  • June Brooks, DVM, Owner

    I have wanted to be a veterinarian since before I knew the word for this profession.  Now I have the best job in the world. I am a 1993 graduate of the University of Wisconsin - School of Veterinary Medicine.  Before opening Northside Animal Hospital in 2006, I explored many aspects of veterinary medicine by working in small animal practice, feline practice, and emergency medicine.  I am proud to call the Northside of Madison home.  In my free time, I enjoy watching or attending Badger sports, gardening, painting, and spending time with my family, friends, and pets.
