Dr. Matthew Sobon

I came to the exciting world of veterinary medicine as a second career. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-School of Veterinary Medicine in 2006. My first career was in Computer Science and I worked in the printing industry for 16 years as an electronic graphic designer. During college, I met my wonderful wife, Lynn and we have three young adult children. We are in the process of becoming empty nesters…at least from human children! My wife works as a hospice nurse in the SE Wisconsin area. Our home has always been full of many animals. Currently we have “down-sized” to two dogs and six cats.

I joined New Berlin Animal Hospital in early 2009. Teaching new pet owners is very rewarding and I especially enjoy all the puppies and kittens. Additionally, I have a special interest in surgery. I am particularly good at fixing cranial cruciate ligament ruptures (a common orthopedic injury).

My family and I enjoy biking and camping. I am part of recreational soccer league and only occasionally come to work with visible injuries! I also dabble in woodworking and photography. I am seldom without my camera since you never know when the “perfect shot” will present itself.
