For your Pet's surgery...Veterinary Surgeon Robin K. Moore, DVM
Dr. Robin K. Moore performs a wide range of surgery:
• Spay / Neuter Animal Services
• Soft Tissue Surgery
• Orthopedic Surgery
• Reconstructive Surgery
If needed, a referral to an appropriate specialist will be provided.
We use anesthetic protocols with pulse oximetry and apnea monitoring of anesthetized patients, to ensure maximum safety to those animals entrusted in our care. (This translates to expert nursing care and the most “pain free” surgery we can give to your pet!)
Oh, by the way… if your pet requires an extended stay due to a surgical procedure, we encourage family visits!
Microchip placement and identification for your pet is another of our specialties.
Can your lost pet find it's way back home... A microchip will make a difference!
Each year, thousands of pets go missing, and many don’t make it back home. Many pets (especially indoor pets) don’t wear collars or tags. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off and tags can become damaged and unreadable, so these forms of identification may not be enough to ensure your pet’s safe return. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely.
A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information. When a microchip is implanted, the pet owner is given a registration form to complete. Registering the number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery database. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. If a lost pet is picked up by animal control or found by a good Samaritan and presented to a veterinarian, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the identification number. A toll-free phone call to the pet recovery database alerts the microchip company that a lost pet has been identified. The pet owner can then be contacted and reunited with his or her pet!
Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens. Ask us about microchipping your pet today!
East Bay Animal Hospital Treatment Room
Our treatment room is a very busy place, with a variety of sounds, ranging from the hum of IV pumps, to the beeping of respiratory and heart monitors. This is where our critical care patients are monitored, surgical patients are prepared, and radiological and dental procedures are performed.
East Bay Animal Hospital takes great care in securing and maintaining your pet’s comfort while reducing stress due to stimulus in the treatment area. Should your pet require an extended stay for treatment, we would love for you and your family to visit as often as possible.
