Veterinary Surgeon

Dr Rimante Butkute
Dr Rimante Butkute DVM MRCVS Veterinary Surgeon

Rimante Butkute, a Veterinary Surgeon from Lithuania, has many years of experience in small animal veterinary practice in both Lithuania and the UK. After qualifying as a veterinary surgeon, she subsequently started working in a busy small animal practice in Lithuania. She also did some wildlife work, whilst there. After a couple of years she decided to move to the UK. Initially she worked in multiple large multi-branch veterinary practices in Kent, but after a while she decided to move to the Surrey countryside. Rimante has done an Internship at the world-renowned Fitzpatrick Referrals, Oncology and Soft Tissue Surgery Hospital in Surrey, and has worked at a high-quality primary care vet practice in Surrey.

Over the last few years, she developed a strong interest in an integrated approach to veterinary medicine. Recently she pursued her dream of gaining some unique skills and knowledge in Western herbal medicine. Rimante approaches each patient as a whole, rather than as a patient with a specific disease, to make a plan accordingly. She is also a certified K-LASER technician and is currently working towards a post-graduate qualification in ‘Galen’ Myotherapy.

Rimante shares her home not only with her fiance Pete, but also with a Parson Russell Terrier called Spike and a gorgeous ginger cat called Rocky. She loves travel photography, reading inspirational self-development books, wildlife and conservation.
