Unique Ways to Memorialize Your Lost Pet

A pet death is never an easy experience to handle, but the right kind of pet memorial can help you move on knowing your pet is still with you. From pet burial boxes to cat urns, the way you memorialize your pet can make a world of difference. Here is an overview of a few unique ways to memorialize your lost pet.

If your pet used to follow you everywhere you went, use a pet urn necklace to keep the tradition going. You can insert some of the remains of a cremated pet into the small pendant and attach it to a necklace or a keychain. You can use a Memory Vessel USB pendant to accomplish a similar purpose; the difference is that these vessels can store pictures, videos, and sounds that remind you of your dearly beloved pet.

What Are the Benefits of Choosing a Pet Cemetery for Burial?

Benefits of pet cemetary burialLosing a pet can be an incredibly difficult experience, especially for children who are too young to understand what has happened. Although a pet cemetery cannot bring your companion back, it can provide a number of benefits that can help you through the process. Keep reading if you would like to take a look at some of the benefits of choosing a pet cemetery for burial.

Mourn Your Loss

There is nothing more difficult than losing a beloved member of the family. Many children grow into adults with their furry companions by their side the whole way; this can make the experience all the more difficult. A pet cemetery allows you to mourn the loss of your pet by holding a traditional funeral. This process can be very cathartic and help in the process of healing.

Visit Your Pet

While it may seem like a good idea to keep your pet’s remains close to home and bury your dog or cat on your property, this may be a troubling reminder of his or her passing for young children. Your neighborhood may also have regulations that can complicate the process of burying your pet in your backyard. When you bury your pet at a pet cemetery you will be able to return and visit the gravesite whenever you want; some people like to go and visit the gravesite on their pets’ birthdays.

Avoid Handling Remains

Dealing with the loss of a pet can be difficult as it is, and being forced to handle its remains can be simply overwhelming. Using a pet cemetery service can help you avoid this trying experience and try to move on. You can even have the pet cemetery service come and retrieve the remains from your home.

Are you considering burying your pet at a pet cemetery? If you are, please feel free to call Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory at (682) 587-2324.

A Look at Diabetes in Dogs

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell when something is wrong with your pet, which is why it pays to understand the signs. Arming yourself with this knowledge can help you keep the notion of a pet cemetery in the distant future. Watch this video for a look at diabetes in dogs.

Signs of Illness in Cats

signs of cat illness dfwJust like humans, cats can deal with various types of sicknesses; unlike humans, they cannot verbally express their pains. Pet deaths can be painful for the whole family, so it is wise to keep an eye out for any potential signs that something is wrong with your pet. Read on for a brief look at some of the signs of illness in cats.

Sudden Behavior Changes

If you notice that your cat starts to engage in uncharacteristic behaviors, do not ignore these changes. Your cat may be sleeping more or waking up in the middle of the night, which could be an indication of pain or illness. If your cat has been drinking much more or less water than usual, this could be a sign of kidney problems or diabetes. Take your cat to a vet if its behavior changes radically.

Changes in Personality

Illness may cause your cat’s personality to change in addition to its behavior. A quiet cat may become much more vocal if it suffers from anxiety or high blood pressure. This type of change in personality will not typically happen without a reason, so the adaptation should be addressed. If your cat is normally a loner and has turned into your shadow, a trip to the veterinarian may be in order; the same applies if your clingy cat seems to want nothing to do with you.

Weight Loss or Weight Gain

While a sick cat may experience many changes in behavior and personality, weight change is a bit more objective and easier to measure. This change may also be independent of your cat’s diet; if your cat has been eating a normal amount and is still losing weight, diabetes or hyperthyroidism may be factors.

If your cat has recently succumbed to an illness, contact Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory or visit our website. Our pet cemetery is proud to help you cope with pet deaths in Dallas, Texas in any way we can. Please do not hesitate to call us at (682) 587-2324 for more information about our cat urns and pet memorials.

When Is the Right Time to Consider a New Pet After a Loss?

new pet dfwThe loss of a pet can be very hard on the whole family, including other pets in the household. Some people may want to adopt a new pet right away to help ease the pain of the loss, while others may want to wait a while until they are sure that the time is right. Here are some tips to help you determine the best timeline for adopting a new pet.

Take a Therapeutic Break

There are benefits to taking a break between the loss of your old pet and your adoption of a new one. If you don’t own any other pets, it may be nice to have a reprieve from caring for an animal. You can travel, spend more time on activities away from home, and reflect on the type of animal that you’d like to invite into your home next. Taking a break will also allow you to fully process the grief surrounding your pet’s death before taking on the care of another animal.

Consider Your Current Environment

Spend time considering your current living environment and lifestyle. If you were used to owning an independent animal or an older animal that didn’t require much care, keep in mind that a new pet may not have the same characteristics. If you adopt a puppy or kitten, you will have to spend a lot of time training and socializing it. If your current lifestyle or environment wouldn’t allow for a young or needy animal, it’s better to discover that before adopting one.

Don’t Try to Replace Your Previous Pet

Many people consider a new animal to be a replacement for the one they just lost, and that can be problematic. When you’re ready to adopt a new animal, remind yourself that it will not have the same temperament or personality as your previous pet.

If you’ve experienced the loss of a pet, contact us at Faithful Friends for assistance. We provide pick up services, burial services, and cremation services to Fort Worth, Arlington, and Dallas. Call us today at (817) 478-6696 for more information.

A Look at Common Pet Emergencies

Pet emergency DFWYour pet is part of the family, and worrying about its health and safety can be consuming. If you think that your pet is ill or suffering, you may not know what warrants an emergency. Those of us who have experienced the loss of a pet understand the guilt and anxiety associated with a sick animal. Here are some common pet emergencies and the best way to handle them.

Emergencies

If your pet has experienced trauma, has lost consciousness, or collapsed, you should take him to an emergency vet immediately. If your pet has trouble breathing, this is also an emergency, and can be a sign of severe illness, heart failure, poisoning, or choking. If your animal has severe vomiting or diarrhea that has ingested a known toxin, or is suddenly unable to walk, he should see a vet immediately.

Less Critical Conditions

If your pet vomits or has diarrhea one or two times, there is no blood present in the vomit or stool, and you know he has not ingested a toxin, is not an emergency situation. If he is limping or acting tired or listless with no other symptoms present, he may just be feeling briefly under the weather. In these situations, contact your vet and describe your pet’s symptoms, then follow your vet’s advice.

Non-Emergencies

If your animal is sneezing, scratching, or exhibiting other common allergy symptoms, it is likely not an emergency. Contact your veterinarian and make an appointment for a check up at the next available appointment. Likewise if your animal has stepped on a thorn or other sharp object and is limping, or if he gets a small scratch from another animal or object. If there are no severe signs of trauma, no serious blood loss, and your pet is eating, drinking, walking, and sleeping fine, it is probably not an emergency situation.

If you’re experiencing the loss of a pet, Faithful Friends can help. We provide burial, cremation, and after hours services to Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. Contact us at (817) 478-6696 for more information.
