Does your dog have an eye disease? Dr. Jonathan Pucket, clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at OSU’s Center for Veterinary Health Sciences, can help you answer that question. Pucket will present “Corneal Disease: Keeping the Window Clear” at the center’s Pet Care Seminar on Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 7 p.m. in the McElroy Hall Auditorium. He will discuss corneal conditions, which can affect vision in dogs, and how to treat them.
Pucket earned his DVM degree from Oklahoma State University and spent the following year at OSU completing a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery. He then went to Kansas State University where he completed a three-year residency in veterinary ophthalmology while earning his master’s degree in biomedical science. His research interests are corneal sensitivity and corneal surgery.
Pet Care Seminars are open to the public at no charge. Complimentary parking and light refreshments will be available for attendees. For more information, call (405) 744-7672.
