We are excited to welcome our new associate veterinarian to the PAH team🥳
Dr. Lehua Maloney was born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii. She first attended Kealakehe grade school in Kailua Kona, then transferred to Pahoa Intermediate when her family moved to Puna in 1991. Home schooling took her through grade 12, then into the UH system where she graduated from UH Manoa in 2002. She was accepted to the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Program at University of Minnesota in 2003. The winter of 2003 was her very first! Dr. Maloney was awarded her DVM in 2007 and continued to live and work in Minnesota after meeting her husband Dave, who was well rooted in the area. Dr. Maloney purchased Winona Veterinary Hospital in MN where she worked for 15 years. In 2021 Dr. Maloney finally decided it was time to return to the Islands. Dr. Maloney has special interests and advanced training in soft tissue and orthopedic surgery, canine reproduction and small mammal (rabbit, guinea pig) medicine and surgery. Outside of practicing veterinary medicine, Dr. Maloney is passionate about horseback riding, dog training and showing, and anything to do with the ocean. Dr. Maloney is very excited to come back home to provide high-quality, compassionate pet care to the Big Island Community.
