Dr. Mark Milwicki, B.V.Sc. - M.R.C.V.S.
I grew up in South Africa and graduated from the University of Pretoria in 1978. The school is known as Onderstepoort, which literally means "under the paw". After working in a small animal practice in Cape Town for a year, my wife, Joy, and I traveled to Europe and finally settled in England where we remained for three years.
I became a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and practiced in a small village about thirty miles south of London. I was a real "James Herriot", spending a lot of time on the farms caring for cows, horses, pigs and any other animal that came my way.
Finally, in 1983, we arrived in New Jersey and I became the owner of the Marsh Hospital for Animals in 1984. Today the practice is a busy three-veterinarian hospital in Verona utilizing many different highly skilled specialists, all of whom help us provide our best friends with excellent health care. We strongly believe in practicing preventative medicine and are fortunate to have many pet owners in our area that consider their pets to be "part of the family."

Dr Kevin Kicker, DVM
Dr Kevin Kicker was raised in America’s dairyland of North Western Wisconsin. His passion for cheese and veterinary medicine has never waned as he traveled from Wisconsin, to Missouri, and now New Jersey.
In Wisconsin, Dr Kicker grew up with cows, horses, chickens, cats, and dogs. This interest in a variety of animals persisted while he attended the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, majoring in animal science and through his early acceptance to veterinary school and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Veterinary Medicine.
Dr Kicker’s broad interest served him well when he moved to Missouri to begin practicing as a mixed animal veterinarian. While in Missouri he practiced on anything that could make it to the door whether small or large. During his years in Missouri Dr Kicker changed his primary focus to dogs and cats.
Given an opportunity to move to New Jersey, Dr Kicker was very excited to join Marsh Hospital for Animals in the summer of 2017. He is thrilled to get to know you and your pets. Feel free to ask him about cheese, Wisconsin, his cat Spaghetti, or rock climbing and you are sure to make quick friends.
