That is why she has started her behavior centered fear-free veterinary practice. Where one of our goals is for patients to like their vet and vet staff so that when they hurt we can treat them more quickly and effectively. This helps the veterinary team to get them on the way to health faster and easier.
Dr. Rachael is the owner and practicing veterinarian at Prairie Animal Hospital. She graduated with her bachelors in Science from Iowa State University and earned a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State University’s Veterinary College in 2005.
After graduation, Dr. Rachael practiced veterinary medicine throughout the United States as a Navy wife. In 2011, Dr. Rachael and her family returned home to just outside Peoria, IL to be closer to her family.
In her “spare” time she loves to garden hike, ride her bike and go horseback riding with her three children and husband. She currently has six furry family members which include one dog (Charlie) and five cats (Marigold, Pierre, Peanut, Sister, and Bushy.)
Dr. Rachael loves preventative medicine and has a special interest in urgent care medicine.

Sam is a Peoria native who has been with us since May. After high school, he joined the Army and was stationed in Washington state for 3 years. He moved back to Illinois in 2015 to pursue his bachelor’s degree in Integrative Biology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and complete his service in the Illinois Army National Guard. He is currently applying for vet school. In his spare time, Sam enjoys TV and spending time with his beloved cat, Roxanne.
Spencer is 7 years young. He first bought this clinic by faking his heart disease and possibly contacting the TV lawyers, however he will not confirm or deny how he got his catnip treat money. He quit his first home and doc offered him a job saving him from boredom at the shelter. He definitely knows who owns the place. He has spent most of his life “working” as door greeter at the clinic or trying to steal patient’s treats. He has lots of experience with lots of other pets and treats them all with the same “are you going to eat that?” stare.
His hobbies include professional napping, disapproving stares, and eating as many times a day as possible. Garfield is his personal hero. When you come see us there’s a good chance he will be there to greet you in the lobby.
