Dr. Gwen Gadd is a card carrying, non-skiing Colorado native who decided to experience life in the Bay area. She graduated with her degree in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 1996. She enjoys all aspects of veterinary medicine and has treated everything from stray chickens and hedgehogs to the more conventional dogs and cats. On a personal level, Gwen loves getting lost with her dog Roo, photography, short story writing and pretty much anything that allows her to learn new things.

Dr. Rochelle Morrissey grew up in Berkeley, and attended the University of California, Davis for both undergrad and veterinary school. Following graduation, Dr. Morrissey spent several years practicing in the Bay Area, before relocating to Pennsylvania for the past 5 years. She is excited to have relocated back to the warmer California climate with her husband, daughter, and cat Domino. She enjoys small animal medicine and its varied challenges, particularly dermatology and ultrasound. When she’s not practicing she is an avid Oakland A’s fan, and also enjoys playing softball, skiing, and travelling.


Jeannie Grijalva, D.V.M.

East Bay SPCA Staff Veterinarian
Dr. Jeannie Grijalva hails from San Jose, California and attended Cal Poly, SLO for her undergraduate degree where she received a BS in Chemistry. She has always had an affinity for animals and she knew in her heart she wanted to be a veterinarian so she pursued her higher education at St. George’s University. Dr. Grijalva did her clinical year in Scotland at the Royal Dick Vet in Edinburgh where she had many interesting adventures including trying haggis. After graduating, she moved to Arizona and worked at a busy private practice for several years and came to three conclusions: 1. It was hot! 2. She missed her family and friends 3. Her heart belongs to California! She made her way back to northern California working in several other private practices, gaining more experience and knowledge while keeping things lively along the way. She feels lucky to work with the supportive crews of the East Bay SPCA and looks forward to having many new adventures while helping more pets than she dreamed possible. On her off time she likes to travel, hike, read and watch her cats wrestle though not necessarily in that order.

Spay and Neuter Tattoo

Starting on August 1st, 2016, the East Bay SPCA Theodore B. Travers Family Veterinarian Clinic, Dublin and Oakland Spay/Neuter Centers will all participate in “tattooing” shelter, rescue and client owned animals that are in our care for spay/neuter surgery.

Why a tattoo?

    • To identify that an animal no longer has internal reproductive organs (spayed or neutered). A scar at the site of a spay/neuter surgery does not necessarily mean the animal was fixed.
    • Quickly identify if an animal has been spay/neutered and avoid unnecessary surgery of the abdomen.

What does the tattoo look like?

    • A small, green, straight-line applied to the spay/neuter incision while the animal is under anesthesia.
    • Green ink is used because it can be recognized easily and cannot be mistaken for natural pigmentation. The tattoo ink does not increase the risk of infection.

Benefits of tattooing during spay/neuter surgeries

    • Helps animals avoid future unnecessary exploratory surgeries.
    • Discreet and painless, the tattoo is performed while the animal is still under anesthesia – does not require another procedure.

Rescue Groups or Clients

If you do not want to have your animal tattooed during the spay/neuter procedure, we recommend that you have the surgery performed at the veterinary hospital of your choice.
