I called Koolau in pretty much an emergency, I wanted a second opinion from another vet. They were very responsive and asked plenty questions, you could tell that they cared, and they were willing to look at him that day. It was around 2 pm and they still made time for us. They worked on my cat and I looked at the bill and it was at least half from the place I just left. Dr. Asato is very thourough, very personable and I am happy I got a second opinion.

Very happy with the service. My vet genuinely cares and won me over when she said she tries topical before oral. As a person who believes antibiotics are over prescribed as an easy fix I was really happy to hear this.

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.  


At Koolau Animal Hospital we also offer boarding to our established clients. If you’re going out of town for a month, or just a weekend get away, do so knowing your pet is getting the best care possible. Our boarding animals get outdoor access three times a day with complimentary meals. A bath, pedicure, and anal sac expression are also available upon request. You may also bring comforts from home including, but not limited to: a bed, towel, your pet's favorite food, bowls, toys, etc.  If your pet takes any medications feel at ease knowing they will be properly administered by our staff.

Pricing is based on weight of your pet and extra charges apply for additional services.

All boarders must be current on vaccines, heartworm test, fecal testing, free of any external parasites and on a monthly preventative medication.

Due to limited availability, space is reserved on a first come first serve basis, so call us as soon as you can to inquire about boarding.
