The Honolulu Pet Clinic welcomes Dr. Ed Hsu. Dr. Hsu is a graduate of University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine and also earned a M.P.H from the School of Public Health from the University of California, Los Angeles with a concentration on Tropical & Infectious Diseases & Parasitology. 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. 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.
Dr. Kondo was the previous owner of The Honolulu Pet Clinic for 32 years before transferring ownership to Dr. Hsu. Dr. Kondo earned his veterinary medicine diploma from Washington State University 38 years ago. Although recently retired, Dr. Kondo couldn’t help but come back to the Honolulu pet clinic to work part-time.

Originally she applied for a vet tech position, but was asked to start as a customer service representative since she had prior receptionist experience in a human urgent care facility.
