Rachael Saeger, DVM
Hi! I am Dr. Rachael Saeger, the newest addition to the teams at Metro Animal Hospital and Wittenberg Veterinary Clinic. My husband, Tim, and I just recently moved to the Merrill, WI area and are taking over his family’s homestead. I grew up in Las Vegas, NV before moving to Spokane, WA for my undergraduate studies, where I studied Biology at Whitworth University. I then attended vet school at the University of Minnesota, graduating in 2020. I previously worked at two small animal clinics in Minnesota, focusing on preventative care, as well as exotic animal medicine. I have particularly strong interests in animal behavior, dentistry, nutritional therapy, and aquatic animal medicine. At home, Tim and I have four kitties (Atticus, Gus, Checkers, and Otis), as well as an aquarium. We are hoping to start up a bit of a homestead/hobby farm in the next couple of years where the animal menagerie will continue.
