Dr. Rachel McKague – Medical Director

Dr. Rachel McKague, a graduate of Colorado State University, has been at Animal Health Services since the summer of 2013. Growing up, Dr. McKague was an avid Dressage and indoor Polo competitor which helped to foster her strong interest in equine medicine. This led to her attending a prestigious 3- month externship at Peterson & Smith Equine Reproduction Center in Florida, and graduating with a bachelor degree in Equine Science from CSU in 2009.

Dr. McKague completed the VetStart program at CSU, which guaranteed her admission to veterinary school with guidance from renowned veterinary specialists in the industry. This esteemed program only admitted 5 applicants per year. Throughout veterinary school her education was further enhanced with her experience as a student technician at the James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital in the Radiology, Anesthesia, and Equine medicine departments. It was through this experience, that she decided her passion was practicing small animal medicine, primarily cats and dogs.

Dr. McKague fosters an interest in internal medicine and “complicated” cases. She continues to enjoy advancing her clinical skills at Animal Health Services. She is originally from Colorado, but since being in AZ she doesn’t miss the snow. In her free time she enjoys traveling, socializing with friends, exploring new restaurants, and live music.
