Dr. Jennifer Bloss is co-owner of Brook-Falls and a full time veterinarian. She grew up in Wauwatosa and Cedarburg and like many young people, was inspired by the heart- warming stories of James Herriot and knew she wanted to be a veterinarian.
Dr. Bloss graduated from the University of Wisconsin -Madison with a degree in wildlife ecology in 1985 and a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine in 1989. While in veterinary school she worked with sandhill cranes to develop safer anesthetic protocols for birds and this sparked her love of avian medicine.
Dr. Bloss started practice in Northern Indiana before moving back to Wisconsin to be near her extended family. In 2007, she and Dr. Follett purchased the Brook-Falls Veterinary Hospital. Under their guidance the practice has grown from very humble beginnings and moved into a brand new hospital building in 2012. Her practice concentrates on avian, reptile and exotic small mammals. She enjoys the challenge of caring for these unique pets, and loves providing care for dogs and cats — the very same animals she grew up with. She also enjoys getting to know entire families and watching their children grow along with their family pets.
Dr. Bloss is active in the community. She is a boy scout veterinary explorer post leader and a Sunday school teacher. She presents to many children- kindergarten to high school, about the veterinary career that inspires her. She lectures frequently to bird, exotic mammal and reptile clubs in the area, and has also lectured at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin on exotic animal care.
Dr. Bloss and her husband have 2 school age children. Rounding out their family are a pionus parrot, 2 parakeets, 2 dogs and a dearly loved senior kitty who was there at the start of their family. When she is not working at the hospital, Dr. Bloss and family can be found at area soccer games, swim meets, or exploring the highways and by-ways of Wisconsin on their Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
