Fred Rader, DVM Dr. Rader is affectionately known by clients and staff as "Doc".  Everyone looks to Doc for his guidance and expertise based on his many years of experience.  Doc graduated from Ohio State Veterinary School in 1962.  He practiced in Lafayette, Indiana from 1962 until 1967 working with some small animals but concentrating on farm animals.  Doc moved to Long Grove in October of 1967 and founded Skycrest Animal Clinic.  For the first five years, while building the practice, he also worked as a relief Veterinarian in the Chicago area. Doc raised shelties and golden retrievers while his four children were growing up. He has since become well known far and wide for his expertise with Dobermans.  After practicing for 50 years, Dr. Rader enjoys spending most of the year in Florida with his wife Nancy and their dog Indy.
