Safety Practices During COVID-19

We have implemented safety protocols to continue to see patients while still practicing physical distancing to keep our staff and community safe. When you make an appointment, our team will go over this new process with you. 

If a you have COVID-19 symptoms we ask that you designate someone else to bring your pet and let our team know in advance so that proper safety precautions with animal handling can be ensured due to animals potentially carrying the virus on their coat/collar/carrier. Appointment details and treatment plans can still be completed with the client on the phone.  

Available Services

We are still providing services and taking appointments for anything that may be causing your pet pain or discomfort as well as for all wellness and preventative care.  

Routine vaccines are available by appointment only.

We appreciate everyone being understanding during this time as we protect our team and the community while providing the essential animal care that is needed.  

Confused about coronavirus and your pets? Watching the news and reading reports online can be confusing and scary. What we do know about coronavirus (COVID-19) and our pets is there is no evidence of companion animals catching or spreading COVID-19.

Meet Our Veterinarians


Gwen Gadd, D.V.M.

East Bay SPCA Staff Veterinarian
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.


Nozomi Watanabe, D.V.M.

East Bay SPCA Staff Veterinarian
Dr. Watanabe is a Bay Area native, and graduated from veterinary school at University of California, Davis in 2006. She enjoys performing surgeries as well as meeting and playing with her dog and cat patients! She has two cats (Snowshoe and Milkyway) and one dog (Tofu). Dr. Watanabe spends her free time scrapbooking, rock climbing, hiking, and going on new adventures with her family.


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.
