Signs You Should Seek Help for Your Grief After Losing Your Pet

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory can help you during the difficult process of planning a burial service for your pet. After a pet burial or cremation, you may find yourself stuck in the grieving process. Look for these signs that you should seek help:

Missing him.

You Feel Like You Have No Support
A good support system is always helpful when dealing with any type of loss. The grieving process may be unique for everyone, but a desire to feel thought of and supported tends to be common during this experience. If you feel like you have no support during this tragic time, professional help can provide the system you need to start healing.

You Are Unable to Discard or Store Your Pet’s Items
It can be difficult to move on when you have constant reminders of your lost loved one. You do not want to forget about your pet, but you also do not want to be stuck in the grieving process because of these constant reminders. If you have been unable to store or get rid of your pet’s toys or bed, consider meeting with a counselor to talk about your feelings and thoughts.

You Imagine Seeing or Hearing Your Pet Around the House
Do you ever think you see or hear your pet in your house now that he is gone? It is common for people to experience visions or sounds that remind them of their loved ones after losing them. If you continue to think you see or hear your pet, you may want to visit a professional to talk about your experience and start moving on.

You Want to Talk to Someone
Sometimes you just need someone who will listen to you. It can be difficult to share your thoughts with your friends and family members, but a counselor can provide the support you need to share your emotions and start feeling better.

How Dogs Mourn

Loving Eyes

Nobody wants to lose one of his or her beloved pets. But it is important to realize that your human family members are not the only ones experiencing this loss. Pets also go through this loss. If you have multiple dogs, it is important to keep their wellbeing on your mind while going through the grieving process.

Dogs exhibit signs of mourning similar to those exhibited by humans. If your family loses one dog, you may find that your other dogs start behaving differently. Many dogs start showing signs of depression after experiencing a loss. This may mean losing interest in hobbies, experiencing a loss of appetite, and spending more time sleeping. Finding some form of support can be beneficial for both you and your dog during this time.

Grief Affects People in Different Ways
You never know how a loss will affect you until you experience one. It would be nice to have guidelines to keep in mind during this time, but grief is a unique experience for everyone and what works for one person may not work for another. It is important to take your grief seriously so that you can understand how it is affecting you. Some people feel sad or depressed after losing a pet while others feel lonely and confused. Grief can also exhibit itself in anger and a wide range of other emotions.

Loved Ones May Not Understand Your Grief
People who do not have pets may not understand just how deeply it can hurt to lose one or how a pet becomes a member of the family. If you have loved ones who do not understand your loss, it may be difficult to deal with your grief and start the healing process. Taking your grief seriously is important for showing these loved ones that this does have a big impact on you and they should not take it lightly, even if they do not understand the emotions behind it.

Support is Essential During This Time
Even if your loved ones do not understand what you are going through, it is important to have some sort of support system during this time. Getting support from people who know what you are going through can help you learn how to start moving on with your life. Look for support groups for people who have lost pets to get some insight.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory can help you plan a pet cremation or pet burial to say goodbye to your lost loved one. Contact us at (817) 478-6696 for information about our DFW pet cemetery.

The Benefits of Having a Funeral for Your Pet

Losing a loved one is never easy. When that loved one is a pet, it can be difficult to find closure and feel like you have a chance to say goodbye. Pet burials make it possible for families to have one last event honoring the life of their lost loved ones. Some of the benefits of pet funerals include:

Honoring Your Pet
The animals we welcome into our homes are much more than just pets; they are members of our family. That is why it is important to honor them the way we honor other family members when they pass. Having a funeral is the traditional way to honor a lost loved one and it is a great option for the family after losing a pet.

Saying Goodbye
Sometimes we get a chance to say goodbye before our furry family members pass on. Other times it is sudden and unexpected. No matter what happened to your pet, you can get a chance to say your goodbyes by having a funeral. This type of event provides a platform for family members to give their final thoughts and say goodbye.

Giving the Family Closure
Funerals may be about the ones we lose, but they serve more of a purpose for the ones who are still here. When you lose a pet, it can be difficult for the entire family to feel like they get closure. This is especially true for younger family members who may not have had any experience losing loved ones. Funerals provide closure and help the healing process start.

Celebrating the Memories
Inviting friends and family to say goodbye to your pet is a great way to get everyone together to share special memories. You can each share your favorite story involving your pet to spread some laughter and spark some light in this dark time.

Facing the Difficult Decision to Euthanize Your Pet

If your pet is ill, you may face a difficult decision. Do you allow your pet to continue facing pain, or do you make the choice to euthanize your pet to end his or her suffering? Euthanizing your pet is extremely difficult, but in some cases, it may be the most loving gift you can give to your beloved friend. Once you make the decision, you will need to consider other factors, like how to say goodbye and what pet burial option is right for your family.

Signs That It May Be Time
Your vet will help you make the important decision to euthanize your pet, but the symptoms you notice at home will play a major role. If your pet is living with chronic pain that cannot be treated with medication or if he or she has chronic diarrhea or vomiting issues, then euthanizing your pet may be the most humane option. The same holds true if your pet struggles to stand or walk or has lost interest in favorite activates. You should also let your vet know if your pet has chronic breathing issues. Your vet will consider your reports about your pet’s symptoms as well as lab work and overall diagnosis when advising you about euthanasia.

How to Say Goodbye
Making a plan for saying goodbye to your pet can ease the pain associated with the decision to euthanize him or her. It can be helpful for each family member to have private time with the pet to spend some special moments together. Before the procedure, have a plan for burying your pet. You can choose a pet burial or cremation with or without a memorial. It can help you during your grief to have a place to visit your lost pet, so consider having your pet’s remains placed in a pet cemetery.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory is here to help you make decisions about your pet’s final resting place. Let our compassionate staff explain your options for pet burial and pet cremation. You can reach our Dallas-Fort Worth location at (817) 478-6696.

How to Tell Your Kids About the Death of a Pet

The loss of a pet is devastating to the entire family, but it can hit kids particularly hard. Often, it falls on parents to deliver the news about the passing of a pet. How you address the issue with them plays a big part in how they cope with the grief.

The most important thing you can do is to be upfront and honest when telling your kids that your family pet has died. Don’t try to hide the news from them or use euphemisms. Doing so will only confuse them. Let your kids see that you are grieving, too, and ensure them that it is OK to feel sad and to have questions. If you must euthanize a pet, consider explaining what to expect to kids beforehand, so that they have a chance to say good-bye to their friend.

Involving kids in pet burial planning can also be helpful. Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory can help you entire family pick the right pet burial or cremation option for your pet. You can reach our DFW pet cemetery by calling (817) 478-6696.
