Preventative Health Care in Hawai'i

There are numerous local medical issues in Hawai'i that can impact your pet's health, and that require your attention over the entire year.

For example, heartworm disease can affect both cats and dogs. Since it is transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, it's a serious cause for concern. Since the winter temperatures do not get cold enough here to kill mosquito eggs, it is a year-round risk.

Mommie to clover from Aiea

I took my guinea pig clover to VCA In Pearl City. The staff was Nice and Polite Not just to me I saw how they interacted with other Fur mommies and daddies. i saw Dr Hashimoto for a check up I was apprehensive because I had heard bad things about buying a Guinea pig from a Petstore I wanted my Piggie checked out to make sure he was healthy. Dr H. answered all my questions and gave great advice. He checked Clover from head to toe and was very gentle. After the appt the staff made sure I got taken care of and even peeked in my carrier to look at clover (who is the most handsome Piggy ever) I would recommend VCA Family to anyone looking for a caring Vet and a caring staff
