Thank you Ko’olau animal hospital for always going above and beyond for our pup! We have been coming for almost two years and they have been nothing but amazing to not only us but our dog as well. Dr. Asato is amazing and very knowledgeable, and everyone else in the clinic is super friendly and treats our dog as if he was their own! That is something I will always cherish!

Caring for your pet is our top priority. We provide the most advanced techniques to ensure your pet is comfortable during all procedures. We offer annual or semi-annual wellness exams, pediatric exams, senior exams and urgent care exams.

Thinking of spaying or neutering your pet? Koolau Animal Hospital can help you and your pet through this important procedure with minimal distress.   

Spaying and neutering has multiple benefits including:

  • Preventing unwanted pregnancy 
  • Helping to reduce pet over- population and stray animal issues in our community
  • Reduce or eliminate the risk of certain types of cancers and infection. 

Call us today to schedule an appointment at Koolau Animal Hospital to have your pet spayed or neutered.  


Your pets dental health is important to us!

Our doctors evaluate your pet’s oral hygiene at every visit. Good oral hygiene is key to keeping your pet healthy and helps reduce the risk of potential health concerns including heart and kidney disease.   

Brushing your pet’s teeth, giving dental enzyme chews, using anti-bacterial mouth rinses, and feeding your pet a dental diet are great ways to maintain good oral care.  

Along with these preventative measure, we also recommend annual dental cleanings to ensure your pet's oral hygiene is in top shape. Our non-invasive, out-patient procedure will restore your pet’s teeth and help prevent future build up of plaque by smoothing teeth surfaces. Your pet is able to go home the same day with fresh breath, and a sparkling smile.
