The best time to choose a Veterinary Animal Clinic is before you get your pet. However, life happens and you may find yourself with a pet before you have a vet. Here are some tips on how to choose an Animal Clinic Maui.

Ask Other Pet Owners

If you live in Maui and see someone walking their dog or riding horses, ask them what vet they use. Many pet owners are happy to talk to even strangers about anything to do with their pets. If you have lived in Maui for a long time, ask your pet-owning friends, neighbors, church members or co-workers what Animal Clinic Maui they use.

Check With Veterinary Websites

HVMA stands for the Hawaiian Veterinary Medical Association. Call the HVMA or checkout their website to find a veterinarian in the Maui area. You can also check out other veterinary location websites such as or the American Animal Hospital Association. You can also check out websites that specifically list businesses in Hawaii or Maui.

Check Location

Often pet owners choose an animal clinic based on how close it is. Location should not be the sole basis for choosing a veterinarian or animal clinic, but in an emergency every minute counts. It’s good to drive to the vet office to see that it is easy to get to and has plenty of parking. If you are handicapped, you need to know how many steps you have to negotiate.

Hours of Operation

Will this vet handle emergencies or will he or she only be available during office hours? Many vets are flexible in their schedules, but clinics that only have one or two vets physically are unable to handle many emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Some vet services may only require a vet technician (such as for regular blood checking) and may have hours when the office is open but the vet is unavailable.

Vet’s Experience

If you have a pet other than a dog or cat, do not assume that the vet knows how to treat it. For example, not all vets know that guinea pigs are allergic to penicillin. Ask the vet if he or she has experience treating the species of pet you keep.
