Debra Rakes DVM

I am a veteran of the U.S. Army. I received my B.S. in Medical Technology from the University of Maryland @ Baltimore. In 2005, I graduated with my doctorate from the University of Georgia and moved to Florida. I began working in a mixed animal practice but then shifted my focus to primarily dogs and cats. I have been with Live Oak Animal Clinic since April of 2014. In October of 2016, Dr. Roberts and I purchased the practice from Dr. Shearer. My free time is spent exploring Florida parks and beaches with my husband of 30 years. If you happen to catch me at home, I would be surrounded by my three grandchildren.
