Celebrate Your Pet’s Life with an Online Pet Memorial

Losing an animal companion is a difficult part of being a pet parent. The devotion they give you throughout their life makes for precious memories that will always endear them to you. At Kronenwetter Veterinary Care, the human-animal bond is something we cherish. Keeping your pet’s memory alive with a pet memorial is one of the best ways to cope with their loss.

For your pet’s memorial, you can include a photo, a short story, or whatever words come from the heart. Please submit your information in the form and follow the steps provided. Should you have any questions, please contact us today.



Oh Adam, words enough can not express the joy you brought to your family.  You were smart as a whip and never let anything get in your way.  No one ever believed us when we said you were blind, because you never let anything slow you down.  We will forever miss your little noises and pillow stealing antics.


My sweet Grumpy old man.  The bathroom is a little lonely with out your consistent supervision.   You always made sure everyone was accounted for and safe.  The love for your family and brother Adam was unmeasurable.  You will forever have a place in our hearts.


You left us almost 6 years ago. Still feels like yesterday. You were such a good boy. You are forever in my heart. ❤


Charlie was an amazing pup. He loved his little human brother and sister so very much. He loved snuggling with mom and dad and even his furry cat sister Sadie. Charlie's personality was a goofball, he will be missed so deeply by us all. Rest easy buddy, we miss you so much already.


Our beloved Dylan was more than a pet, he was family. He was loved so much by us. We only got 10 years with you but we are grateful that we got to share them with you. It was hard for us to let you go but we know we will see you again someday.

Emma Rose

Dearest Emma, you had the honor of being our first dog. You taught us much and it seems like we didn't get enough time with you. Thirteen years may seem long to most but for us, the time passed too fast. You were everything to us. Our companion, best friend, watch dog, and comedienne. Most of all, you were family to us & you were a lifeline at times for Momma. We miss you so much but we know we will meet again.


Dr. Chris was kind enough to see this sweetie on her last day with us on earth.  We appreciate the KVC seeing her as an emergency case.


You were my first daughter and my first loss.  I will never forget your loyalty.  You were a bright spot in many dark days.  Thank you for always being there for me.  I love you and think of you every day.  See you soon!


Max you were the happiest, most loving dog we've ever known. You had a long and wonderful life with people who loved you dearly. Thanks for bringing such joy into our lives. We still miss you and carry you in our hearts every day.

Maynard, Mo, Bear

I never would have thought that I could fall in love with big ears and beady little eyes.  You three were no bigger than peach pits when we brought you home, and you still never grew into your ears.  Your  personalities were just as different as you fur color.   Maynard: such a stoic boy, Bear: your endless love for food and Mo: with your tender tender heart and gentle kisses always brought a smile to my face.


I miss you every day. Still cry tears when I think about you but smile at the same time. Oh the memories I have and will cherish forever! You will forever be in my heart ❤️


Pepper was part of our family for 18 years. We miss him terribly. Thank you for the many years of wonderful care for him.
