We require a senior screen blood panel for any animals over 8 years old. We cannot schedule an appointment for senior pets unless the owner has agreed to obtain a senior screen blood panel. We offer this service at our veterinary clinic

The final outcome for my pet is entirely up to the discretion of the East Bay SPCA.There is no guarantee that my pet will be re-homed.If my pet cannot be re-homed, East Bay SPCA has full and complete authority to humanely end the life of my pet.If euthanasia is determined, I can elect to be notified and will retrieve my pet within 24 hours of notification.
