Robert O. Marold, D.V.M. (retired)

Although Dr. Bob was born in Milwaukee, he calls Brookfield home. A graduate of Brookfield Central, he went on to attend the University of Wisconsin at Madison, before receiving his degree in Veterinary Medicine from Kansas State.  After graduation Bob joined his father's veterinary practice at the State Street Dog and Cat Hospital in Milwaukee.  While working there, he also worked as a consultant for the Milwaukee County Zoo, where he acquired a keen interest in exotic animal medicine. Of course, he enjoys the general medicine of dogs and cats (especially skin and eye probems).  Because he so enjoys what he is doing, his philosphy is "if an animal is ill, it needs to be seen".

Dr. Bob is married to Diane and they enjoy hanging out with their five grandkids.
