Dentistry: Just like in humans, pets can develop a multitude of dental problems. We recommend cleaning your pet's teeth at your pet's check-ups. We can ward off many diseases or just get rid of "bad breath".
Parkville Animal Wellness maintains state-of-the-art equipment to handle all of your pet's surgical needs. From a routine spay or neuter, orthopedic or emergency, we offer the newest and safest anesthetic protocols to provide your pet with a smooth and pain-free experience. Pre anesthetic blood chemistries are recommended to screen your pet for possible health abnormalities. We use a safe inhalant anesthetic, "Isoflurane", for all of our procedures. Isoflurane is the same anesthetic that is used in human hospitals. Pre and post surgical pain medications are given to ensure your pet wakes up comfortable and pain-free. Only the most up to date equipment is used to monitor your pets heart rate, respiratory rate and oxygen saturation while under anesthesia.
PAW provides our clients with a familiar place to take their pet in an emergency situation. We forward our office phones to Dr. Welsh's cell phone after hours.

In the presence of a life threatening emergency, we recommend you call BluePearl Specialty Medicine for Pets at (913) 642-9563.

Properly caring for an older pet is extremely important in preventing disease. Early detection is the key to prolonging their lives. The term "senior" usually refers to a pet 7 years or older, but some large breed dogs may be considered as early as 5 years.
