Pet Pain Management

No one likes to be in pain or to see someone they love suffer with it. One of the first things we do is to help you know when your pet is in pain. Once we have a diagnosis, we work with you and your pet to find the appropriate way to keep the pain to a minimum.

Pain management is a priority, whether the pain is temporary, after surgery or an injury, or something that is going to be a long-term concern. Our goal is to make your pet as comfortable as possible at all times.

Pain Medications

Many of the medications we give to your pet are the same ones you may be given. These drugs have been tested and passed safety requirements. We do not use unproven drugs for any situation. If one drug is not helping with pain management, we will try a different one, or perhaps a combination of medications, to make your pet comfortable.

Chronic Conditions

Like humans, your pet may develop a disease or condition that keeps him or her in almost constant discomfort. We work hard to find a combination of therapies that help to ease this pain. This may include massage, hydrotherapy, or even physical therapy to keep the joints moving. If the pain is due to a disease such as cancer, we provide you with the medications necessary to give your pet a reasonable quality of life while undergoing treatments to eliminate the cancer.

Laser Therapy

We are excited to provide the most cutting-edge laser therapy. Laser therapy is available for treating problems involving the soft tissues of the body, including:

Laser therapy is non-invasive, pain free, and carries no risks, making it a great solution for many health problems. Most pets find laser therapy to be relaxing, and look forward to their treatments, much like we would a look forward to a good massage.

We know you do not want to see your pet suffering in any way. Our pain management practices are in place to lessen the pain your pet feels, allowing him or her to heal faster.

We treat each pet, and his or her pain, individually, doing whatever it takes to minimize any suffering and get him or her back to normal as quickly as possible.

"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."
