About Us Photo

Mid North Animal Hospital has been proudly serving the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL since 1973. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have been trusted to care for our community’s pets, and are committed to provide the highest quality veterinary care possible throughout your companion’s lifetime.

We understand the special role your pet plays in your family, and strive to make sure that you are an active partner in your pet’s healthcare choices. Our state of the art diagnostic tools and experienced veterinarians help us ensure that no matter what may happen, your pet will receive superior care.

Our facility includes an extensive in-house laboratory, a fully stocked pharmacy for your convenience, in-hospital surgical suites, digital x-rays and a comfortable boarding facility. We have strong relationships with specialists, and can refer our patients to the experts they need for very complex health issues.

Since 2000, Mid North Animal Hospital has been accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, joining only 12% of animal hospitals in North America to achieve this accreditation. In being proud Champions for Excellent Care, we adhere to over 900 standards of care and we are evaluated every three years to make sure we continue provide the best care possible to both you and your pet.

In 2015, we also received Silver Certification as a Cat Friendly Practice through the American Association of Feline Practitioners. Mid North Animal Hospital has always been what we consider to be a cat friendly practice; however, our perceptions, medical, and behavioral knowledge have changed dramatically over the last 15-20 years. Our highly trained staff is aware of your kitty’s special needs and our goal is to provide them the highest level of care and compassion possible.

In 2016, our doctors, managers, and many of our staff became Fear Free Certified. The Fear Free mission is to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in pets by inspiring and educating the people who care for them. We’re proud that our team members are evolving with veterinary medicine and are committed to looking after your pet’s physical and emotional well-being. We take the “pet” out of “petrified” and put the “treat” in treatment!

"Everyone is very friendly when we arrive with our dogs. We have had a few emergencies with our dogs and I always feel very confident that my dogs' health is the highest priority. The follow up from the office when my dog was in the emergency room overnight was extremely appreciated. I felt that the practice cared just as much for my pets as I did. This type of attentiveness is exactly why I would never go to another practice."

"Everything is great. The staff (both drs & reception) are amazing which is why we keep coming back. Miriam is extremely knowledgable and helpful for whatever we need. Our pups love going to the vet!"

"Everyone is always so great towards me and Bella. I'm so happy I have such a great vet office, keep up the good work :)"

"The staff is always so friendly and you can tell that they love their jobs. Every pet is greeted with enthusiasm and compassion."

""Value" is a tough thing - veterinary care is expensive. The line-item receipt really helps me understand all of the components of a visit and a checkup. There's never getting around the 'gulp factor' when it's time to pay...but I feel that my pets are getting excellent, and not excessive, care."

"Your "front of the house" people are great. Miriam and the rest are efficient and courteous, and clearly know and love our dogs. Can't buy that."

"Dr. Schnoor has treated our dogs since weaning, 9 years ago. She is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. She helped save my female dog's life a few years ago, for which I will always be grateful. Dr. Ross has been a great addition. He is also conscientious and well informed. Human hospitals could learn a lesson."

"Dr. Ross is very thorough and professional. He takes time with clients to review pet status and healthcare planning. The support staff is great with the animals."

"I really appreciated the follow up email I received from the doctor asking if I had any additional questions"

"Something I really appreciated about this office is that the woman who made my reservation for Dylan actually remembered him (and loved him) from his stay while with Feline Friends. It's nice to know that the staff are not just veterinary professionals, but also animal lovers."
