My name is Rudy Jacob Myer and I have been coming to Aid Animal Hospital all my life since I was 3 weeks old. I came from a puppy mill and have had lots of health problems. I am now 10 1/2 and every time my Mommy brings me to see all my friends I get so excited. They know I am here even before I get in the door. They take wonderful care of me and I know I will always feel so much better when I get home. Dr. Rowe is the best. He knows just what to do when I come in. He's fixed my knees and my tummy and all kinds of things. He lets me give him lots of hugs and kisses. So does everyone. My Mommy can't tell me we are coming to see my friends until we are ready to go because I get so happy and excited to go.It is wonderful and my Mommy and I would never ever think of going anywhere else. We feel so at home and know we are special.Their motto "We treat pets like family" is very true.
Thanks so much!
Rudy J. Myer (and Mommy Julie)
Dr. Rowe performed acupuncture on two of my dogs. Calamity had severe arthritis and the regular acupuncture treatments provided her much relief. I know that we would not have had her for as long as we did if Dr. Rowe had not worked his magic. He also did a few treatments on my dog Zoe for her general discomfort from diabetes. These acupuncture treatments enabled us to enjoy our girls for a much longer period of time. Many thanks to Dr. Rowe.
I have been going to Aid Animal Hospital for seventeen years. I would never think about going to any other veterinary clinic because of the care, love and compassion that is displayed and demonstrated with my dog, Andie and me!! Andie has had many health issues during her lifetime from allergies to tic disease and most recently a torn ACL. The doctors and the staff have always been there to care for my dog and they treat her as one of their own. They performed acupuncture that definitely helped expedite her recovery from surgery and called me simply to check on her progress. I absolutely love the way the staff interacts with their patients' owners. It makes me feel special and comfortable to think they not only care about my dog, but they care about me. Hats off to all of the staff and Dr. Rowe for providing a wonderful environment where patients and owners feel secure and comforted knowing that everything possible will be done to ensure a long healthy life for all our loved “family members”. Thank you for all that you have provided to Andie and me.
We brought Maddie, our ten year old Westie, to Aid Animal Hospital about a year ago with two torn ACL's on her rear legs. She walked stiffly and painfully. Dr. Rowe did his first Acupuncture treatment and the improvement was instantaneous. We had several Acupuncture treatments every six weeks or so and Maddie is moving around much better,chasing chipmunks as before. Dr. Rowe has become our full time vet. He and his staff have provided the finest medical service we have ever had for our dog. I would encourage you to try Aid Animal Hospital for the good health of your pet.
Dr. Rowe has treated all of my dogs over the years and has always given them wonderful care. Since he added acupuncture to his practice he has helped five of my dogs, always with remarkable results. My first was Elsa, a 12-year-old Golden Retriever with arthritis. I am convinced she lived two more years, comfortably, because Dr. Rowe gave her back her mobility. Next came Sandy, my puppy mill survivor collie. I got her when she was 7 and she had plenty of health problems over the years, but as she aged and got a number of new maladies, Dr. Rowe often supplemented his treatments with acupuncture and I could tell it really helped. Sandy lived to be nearly 15, which is an incredibly long life for any collie, especially one who had such rough early years. Next came Jasper who had bouts of pancreatitis. The medicine and acupuncture saved her more than once and she also had a long, comfortable life. Now I have Harry, a collie with arthritis along his spine and mild hip dysplasia. He had stopped playing entirely, which was just so wrong for the world’s happiest guy. Dr. Rowe does regular acupuncture on Harry, who just melts into a puddle of relaxation about half way through the treatment. When he comes home he takes a little Zen nap, and then wakes up as playful and agile as a puppy. And finally there’s Nick, the survivor of a hoarding situation. He’s a very frightened, sweet collie with arthritis. Dr. Rowe comes to my house to treat him because he’s just too frightened to go in the car. Every time he comes, Nick is less afraid of him because Dr. Rowe is always so gentle and patient with him. With 7 dogs over the past 20 years I’ve seen a lot of vets but Dr. Rowe is by far the best. He’s gentle, patient, compassionate, smart and up-to-date. He’s given my dogs such excellent treatment and he’s given me peace of mind that I’m taking the best care of my dogs as I possibly can. And he has the best staff ever. I trust Aid Animal Hospital and everyone there to give my dogs the best, kindest treatment there is.

