Was my vet for 6 years before I moved to the mainland. Wish I could have brought them all with me. They are the most amazing animal people. Made me dogs feel so comfortable. They are the most caring vet in Hawaii. They did so much for my dogs and myself. I would recommend them a million times.

I Had an emergency situation with my Cat during after hours while my cat was in labor and needed immediate attention. I looked up veterinarians nearby and came across Kauai Veterinary Clinic. I love how there was an emergency after hours line that I could call. I gave them a call and Dr.Pulawa and Dr.Bushe and technician was extremely helpful! The customer service was beyond excellent, very professional and I would definitely recommend Kauai Veterinary Clinic! Doctor Pulawa was concerned and called me back a few times to check up on how the situation was and I appreciated that a lot. Costly, it was expensive but I feel good knowing that my kitty was well well taken cared of.

Just saw Dr.Gallardo and had to leave halfway thru the visit. I went to establish care for my hound mix female named Kaia. She is very gentle and quiet dog, not an ounce of aggression. Kaia is a rescue and was probably abused as a breeding hunting dog. The initial meeting with the vet tech was fine, she was kind. But after she left about 10 minutes later Dr. Gallardo came in with two vet techs. They put Kaia on a table and lifted raised it up. They then proceeded to put her in a head lock and lock her backside also. Kaia was confused and did not like the strong holds they had on her. They gave no consideration to how the hold was affecting her. I asked if it was necessary to put her in a hold like that and they said it was protocol. I then offered to help but they told me I couldn't and I could only pet her head. Dr. Gallardo proceeded to look at her ears while she became more scared in the holds. I'd never seen a vet office handle a dog like this. I asked them multiple times that they not hold her like that and just let her sit on the table and she would let them look at her. It was completely unnecessary. After attempting a few times to get them to be a bit more gentle with her I decided to just stop the visit and leave. The Doctor put her hands up made a face like I was crazy and left the room. Absolutely unprofessional. I'm the client and I'm concerned with how you're handling my pet, why not just take a break and regroup, discuss what's happening. I do not recommend this place and thought others should know before they take their animal here. Below is a pic of my super aggressive dog that needed two vet techs to put her in a two man lock hold.

Kaua'i Vet Clinic is the best! I have been taking my kitties there for the last 10 or so years. They are often busy and overworked, so give them some slack. They more than make up for it with compassionate staff and doctors that are willing to work with you. Dr. Bethany, Dr. Pulawa, and Dr. Mike are all great vets. Each have their own style, but the knowledge and ability they display is phenomenal. They are always able to squeeze me in when something urgent happens and are willing to work with me to develop treatment plans that are feasible for me and my cats.The office staff is wonderful as well, and the vet techs know me and my kitties by name, I love it. Veterinary staff are so overworked and under-appreciated, but I hope Kauai Vet staff knows that I appreciate their hard work. My older cats certainly would not be here if it were not for the care of KVC.

This vet is the best! My dog got banged and we went to Lihue Vet Clinic in the industrial park by the vidnha center and they were absolutely horrible! It was late at night and the doc charged me $365 for not even examine my pet with the correct tools and correct info and was horrible! We bring him to this vet and they were extremely caring! Mind you they only take their patients but we were so lucky to have the help from the awesome staff! And the awesome doc on site!! Thank you, love Maze and his ohana????
