County Line Equine Practice (CLE) is a Crystal Lake based, ambulatory practice. We chose the name County Line because of our location that puts us at the crossroads of four great northern Illinois counties, McHenry, Lake, Cook, and Kane with access to DeKalb and other surrounding communities. We welcome a variety of hooved patients including horses, small ruminants, and camelids (llamas/alpacas).

County Line Equine Practice was founded on the belief that extraordinary veterinary care is based on communication and coordination between veterinarian and client. We take pride in building lasting relationships and being a partner in your patient’s health. Collaboration is so vital to who we are, that we built it into our logo by crossing the front legs of the two horses.

The veterinary industry is constantly advancing in both therapeutic and diagnostic techniques. We are dedicated to always advancing our own education so that we can provide the best medicine available. Each appointment and examination is tailored to the individual patient, your horse is unique and we believe health care should be as well.

In addition to providing quality veterinary care, CLE values being an active member in the community. We enjoy speaking at 4-H events, girl/boy scout meetings, career days, and a variety of other occasions.
