How You and Your Family Can Celebrate the Memory of Your Pet

The loss of a pet is a difficult and emotional time, and pet owners need time to both grieve and properly honor the memory of their lost loved ones. While nothing can lessen the difficulty of this experience, many pet owners begin their paths to healing by celebrating the memory of their pets. Here is how you and your family can honor the memory of your deceased pet.

Gather Together
If you have lost a pet, you may simply want to be alone. But gathering your friends and family together to remember your pet is one of the best ways to honor your dog’s or cat’s memory. Many pet owners find solace in working with a pet cemetery planning their pets’ memorial services, entombment, burial, or cremation. Funeral homes also offer bronze and granite memorial markers so you can go visit your beloved pet at the cemetery.

Remember Good Times
Losing your pet can conjure feelings that are difficult to deal with. Just like with the loss of a family member or close friend, the loss of a pet can bring out feelings of sadness, anger, and loneliness. While the grieving process is important, it is just as vital to celebrate the unique and lasting bond between you and your pet by remembering the good times you had together.

Retain Keepsakes
One way to hold onto the best memories of your pet forever is to create a scrapbook. Many proud pet owners have hundreds of pictures of their dogs and cats beginning when they were just puppies or kittens and going all the way up through adulthood. By gathering your photos, you will have the chance to relive your pet’s happiest moments. Each time you look through your scrapbook, you can remember how your pet had a special place in your heart.

At Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory, our compassionate and experienced staff is dedicated to helping each client honor his or her pet through our customized memorial and funeral services. At our family-owned pet cemetery, our mission is to provide loving care to our customers and their beloved pets.

If your pet passes away at home, place your pet in the coldest area of the residence. You should then place your pet on top of plastic and covering him or her gently with a towel or blanket.

If you choose cremation services, you have the option of burying your pet’s remains or selecting a memorializing urn or piece of jewelry to keep close to your heart at all times.

Can I Prepare Ahead of Time?
Yes. Many pet funeral homes and cemeteries offer pre-planning options for pet owners who want to plan a pet’s services ahead of time to avoid extra stress during their times of grief. Speak to your funeral home about how to plan your pet’s cremation or burial and memorial ceremony.

When a pet dies, every member of the family is affected, including other pets.

If you have recently lost a pet, the following information may help you care for the other pets in your household:

Learn the Symptoms of Grief

Your pets’ understanding of loss may be different than your own, but your pets are sure to notice the absence of their canine or feline sibling and likely to be affected by it. Following the passing of one pet, you may notice several behavioral changes in your other pets. These include changes in appetite, sleep patterns, energy levels, and pastimes. Your pets may seem especially quiet, and they may either seek more attention from you or want more alone time than usual.

Understanding the Grief of Losing a Pet

Group of pets - Dog, cat, bird, reptile, rabbit,rodent

Your pet is a treasured part of your family. It’s natural to feel sorrow, grief, and loss when it comes time to lay your pet to rest. Understanding the grief you and your family will feel can help you to embrace these feelings while remembering the good times and happy memories you shared with your pet.

Embrace Your Grief

It is completely normal to feel grief following the loss of a pet. It is not juvenile, unnatural, or unnecessary. Allow yourself and your family, especially children, to feel and work through this grief. You may feel intense sadness, you may cry, and your children and family members may do the same. There is no need to “be strong” or “get over it”—grief is a natural way to acknowledge your pet’s value in your life.

Understand What You Will Feel

Understanding that you may feel many different emotions, some conflicting, can help you to work through each feeling as it comes. You may feel guilty or responsible for the death of your pet, or even anger over the illness or accident that caused their loss. At other times, you may have trouble accepting that your pet is gone or feel intense depression and sadness. Once your companion has passed, you may even feel relief that your pet is no longer suffering.

Cope With Friends and Family

Following the loss of a pet, turning to others can help you through your grief. Share happy memories of your pet with friends and family. Allow yourself and others to speak about feelings of loss and grief. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to someone close to you, you can visit your veterinarian, online support groups, or a religious institution for support.

You want to remember your pet with the fondness and love they deserve. Contact Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery and Crematory at (817) 478-6696 to inquire about our pet burial, cremation, and memorial services in Fort Worth. Please read through our blog for more information to help you cope with pet loss and grief.
