Pay Tribute to Your Family Pet with Online Memorials

pet-loss

At Leon Valley Veterinary Hospital, your pets are important members of our family. When these special family members come to the end of their lives, the loss leaves an empty space in our hearts. We join you in mourning such a loss and in celebrating the life that gave us all such joy.

Pet Memorials

We offer the opportunity to celebrate the life of your special pet in two special ways:

  • Pet memorial wall —Here we invite you to remember your pet by “hanging” an online plaque on our memory wall: choose the imprint that best matches your pet, name it, and leave loving memories for others to read and cherish.
  • Light a candle —Pet owners are encouraged to light a virtual candle in memory of their deceased pets.
