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 suite, digital x-rays and comfortable exam rooms. We have strong relationships with specialists, and can refer our patients to the experts they need for complex health issues or specialized procedures.

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!

"We adore Mid North Animal Hospital. We have been going there for 20 years and love the staff, Sean in tech area, Miriam and her staff of great people and of course Dr. Schnoor, she is awesome."

"Five stars for mid north. My dogs have been coming here since they were puppies.(they are now 12 and 14. The staff is both knowledgeable and friendly. When we park, the dogs start to bark excitedly and then drag me to the door."

"If you need a vet, there is no place better than Mid North Animal Hospital."

"Recently visited Mid North Animal Hospital and they are fantastic. All the various staff are engaged, caring and efficient. Used many vets before and Mid North is definitely at the top!"

"Dr Schnoor and everyone at Mid North were absolutely amazing!!! We are so grateful for you all and will be back! Seriously we are beyond grateful to find Dr Schnoor!"

"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."

"Mid-North continues to provide excellent care and the friendliest, professional staff around. Have never met ANYONE who worked there who wasn’t customer focused and very caring."

"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."

"Vets and staff are superb! Never have a moment's hesitation in bringing my pets into Mid North for all their needs."

"I love the doctors and the staff... always friendly and happy to talk with you"

"We have been going to Mid North Animals hospital for over 15 years. They have cared our kitties with skill, love and TLC. Love them!"

"Honestly, I don't have a recommendation for what Mid North Animal Hospital could have done better during my dog's last wellness checkup. I love Mid North Animal Hospital. I've been bringing my dogs to Mid North for the last 20 years because Dr. Ross & Dr. Schnoor are excellent vets, the front office is terrific and now they have a beautiful new office."
