Framingham Animal Hospital - Our Doctors

Dr Susan Rabaut
Dr Rabaut graduated from Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1968. In 1975 she became the owner of Framingham Animal Hospital, after purchasing it from Dr Greene. For years she was active in the Mass Veterinary Medical Association serving on several committees, and as President of the Association in 1999. She was the recipient of the MVMA Distinguished Service Award in 1999 and the Tufts University Henry Childers Award for her educational contributions to Tufts veterinary students in 2006. This past June 2018 she celebrated 50 years in practice. She loves all outdoor activities, winter and summer, especially the “quiet” sports. Her goal in future is to continue to share her extensive veterinary experience and skills with her associates and help them as they take over more of the active caseload at the practice. Dr Rabaut has a large family including 20 nieces and nephews and 17 great-nieces/nephews, and will be taking more time to enjoy them in the coming years.
