Christy Anbe, DVM
Chief of Staff
Dr. Christy Anbe grew up 5 minutes from PetVet in Aiea. She enjoyed hiking at Aiea Loop trail and going to Pearlridge shopping center. Her love of animals started with “adopting” the neighborhood cats. Her favorite childhood cat was named Nancy. She remembers her greeting her every day and following her around the yard.
She graduated from Punahou School. She enjoyed the traditions of Punahou carnival and the “Flaming P”. She then attended the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She graduated with a bachelor's degree in Animal Science. She loved driving out to the North shore to the UH farm. She had to buy some extra jackets when she went to veterinary school at Michigan State University. She was there when the Spartans won the 2000 NCAA basketball championship!
After veterinary school, she returned home with her adopted fur baby “Jazzman”. She immediately started working at Family Veterinary Clinic with Dr. Rod Pearson and Dr. Joy Yasuda. They enjoyed taking care of all the fur babies on the island, from doing wellness exams to late-night emergencies. She stayed at “Family” for many more years after that. She enjoys doing a mixture of preventative medicine, internal medicine cases, and general surgeries.
She is happily married with 3 daughters. She is also quite busy with her fur babies too. She has 2 older poi dogs- Mochi, a border collie mix, and Nala, a pitbull mix. Nala is her tripod baby, she was rescued when she was a puppy and needed an amputation. She also has a “foster failure” tuxedo cat, named Mitty. When she fostered her, she didn’t want to get attached, so she called her “Kitty”. When she decided to become her forever family, she decided to call her “Mitty” since she answered to “kitty” already. She recently adopted a rescue silky terrier, Messi. He has added so much joy to her family. When she has family time, they enjoy going to the beach, hiking, and playing soccer at the park. When she has personal “free time” (which is rare), she enjoys doing yoga and watching movies.
