Dr. Bocknek studied Marine Biology in Santa Cruz California for 3 years before coming to Guelph where he graduated from the Veterinary College in 1993.
Dr. Bocknek has spent the last 23 years practicing small animal medicine, with a special focus in ophthalmology, ultrasound, dermatology, and animal behavior. He also enjoys teaching children of all ages about animal care and veterinary medicine. He is available for class or group talks as well as career day lectures. As a child growing up with dyslexia and dysgraphia, Dr. Bocknek has a unique insight into the challenges faced by kids with special needs.
When he is not in the clinic you can find him snowboarding with the kids, torturing the family with his saxophone, or running with his wife Amber.
