Local Medical Issues

Hawaii can be fun for everyone! However, for our furry friends, the warm climate can increase the risks for heat stroke and heat exhaustion as well as several other life-threatening medical conditions. Take water with you on long hikes, and don't keep your pet in the car or enclosed space for long periods.

The weather also has minimal impact on the life span of insects, so diseases that rely on parasites are going to occur year-round. The most significant parasite in both dogs and cats is heartworm disease. It can be transmitted to indoor and outdoor pets via a single infected mosquito bite. All Hawaii dogs and cats should be on a monthly heartworm preventative. Other parasites such as fleas and ticks and internal parasites thrive year-round as well, and can also transmit diseases. Regular wellness visits and tests and talks with your veterinarian can help with the prevention and control of these pests.

Allergies are also a year-round issue due to the higher pollen counts and warmer climate, making some bacterial and yeast infections very persistent. Pets may need supplements, medications and special diets to help control their allergies more than if they lived in cooler climates.

Enjoying our warmer climate along with the rest of us is the dreaded Bufo Toad. This strange inhabitant secretes a toxin through its skin that can cause serious, life-threatening complications if a pet licks or ingests even a small amount. Immediate medical attention is required by rinsing/washing the mouth and then seeking emergency care at a veterinary hospital. Keep your pet on a leash during walks and check your yard regularly for Bufo Toads before allowing your pet to play.
