Dr. Leah Vuksich was raised in and around veterinary medicine having a father who is a veterinarian. She fulfilled the dream she'd had since she was 6 years old when she graduated from the University of California, Davis in 2016. She has enjoyed practicing in Marin County for 4 years and feels fortunate to have settled here. Dr. Leah's special interests include brachycephalic (short-nosed) medicine, general preventive medicine, ophthalmology, ultrasound and surgery. When Dr. Leah is not at work, she enjoys playing music, hiking, gardening, and spending time with her husband, Mike, and their two Boston Terriers, Flick and Sullee. Dr. Leah is very excited to be joining the Alto Tiburon team in April of 2020.
