In this episode I chat eye heath with Veterinary Ophthalmologist Dr. BrIan Marchione. Many may even know there is such a specialty as veterinary ophthalmology, I didn't, until my own dog chance was having a reoccurring issue with his left eye that we couldn’t quite figure out. Not only is there such a thing, but they play an important role in our pups health and wellness. We chat about some common eye issues in dogs and how they can affect dogs of all ages, how you can recognize if its time to seek emergency care for your pup and how we can be more mindful of our dogs overall eye health.
Dr. Brian Marchione graduated from UC San Diego with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and cell biology in 2001. He attended veterinary school at Colorado State University, graduating in 2007 and went on to complete his internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Advanced Veterinary Care Center. Following completion of his residency in Ophthalmology at Animal Eye Care Centers, Dr. Marchione became board certified in Ophthalmology in 2011. Dr. Marchione served as ophthalmology department head at VCA West Los Angeles for 8 years until recently starting his own mobile ophthalmology practice. Dr. Marchione also serves on the Los Angeles Zoo medical advisory board.