Here you can see one of our happy patients in Kansas City enjoying a little relief thanks to Dr. Rowe and a few acupuncture needles.
Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Thousands of years ago, the Chinese civilization established a system of medicine that used diet, herbs, massage, exercise and a treatment technique known as acupuncture to maintain or restore a balance between mind, body and spirit.
Acupuncture involves the use of fine needles to stimulate the body to good health. It is based on the principle that the life energy that flows from the body organs can be disturbed by injury or disease. Known as QI or Chi, this energy stream can be restored by the insertion of thin needles at certain points along the meridian or energy path. Acupuncture helps strengthen the animal's immune system, relieve pain, and improve the function of various organs. It can help such fundamental problems as acute and chronic pain, paresis, arthritis, back pain,respiratory disease, gastrointestinal problems, neurological disease, as well as compliment the treatment of any disease process ailing the body. Treatment stimulates nerves, increases blood circulation, relieves muscle spasms, and causes the release of endorphins. Western medicine has been very slow to embrace acupuncture as a legitimate treatment for disease as well as preventative medicine, but after 30 years of exhaustive studies, it has been proven to have profound healing effects. Insertion of the needles is virtually painless. Most animals relax during treatment and remain calm for a day or two. Some ailments or injuries can be treated once, but more serious or complex problems may take more treatments to resolve. Once inserted in the appropriate points, the needles can be manually stimulated or micro electric currents can be used to provide more lasting effects. An examination is important with each treatment to determine the proper meridian and treatment protocol. For more information about acupuncture, contact Dr. John Rowe, veterinarian in Kansas City!

We are a full service surgical facility. From spay and neuters to intricate cruciate ligament repair, to dental cleanings and extractions, our clinic provides your pet with the best care possible. “Routine” procedures such as spays and neuters are not treated as routine. Surgery, regardless of how many times it’s performed, is still surgery. Anesthesia risks, pain and recovery are not just your concern, it is ours as well. After all, we have pets too. Pain management is high priority with the doctors and staff at Aid Animal Hospital. Pets heal faster when pain is controlled. We use many tools to assist in pain relief. NSAIDS (non steroid anti-inflammatory drugs), acupuncture, laser therapy treatment, prescribed pain patches, local anesthesia, as well as other medications proven to help relieve pain are commonly used. Sometimes a combination of several of these treatments is recommended. All of our surgical patients receive a pain injection prior to coming out of anesthesia. We wouldn’t want our own pets to be uncomfortable and we don’t want yours to be either. Your pet will receive a physical exam prior to anesthesia; will be monitored by our technicians during the procedure and while in recovery. We strive to make the surgical experience as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet.

Our new facility has an extensive boarding area divided into several separate rooms to increase our furry guest's pleasure and reduce any anxiety.

Call us crazy, but we find our boarders to be quite the intriguing conversationalists.
Aid Animal Hospital is proud to announce that we now offer laser therapy to pet owners in the Kansas City metropolitan area. The addition is part of Aid Animal Hospital's continued commitment in advanced technologies and progressive procedures in veterinary medicine.
Lasers have been used in human medicine for over 30 years, but are just beginning to appear in the veterinary field as doctors and animal lovers learn more about the benefits they can provide. Research indicates that the family pet is increasingly treated as a member of the family, and maintaining a quality of life for that pet is very important to their owners. Laser therapy provides us with an opportunity to meet the needs of our patients, and offer the highest level of care possible.
Laser therapy has several benefits over traditional pain and mobility treatments, including very rapid disappearance of pain, even that of neuralgic origin (pain coursing along a nerve). During therapy, the patented delivery system synchronizes superior energy frequencies delivering superior results in less time.
The versatility of the laser allows a doctor to treat sore muscles and joints, degenerative joint conditions, neurological pain, chronic non healing wounds as well as anti-inflammatory conditions.
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding this or any other service we offer to improve the quality of life for you and your pet. We pride ourselves on staying on the leading edge of technology and medicine, and educating our clients on the various levels of care available. Laser therapy is the future of veterinary medicine and we feel our clients deserve to have that option when choosing the best care for their pet.
Our doctors and staff perform dentisry procedures. Dental disease is a common and often overlooked problem in pets. While cavities represent the most common dental disease of humans, dogs and cats are more frequently bothered by tartar buildup on the teeth. Tartar accumulation leads to irritation of the gums around the base of the teeth, ultimately leading to the exposure of the roots. Potential outcomes of this tooth root exposure include gum infections and tooth loss. The bacteria from the tartar can cause other serious health concerns. Bacteria in the blood stream can affect the liver, kidneys and heart as well as other aspects of your pet's health. It's not just about having clean fresh breath; it's a medically necessary procedure to prevent long term health issues. Proper cleaning of the teeth requires complete cooperation of the patient so that plaque and tartar can be removed properly. Anesthesia is required to thoroughly clean the teeth. Many owners have a high degree of anxiety related to general anesthetic, be aware that your pet's general health may ultimately be compromised by delaying proper dental care. To minimize risk, our hospital uses modern anesthetics that are deemed safe even for older pets. Also, depending on your pet's age and general health status, blood may be drawn prior to anesthesia to evaluate blood cell counts and blood chemistry.
Regular visits are important and we provide the best in care for your fur babies through every stage of life. Consistent check-ups are key to maintaining optimal health and wellness, particularly since our patients can't tell us when something doesn't feel quite right. Healthy pets are happy pets. From screenings, vaccinations, x-rays, to supplements, AAH is committed to contributing to and supporting the best quality of life for your loved ones.
