Founding veterinarians Joseph and Mariel Edhlund at Gentle Vets work hard to make Gentle Vets Advanced Care the most advanced state of the art veterinary hospital in Hawaii. We have equipped the hospital with the best and latest equipment and strive to provide the best expertise in the world, let alone Hawaii. Our Seimens 64 slice CT scanner is rivaled, but not surpassed, in only 4 of the 28 US veterinary schools in the US. Our equipment list of CT scanner, digital radiology, fluoroscopy, surgery suite with laminar flow HEPA filtered air supply, Leica Wild 690 operating microscope, extensive orthopedic and soft tissue surgery instrumentation, ultrasound, endoscopy and arthroscopy equipment is unequaled in Hawaii.
In search of excellence we have partnered with Southern California Veterinary Specialists and now offer advanced surgery including total hip replacement in our Honolulu veterinary hospital as well as advanced heart surgery and other soft tissue and cancer surgery at Advanced Care by Board Certified veterinarians as primary surgeons or consultants to our primary surgeons. In addition we have developed a close working relationship withe the team of SCVSH.
