Meet Our Wonderful and Caring Staff

John E. Rowe, DVM,CVA

Owner of Aid Animal Hospital


Dr. John Rowe received his veterinary degree from Kansas State University in 1990, and has been the proud owner of Aid Animal Hospital for almost two decades. Dr. Rowe is an accomplished surgeon, certified veterinary accupuncturist, and medical practitioner. He continues to search for new ways to improve the health and life of the animals he so lovingly cares for. Dr. Rowe feels strongly about keeping you informed of every aspect of your pet's health and possesses a welth of knowledge concerning their overall care.


When not at the hospital, Dr. Rowe keeps an active lifestyle with his wife Tania and teenage children Nadia and Bella who also work at the clinic. He shares his household with their 4 dogs Frisco, Pablo, Ramsey, and Walter.


When we at AAH say that we treat your pet like family, we truly do. As pet parents, we know the value your pet has as a part of your family. We look forward to meeting with you and thank you for choosing Aid Animal Hospitl to care for your pets.

Dr. Makenzie Wilder


Dr. Wilder is a native of South Carolina and will greet you with a smile and southern charm.  She has a couple fur babies of her own.  Roland is a deaf English Setter that she adopted during vet school, Arlemis a service cat who goes with Dr. Wilder to provide animal therapy to rehabilitation homes, and last but not least, her other cat Tora who she was fostering but just couldn't let go.  Tora apparently keeps Dr. Wilder on her toes!


In her free time, Dr. Wilder enjoys being outside whether she's backpacking, camping, skiing, or playing competitive Frisbee, woodworking (she's planning on making her own furniture soon), and spending time with her fiancé.


Dr. Wilder fits right in with our fun quirky bunch because she's not afraid to be herself, try new things, and be different - for instance, in college she showed chickens at the local 4-H.  She even won once!

As Dr. Rowe's wife, she is lucky to be able to laugh both at work and at home.  Mother to Nadia and Bella, Tania stays busy running a business and running after teenagers and describes her life as a three ring circus.  Irrestibly drawn to all things furry, you may find her temporarily distracted by your furry pets when you are in for a visit.  She offers no apologies for this.
