Dr. Bock was raised on a farm in the Flint Hills, near Cottonwood Falls, Kansas. When he discovered that his round house curveball was not a ticket to the major leagues, he set his sights on a career in veterinary medicine. He graduated from Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine in 1974. After a year in mixed practice in Chillicothe, MO, he arrived at Welborn Animal Hospital, where he has practiced small animal medicine and surgery ever since. During the period of 1976 to 1990, he shared his small animal duties with a livestock market practice at the Kansas City Stockyards. Soft tissue surgery and internal medicine are what he enjoys most about practice.
He and his wife have two grown children and two grandchildren. They share their home with two beautiful, but lazy, golden retrievers. He also likes to travel, read, study history, and follow K-State athletics.
