AAHA Logo

Our vet team is delighted to welcome you to the official website for The Honolulu Pet Clinic, your comprehensive animal care resource in Honolulu HI. We are committed to providing our patients with a lifetime of optimal health and wellness through our skilled, compassionate veterinary care services, equipment and techniques. For 30 years, our staff has been providing excellent care to the furry companions in Honolulu. We're confident that once you get to know us and experience our dedication to your pet's well-being, you'll rely on us as your trusted veterinary advisors for many years to come.

The Right Veterinarians for Your Furry Family Members

The Honolulu Pet Clinic was founded on veterinary excellence, a tradition we maintain to this day. Founding veterinarian Dr. Roger Kondo originally set the standard, devoting decades of skill and expertise to establishing our sterling reputation. This has helped us earn an AAHA Accreditation as well!

As of 2016, Dr. Ed Hsu assumed ownership of our clinic. He, Dr. Kondo and Dr. Melanie Pearson continue to provide a mix of skill, experience, insight and compassion that our patients and their owners truly appreciate. Each veterinarian, and every member of our staff, has a genuine love for animals and a desire to help pets like yours experience their best health.

Comprehensive Vet Services for All Needs and Situations

A pet's life goes through many stages and challenges, from the vulnerability of those first few weeks of life to the different set of challenges faced during the senior years. Our animal care team responds to this wide range of needs with an equally wide range of services. We can offer:

  • Preventative care - We provide preventative wellness services for puppies/kittens, adult animals and senior pets, from vaccinations and pest prevention to routine dental checkups and cleanings.
  • In-house diagnostics and pharmacy - Our advanced in-house diagnostic techniques and technologies include digital X-rays, ultrasound, endoscopy and electrocardiography to provide fast, accurate insights into your pet's condition. We also maintain an in-house pharmacy for your pet's medication needs.
  • Emergency care - Bring your veterinary emergency to us anytime during our normal office hours. You can reach us at (808) 988-2188 after 5:00pm for your emergency needs as well! We can treat lacerations, fractures, poisoning, digestive crises, heat stroke and many other life-and-death scenarios.
  • Surgery - Our surgical skills can resolve internal organ problems, treat cancer, extract a diseased tooth, ensure a healthy birth, sexually sterilize your pet and more.
  • Support services - We offer services such as behavioral counseling and boarding to help support your pet's quality of life.

Aloha from Dr. Hsu

Ed Hsu VMD is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania. You will always know a Penn Grad by the unique VMD instead of DVM. Also known as "Penn We's" because we are fond of saying that at Penn we "would have done it this way.....". He completed an internship at the Sacramento Animal Medical Group with every intention of continuing in general practice, but the lure of emergency medicine was too much to ignore. After having worked as an emergency/critical care veterinarian at many of the premier specialty and referral practices in Los Angeles over the last 15 years, he is returning to general practice with the purchase of The Honolulu Pet Clinic.

A fortune teller once angered his mother by telling her that while he might stray from the path she had chosen, she should leave him alone because he will always find his way. The child who was supposed to be a MD, but loved animals most became a veterinarian. The child who tried to stay by wandering off on a layover at the Honolulu airport while emigrating to America 40 years ago has finally returned to Hawaii. While emergency medicine can be exciting by nature, only general practice allows the bond that comes from the first pet exam through a lifetime of care. Known for his fondness for Pomeranians, lop eared bunnies and polydactyl cats, when not caring for his patients, Dr. Hsu may be found paddle boarding, SCUBA diving, riding his motorcycle, trying to work his way through a 10,000 DVD movie collection or spending time with his 2 dogs and 9 cats.


To Our Clients and Furry Friends,

It is with a” bittersweet” feeling that I convey to my dear clients and patients that I will be retiring from my veterinary practice, The Honolulu Pet Clinic, effective August 4, 2016. It has been 38 years since I received my diploma from Washington State University to practice veterinary medicine and I have relished and enjoyed every hour of every day of those years. Thank you for the honor and privilege of allowing me to care for your “no greater friend, no better companion”, your pets.

The “SWEETEST” part of my retirement is that I have been able to transfer the ownership of the clinic to Ed Hsu, VMD, who is not only highly-skilled, but has a solid number of years’ experience working in clinics/hospitals and 24-hours emergency care. His educational credentials along with his genuine love for animals is bar none. The Honolulu Pet Clinic employees will all be here to continue to provide the top-notch service that you have been accustomed to and to welcome you to the clinic under the direction of Dr. Ed Hsu. I will be here for the month of August to proudly introduce you to Dr. Hsu and to assist with all transition matters.

Aloha and Mahalo,

Roger M. Kondo, DVM



At The Honolulu Pet Clinic, we treat your pets like the valued family members they are.

Testimonials

  • "Under new ownership. Dr Hsu is a very experienced and qualified veterinarian. Also, his staff is loving and kind. We recently moved from the Big Island and needed a new veterinary home. They welcomed us very graciously. They handled my cat as though he was the most precious animal in the world. (He is). And they called to follow up and see how he was doing. Very high marks!!"
