Since it is Pet Memorial month, What are my options when my pet dies? How does my veterinarian help me with choices about cremation or burial? How do I get through the grief?
The loss of a loved pet is never easy. Your veterinarian most likely works with a company that specializes in pet cremations as well as providing remembrance items. Some of these companies also offer memorial services and pet burial options. Your veterinarian can help guide you through these choices to what works best for your family. If your grief is overwhelming or you are looking for support through the grieving process, then ask your veterinarian for referrals for pet loss support groups in your area. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
