Emergency Care


In an Emergency

You know your pet the best. If your pet is hurt or ill, the sooner they are seen by a veterinarian, the more likely they are to make a full and rapid recovery. Prompt medical care at a 24-hour emergency veterinary hospital can alleviate unnecessary suffering and pain for your pet. If you feel that your pet needs emergency medical care, then it most likely does. Our highly-trained, caring veterinary staff is here to provide the best emergency diagnostics and care for your animals in Honolulu and throughout Hawaii.

As Hawaii’s first 24-hour veterinary emergency + specialty hospital, our veterinary hospital utilizes state-of-the-art equipment and technical innovations, that, along with our expert veterinarians and skilled technicians, allow us to provide sound, effective veterinary care for a wide variety of ailments and injuries. Once your pet is stabilized and a treatment protocol is decided upon, we like to return them to their primary caretaker as soon as possible for recovery and case management. We are here for you and your pet  around the clock (24 hours a day), anytime your regular veterinarian is not available or when the scope of the injury/illness requires specialized veterinary skills or equipment.

No matter what time of day an emergency happens with your pet, our hospital staff oversees the emergency clinic 24 hours a day, every day.
