Is Private Cremation the Right Choice for Your Pet?

There are a few decisions that you will need to make after the loss of an animal companion, and one of these is whether you would prefer cremation or burial for your pet. Many individuals opt for pet cremation because it allows them to bury or scatter their pet’s cremated remains. However, this is only possible if you choose a private pet cremation.

This service costs more than a communal pet cremation because it is performed individually and you will have your pet’s cremated remains returned to you. On the other hand, communal pet cremation involves cremating more than one pet simultaneously. If you want to receive your pet’s cremated remains following the process, then private cremation is the best choice for your pet.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory offers private and communal pet cremation near Arlington, Texas. If you have questions about our pet cemetery or services, then please contact us at (682) 587-2324.

Advice for Seniors Who Have Lost a Pet

Because many people develop intense bonds with their furry family members, pet deaths can cause deep sadness and grief. However, this can be particularly true for older individuals. If you’re a senior who recently suffered the loss of a pet, then read on for advice on coping and moving on.

Do not ignore the gap left by your lost pet.

For many people, a pet death leaves a void in their life. If you’re a senior who is retired, then caring for and spending time with your pet may have occupied a significant amount of your free time. Many individuals find that bringing a new pet into their family once the time is right provides them with new meaning and a sense of joy. Also, adopting new hobbies or picking up ones that you’ve abandoned may help you cope with your grief.

Keep in touch with your neighbors and friends.

If the pet that you lost was a dog, then you may find that you no longer see much of the people that you once did while walking your pet or taking him to visit the dog park. After losing your friend, staying in contact with people can be important for coping with the death. Look for new ways to spend time with people and continue to interact with your friends and neighbors.

Find new ways to move and stay active.

Having a pet often helps seniors keep more active than they would be otherwise. After losing a pet, it can be important for your health not to slip into a lifestyle of inactivity. Instead, remember to take walks, work in your garden, or speak with your doctor about adopting a new activity or exercise routine. Also, taking up a group activity can help you connect with more people and avoid feeling depressed after losing your pet.

How Families Can Support Each Other After the Loss of a Pet

Grief brings different experiences for each individual. After the loss of a pet, it’s not uncommon to experience numbness, disbelief, shock, anger, and sorrow. A pet death can affect family members in different ways, especially since it’s not unusual for one family member to have had the closest bond with the pet. During this difficult time, families can come together to offer support and reassurance.

Respect the Need for Silence

It’s often thought that reassurances must be verbalized during a time of grief, but speaking and listening may be too painful for some family members after a pet death. Sit in silence with your loved one and offer a comforting hug. A loving touch may be all that’s needed to show your support.

Talk When the Time Is Right

As time passes, your family may be willing to talk about your beloved companion. Some individuals may repeatedly express disbelief and may blame themselves for the death. Know that your words might not convince them otherwise, but will still be welcome. You should freely express your own reactions to the loss when the time is right.

Explain Death to Children

However a pet leaves a family, children feel the sharp pain of loss. Helping children to understand the finality of death allows them to grieve in a natural way, without holding on to false hope.

Pet Mourning Is Real: Why You Should Let Yourself Grieve for Your Pet

When a human family member dies, the bereaved family often receives an outpouring of condolences and demonstrations of social support. This is as it should be, but unfortunately, the same social support is often lacking for bereaved pet parents. A pet death is always a tragic occurrence from which many people have difficulty moving forward. After the loss of your companion, you should give yourself the time you need to feel your grief.

Pets are family members.

The bond between a pet parent and a companion animal is unlike any other. Pets are much like children in that they rely on their human families to meet their every need. In return, they provide unconditional love that lifts the spirits and brightens the darkest of days. Your animal was a non-judgmental listener who was always there for you. You could count on your pet to provide a furry, scaly, or feathery hug when you needed it most. And now that your beloved animal is gone, you need to let yourself grieve. The gradual healing process can only progress when grief is allowed to naturally develop.

No two pets are alike.

Every pet parent makes his or her own choice regarding whether to adopt another pet or not. Even if you do adopt the same species and breed of pet, you should not feel guilty for trying to “replace” your lost companion simply because no animal is replaceable. Every pet has a unique personality to be cherished. If the time is right to adopt again, reassure yourself that giving another needy pet a loving home is what your lost companion would have wanted you to do.

When a pet death has left you heartbroken, you can find a way to say goodbye with the compassionate assistance of Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. We understand the depth of grief that pet parents experience and we’d like to help your family during this difficult time. Call our pet cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas at (682) 587-2324 to inquire about respectful funeral services and pet memorials.
