A veterinary hospital employee arrived at a San Anselmo pet hospital Tuesday morning to find it had been burglarized, police said. Just before 8 a.m. an employee reported that the Ross Valley Veterinary Hospital, located at 190 Sir Francis Drake Blvd., back door was unlocked and several controlled substances had been taken from their locked cabinet, police said.
Controlled substances such as hydrocodone, hydromorphone, ketamine, morphine and Euthasol were discovered missing as well as other medications kept in the cabinet, police said. No computer equipment or other valuables were taken. Euthasol is used in veterinary medicine as a humane, painless and rapid euthanasia for dog.
Police said the drug has no value as a recreational drug and is highly dangerous for humans. If the cache of drugs is found, police should be notified immediately and the drugs should not be handled, police said.
