Dr. Inna Magner

DVM, CVA, CVTP
Image
Dr. Inna has been practicing veterinary medicine in the Bay Area since 2005. After completing a small animal internship in Sacramento, she worked as a general practitioner in a busy veterinary hospital in Daly City and worked as a relief veterinarian in several general practices.
In 2015, following her certification as a Small Animal Acupuncturist through the Chi Institute in Florida, she started a house call mobile service focusing on acupuncture, Chinese herbs, food therapy, integrative veterinary care, and geriatric care. She also became certified in Tui Na (Acupressure) through the Chi Institute and gained Fear Free certification.

Dr. Inna joined Animal Cove Pet Hospital in 2022 and is excited to incorporate the different therapeutic modalities she learned along with general medicine to improve and support the health and vitality of pets as well as strengthen the human-animal bond. Her passion is in pain management, geriatric care, client education, and integrative medicine while seeking sustainable ways to reduce the impact on the environment.

When not working, Dr. Inna likes to spend time with her family exploring the beautiful Bay Area. She also enjoys volunteering in her community and doing beach clean-ups.

Her fur babies are two rescue cats named Goose and Blueberry and a super energetic rescue dog named Amber.

Dr. Elise Sanchez

DVM
Image
Dr. Elise Sanchez, DVM, was born and raised in southern California. After moving to the Twin Cities to attend the University of Minnesota’s College of Veterinary Medicine (GO GOPHERS!), she traveled around the U.S.
She has experience working as a rotating intern at a specialty hospital, an emergency clinician, and a primary care veterinarian. She has even worked with some exotics. Through all that, she developed a love for preventive medicine and building relationships with her pet parents and patients. Dr. Sanchez is excited and committed to providing high-level veterinary care to all the fur babies that come in through the door at Animal Cove Pet Hospital!

When she’s not taking care of her pet patients, she and her husband have their hands full with a toddler, three cats and a parakeet. Nonetheless, she remains determined to find time to explore the Bay Area and all it has to offer.
