Helping Pets Live Their Best Lives

Alii Animal Hospital and Resort in Honolulu was founded by Dr. Joanna Cook and Matt Malta on the value of
imi ola, which means “to seek life’s highest form.” This vision translates to providing unparalleled veterinary
care to dogs and cats of Honolulu, helping them to live their best lives.

Alii Animal Hospital & Resort’s highly trained, compassionate veterinarians and staff extend the love and
care you provide to your pet with a superior veterinary experience rooted in a whole health approach.
Our leaders are not only trained with the highest level of veterinary and administrative knowledge but are
deeply caring and compassionate.
