If your pet needs to have surgery, we understand that you want the healing time to be as quick and painless as possible. At Mid North Animal Hospital, all of our surgeries are performed with the surgical laser.
The benefits of laser surgery are numerous:
Reduced bleeding—The laser beam seals blood vessels as it cuts.
Reduced swelling—Because the laser also seals tissues as it cuts, there is minimal swelling post-surgically versus traditional methods.
Reduced pain—The laser beam seals the nerve endings as it cuts, drastically reducing the pain your pet will feel during and after surgery.
Reduced infection—The high temperature of the laser eliminates microorganisms, making infection highly unlikely.
Reduced recovery time—Most important, all of the benefits above mean that your pet will feel better faster than after traditional surgeries.
Types of laser surgery we perform include:
Spays and neuters
Soft palate resection
Stenotic nares procedures
Abdominal exploratory surgery
Reconstructive surgery for urinary tract issues, including episoplasty and perineal urethrostomy
Before you consider letting your pet undergo traditional surgery, contact us. We can explain the benefits of laser for your pet’s particular procedure.
"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."
