Kainoa Johnson, Staff Veterinarian

DVM, MS

An alumnus of Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Kainoa Johnson has been a part of the Cottonwood Animal Hospital family as of October 2020. Born and raised in Kailua, HI, Kainoa came to Salt Lake City to start his burgeoning veterinary career, and to enjoy the outdoor scenery and recreation unique to Utah's geography. With over 12 years of working experience in the veterinary field, he is now coming upon his third year in clinical practice, and holds particular interests in soft tissue surgery, anesthesiology, toxicology, nutrition, and internal medicine. In addition to his DVM, Kainoa also carries a robust background in microbiology, obtaining his Master of Science in Cell & Molecular Biology from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. These particular didactic experiences allow Dr. Johnson to offer well-rounded treatment plans based not only on sound scientific fundamentals, but with an understanding of mechanisms and physiology at the microscopic level.
