Veterinarian Norman Brooker

Born and raised in central Iowa, Dr. Brooker attended Iowa State University and received a B.S. in Zoology in 1980 before his veterinary medicine degree in 1984. After a nearly 2 year stint as both a large and small animal doctor, Dr. Brooker decided to concentrate on pet practice. He began at the Hobart Animal Clinic in 1986. Dr. Brooker doesn't have any particular specialties in practice, but likes to consider himself a "jack of all trades" and is not afraid to admit that he likes cats. Dr. Brooker has been married to his wife, Brenda, since 1979. They have three children: Nathan, Benjamin, and Alyssa. His family is usually sharing their house with at least three cats and two dogs. They have also had the occasional other furry, feathered, or scaled pets. Other interests include just about anything that can be done outside, and especially hiking/backpacking in the mountains.
