterdale Cecil.
