Clinical Assistant Professor | Tufts Veterinary Field Service | Woodstock, Conn.
A Connecticut native, Dr. Rachael Gately works at Tufts Veterinary Field Service, where she is a clinical assistant professor and member of a 10-doctor team providing large animal clinical service while educating fourth-year veterinary students. Her daily activities at TVFS include dairy cattle herd work, small ruminant general practice, and all avenues of theriogenology. Dr. Gately earned her DVM from Texas A&M University in 2012, after which she completed an internship at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University. For more than 25 years, she has raised nationally competitive breeding sheep, which is the root of her passion for small ruminant advanced reproductive techniques. Dr. Gately currently splits her small ruminant ART work between seed stock producers and researchers producing transgenic models to study human genetic neurologic diseases.
