Veterinarian - Owner
Dr. Rachel Keyser hails from Bourne, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. She received her undergraduate degree from Bowdoin College in Maine and graduated with honors from Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine in 1997. She is currently licensed to practice in New Hampshire, Maine, and Massachusetts, and is also a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association and the New Hampshire Veterinary Medical Association. Dr. Keyser purchased Winter Harbor Veterinary Hospital from Dr. Wing in January of 2018. She hopes to continue the hospital's great service to the community and its pets.
After graduation from veterinary school, Dr. Keyser started as a mixed animal practitioner, treating everything from dogs to horses and cows. She now concentrates on treating primarily dogs and cats, with a few "pocket pets" thrown in. She started working at Winter Harbor part-time in June 1997 and after a few years, became a full time associate and now, the new owner.
When she's not working, Dr. Keyser fills her time with activities with her two young daughters, Grace and Hope, and her German Shepherd, Raina. Last year they added a new member to the family - Trigger, a handsome orange tiger cat. They currently reside in Moultonboro. Rachel is an avid runner, but also finds time to squeeze in a Spin or Kick-boxing class. Her hobbies include gardening, scrapbooking, cooking, and spending time with her girls at the beach – lake or ocean.
