Dr. Pennie Cooley
Dr. Cooley knew she wanted to be a veterinarian at the age of 13, when her horse became blind from recurrent uveitis. She rode her horse when visual and then the following year when blind, to World Championship Appaloosa English Pleasure titles. Her horse's blindness sparked her interest in veterinary medicine, and more specifically, veterinary ophthalmology.
She obtained a DVM degree from Washington State University, then traveled to New York for an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at Cornell University. This was followed by a residency in ophthalmology at The Ohio State University. In 1985, she was board certified by the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO). She returned home to Washington and practiced ophthalmology at the Animal Eye Clinic in Seattle. She opened the Eye Clinic For Animals in 1990.
She has authored or coauthored several articles in veterinary journals and textbooks, and is the recipient of several veterinary awards. She is a longtime member of ACVO, American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), Washington State Veterinary Medical Association (WSVMA) and served on the WSVMA board for several years.
She has had dogs, cats, horses, or alpacas all her life, and has found her calling by providing compassionate, high quality eye care for pets. When not caring for patients, she loves spending time on her small farm with her husband, daughter, dogs, horse, and rescue alpacas. She also enjoys hiking and golfing with her family.
