Kruger Animal Hospital is located in the heart of Normal college campuses, with Illinois State University just about 3 miles east, Illinois Wesleyan University just over 6 miles southeast, and Heartland Community College just under 10 miles north. This provides for a large variety of extra-circular activities, including sporting events, concerts, plays and circuses. Outdoor recreational opportunities around Bloomington-Normal include fishing, hunting, camping and boating. The Grossinger Motors Arena (formally known as U.S. Cellular Coliseum) is also located in Bloomington, home of the Central Illinois Flying Aces hockey team, Bloomington Edge arena football team, and various other entertainments including many sold-out concerts. The area is very well represented with schools, churches, social organizations, shopping centers and restaurants. The cost of living in McLean County is below the average for the state of Illinois. All of these combined are reasons why we feel McLean County is an attractive to live and practice.
