Today We Welcome Dr. Eduardo Mardones to the Brooklyn Park Pet Hospital!

We are happy to have Dr. Mardones join our BPPH team!  We asked him to write a little bio of himself so we can all get to know him and his background:

I was born in Santiago Chile and grew up in the southern part of the country in a small farming area called Valdivia.  After high school, I began my Veterinary training at Universidad Austral de Chile.  I chose the veterinary field because of my interest of medicine and animals.  While in Veterinary School I won a scholarship to attend Virginia Tech University for a small animal clinical rotation; this is where I fell in love with the United States.  I earned my DVM degree from Universidad Austral de Chile in 2001.  After I graduated I participated in an international education program through the University of Minnesota where I was stationed in Kentucky working with horses for 6 months and attended UMN.  In 2004 I moved to Minnesota working at a local veterinary hospital in Bloomington; I worked my way up until I passed the necessary Veterinary exams to be licensed in the United States.  I enjoy Veterinary Medicine because I like making a difference in the lives of my patients and their families.

I’m married and have two children, Benjamin (3) and Vivian (1), and a Golden Retriever named Olive (7).  We currently live in St. Paul.  I love Minnesota because of the four distinct seasons, Minnesotans are nice, the immense park systems, and the overall quality of life that Minnesota provides.  In my free time I enjoy participating in sports such as skiing, snowshoeing, biking, volleyball; however, lately I spend most of my free time at the Children’s museum, indoor playgrounds, the Minnesota Zoo and the dog park with my family.

I look forward to meeting you and your pets at Brooklyn Park Pet hospital.
