Recognizing the Signs of Periodontal Disease in Pets

Whether a pet’s death was a result of old age or illness, coping with his or her passing can be very painful. While you can’t always prevent the loss of a pet, there are steps you can take to help keep yours healthy, and one of these is to be aware of periodontal disease. Watch this video to learn about the signs of this condition in pets.

Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition diagnosed in cats and dogs, and it often develops primarily beneath the gumline, making it difficult for pet owners to see. However, if your pet has bad breath, gum recession, or loose teeth, then she may have periodontal disease and should be evaluated by a veterinarian.

Tips for Scattering Your Pet's Cremated Remains

The loss of a pet can be a heartbreaking experience, but honoring his memory with a pet burial or cremation ceremony can offer some solace to grieving pet owners. If you have chosen to memorialize your deceased companion using pet cremation, then read on for tips on scattering his cremated remains.

Hold a Ceremony

The scattering of your pet’s cremated remains can be the perfect opportunity to pay tribute to him with a final goodbye. For this farewell, consider writing down some words in advance, so that you feel better prepared to honor your pet. Also, you may benefit from bringing a couple of friends or family members with you and having someone take photos, which can provide you with a nice way to look back on the event.

Consider Your Pet

For many individuals who choose pet cremation, the ideal place to scatter their pet’s remains is in their backyard, where they can perform this ritual in privacy and keep their companion’s remains close by. Many people think of this as a way to bring their pet home a final time and to say goodbye where the pet loved to play and spend time with his family. If your pet relished trips to the woods or lake, then holding the ceremony in one of these locations may be a great way to honor your companion who has passed on.

Learn About Regulations

Before you decide where you’ll scatter your pet’s cremated remains, it’s important to find out about any regulations there may be for doing so or if any permits must be obtained. Also, if you’re planning to perform the ritual in your backyard, then only do so if you own the property. Otherwise, you should contact the property owner to receive permission in advance.

At Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory, we offer a selection of pet burial and memorial options to help you honor your companion who has passed away.

How You Can Help Your Grieving Pet

Pet deaths can be incredibly difficult for the entire family, and this fact extends to other pets in the household. If you recently suffered the loss of a pet and have noticed behavioral changes in your surviving dog, then continue reading for advice on helping her while she grieves.

Maintain Your Routine

The loss of a companion presents a major shift in your dog’s day-to-day life, and although you may have reasons to change the way you care for her after the loss of a pet, sticking to your normal routine as much as possible may help your surviving pet cope. Having a schedule that they can count on can help dogs feel more secure and less anxious, so try to feed, walk, and play with your pet in the same way that you always have.

Reward Positive Behavior

Although it may be difficult to do so, resisting the urge to pet and cuddle your dog if she is behaving in an unwanted way can help prevent the reinforcement of the behavior. For example, if your dog has taken up a habit of whining since the loss of your pet, then avoid offering her attention in these moments. Instead, pet and reward your dog when she is quiet or behaving normally so you can positively reinforce these wanted behaviors.

Provide Healthy Distractions

Many people must leave their pets home alone while they work during the day. After losing one dog, the other may feel lonely and be prone to boredom and anxiety while you’re away. To help prevent destructive behaviors and keep your dog’s mind busy while you’re out of the house, try giving her some new toys. Consider offering her a few different toy options, so you’re more likely to find one that she will enjoy playing with.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory is dedicated to helping you honor the pet you have lost. For information about the services we offer at our pet cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas, please call (682) 587-2324.

How to Support a Friend Who Has Lost a Pet

The loss of a pet is a devastating event that most people have had to cope with at some point in their lives. Nothing you say to a bereaved friend can change the situation, but your friend may be comforted to know how much you care. Continue to check in with your friend for a while—she may need some time to move forward from the pet’s death.

Offer a sympathetic ear.

Visit your friend’s home to offer your condolences and provide a shoulder to lean on. Don’t feel as though you need to fill silence with conversation. It may be enough for your friend to simply know that you’re there because you care.

Assist your friend with practical matters.

The sight of a dog’s chew toy or a cat’s scratching post may send your friend into tears. Don’t pressure your friend to pack these things away, but do let her know that you’re there to help. If your friend can’t bear to relocate these items, she could go for a walk while you pack these things into a box. You could also offer to escort your friend to the pet cemetery. She may appreciate your support, especially if your friend doesn’t have close family members to accompany her.

Help your friend create new routines.

In many ways, pets shape daily life. Your friend was accustomed to feeding, watering, grooming, and playing with her pet. Perhaps your friend had certain rituals, like cuddling with the pet before bedtime or walking the pet after work. When a pet dies, it’s hard to get accustomed to the void. You can help your friend by developing new routines, such as getting together for a lunchtime walk in the park.

Even if your friend is inconsolable after the pet’s death, she may attain some closure by giving the pet a proper burial or cremation. Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory is a compassionate, welcoming place where bereaved pet parents can gather to reflect on their cherished memories of their animals. Call (682) 587-2324 to inquire about pet funerals available in Fort Worth, Texas.

Involving Your Child in the Pet Burial Process

Children are remarkably resilient, but they may have trouble coping after a pet’s death. If your child is receptive to the idea, consider involving him in the pet funeral process. Visit the pet cemetery together and walk the grounds to find the right burial location. Let your child select a casket that best reflects the pet’s personality.

Before burying your furry, scaly, or feathery family member, ask your child if he would like to write a letter to the pet. Your child could write about some special memories of the pet, and about how much your child loved the pet. Ask the cemetery staff to enclose the letter inside the pet’s casket before the burial. Each family member can take a turn saying a few words over the pet’s grave. When you return home, consider asking your child to help you plant a memorial tree or flowering shrub in honor of the pet.

The compassionate staff at Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory will guide your family in choosing a peaceful burial site in our pet cemetery in Arlington, Texas. You can reach us at (682) 587-2324.

What to Expect During the Pet Cremation Process

Pet cremation is a respectful choice that allows you to keep your pet’s cremated remains with you at home, or you may choose to scatter them or bury them. When you choose a private onsite crematory at a cemetery, you can rest assured that your pet’s body and cremated remains will be handled with the utmost care and respect. If you do have any questions about how your pet will be handled, you should always feel free to speak up.

Remains Transportation

Bereaved pet parents often find that one of the hardest parts of saying goodbye is bringing their pet’s body to the crematory. If you choose a private facility, you could arrange for professional transportation instead. You can ask the staff to visit your veterinarian’s office or your home. Responsible crematory staff should attach a tag to your pet with your information on it to prevent mix-ups.

Communal Cremation

Communal cremation is one of your choices. It means your pet would be cremated along with a few other deceased companions. The cremated remains comingle, which means that it is not possible to return the remains to you. Instead, all the ashes would be interred in a communal grave in the cemetery, which you may visit at any time to pay your respects.

Private Cremation

If you prefer to keep your pet’s remains at home with you, or to scatter them, you can choose private cremation. Your pet’s body will be rendered into ash separately from any other animal. Afterward, an urn will house the remains.

Cremation Memorials

There are many ways to memorialize your beloved companion. You may create a niche in your home that holds the urn, along with photographs and a few meaningful mementos. You might create a garden or plant a tree in memory of your animal, or you could have memorial jewelry crafted. Another option is to give a donation to an animal rescue organization in memory of your pet.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory offers grieving pet parents a respectful and dignified way to say goodbye to their beloved animals. When it’s time for families near Fort Worth, Texas to arrange an animal cremation, our compassionate staff can be reached at (682) 587-2324.
