Dr Rachel Watson BVM&S MRCVS

Rachel graduated from Edinburgh University in 1992. She has always worked in companion animal practice ranging from 4 yrs at a busy Blue Cross charity hospital to smaller practices where everyone knew everything about both the clients and their pets. Most recently she spent just over 5 years working at a busy small animal hospital practice in Bishops Stortford. Rachel joined the Meldreth Village Vet team September 2014 and is looking forward to forming good relationships both with clients and their pets

Rachel enjoys all aspects of being a general all round small animal vet. She particularly enjoys the challenge of working cases up and surgery, especially abdominal and soft tissue surgery. She also likes rabbits, both actively trying to promote appropriate husbandry/care and also dealing with their problems

Rachel enjoys working in a team and being able to discuss cases as appropriate to ensure the best possible outcome for her patients.

Rachel has 2 oriental cats – Lily and Sweets who are a source of constant entertainment

Outside work Rachel likes tea shops, eating cake, drinking tea and nattering with friends. She also enjoys the great outdoors enjoying pretty much anything from dinghy sailing, mountain biking , hill walking to windsurfing. You may well see her on her road bike biking to work!
