Dr. Craig Kragness

Veterinarian

Dr. Kragness' Bio

Craig Kragness, DVM, graduated from the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine in 1970 and joined the family practice, following his grandfather, father, and uncle’s footsteps, and now entering his 50th year of practicing medicine. Growing up on 63rd and Emerald in Englewood in Chicago, he worked at the animal hospital on Wentworth, helping his father and uncle until he left for the University. When he graduated in 1970, he worked alongside and was mentored by his uncle, Dr. Theodore Kragness. Craig’s love and compassion for animals and treating all clients like family is why Kragness Animal Hospital has survived 113 years in Chicago. Dr. Kragness is an early riser and gets to the hospital every morning by 6:15 am every day, lets out the boarders, and starts off his day reviewing any pet’s medical history that will be needing his attention. He enjoys going to the family cottage in Michigan with his wife and friends. Loves to fish and golf – neither very successfully.
