Our clinic was founded on the principle of providing the highest quality medical and surgical care to pets in Algonquin, Barrington, Carpentersville, Lake In The Hills, Crystal Lake and other surrounding areas. Dr. Linda E. Lapin and the staff at APVC strive for a practice culture that fulfills the veterinary expectations of pet owners who consider their pets valued family members.

Here at All Paws Veterinary Clinic,  we are happy to treat dogs, cats and pocket pets (rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, rats, etc...) Dr. Lapin opened All Paws in May of 2001 after leaving her practice in Barrington. For four years the practice was housed in a store front in East Algonquin while it grew to allow the new facility at 1324 Ryan Parkway, just off of Algonquin Road,  We work to protect and promote the well being of animals by providing the most complete medical and surgical veterinary care supported by current medical research. Dr. Lapin, Kim, Diane, and K.K. welcome all questions regarding your pet's care and well being. We look forward to meeting you and your pet!
