Identifying Common Diseases That Affect Senior Dogs

The loss of a pet can be a stressful and emotional experience, and although many factors can lead to pet deaths, there are some health problems that are often seen in older canines. Continue reading to learn about common diseases seen in senior dogs.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal (gum) disease is among the conditions most often diagnosed in canines, and it can affect dogs of all breeds and sizes. If periodontal disease goes untreated, it can cause tooth loss and allow bacteria to get into the bloodstream and damage organs. To help keep your senior dog’s teeth and gums healthy, offer him dental treats, practice regular tooth brushing, and feed him foods designed to promote dental health in canines.


Carrying extra pounds can make your pet more susceptible to many health conditions, such as diabetes, joint disease, and respiratory illness. Providing your dog with enough exercise and a healthy diet is essential for helping prevent obesity in your pet.


Joint disease is a common problem seen in aging dogs, and arthritis develops when the cushioning cartilage that normally protects the bones of a joint begins to break down. This condition is irreversible, but there are several things that you can do to help slow the aging of your dog’s joints. First, try to keep your canine at a healthy weight to prevent excess strain on his joints. Also, bring your pet to the veterinarian regularly for examinations and be aware of the signs of joint disease in dogs, such as limping, stiffness, and reluctance to climb stairs. Finally, ask your veterinarian about foods designed to promote joint health in canines.


Dogs are vulnerable to many of the cancers that humans are, such as lymphoma, melanoma, and bone cancer. Because early detection and diagnosis can help dogs survive cancer, it’s important to bring your pet in for annual veterinary exams.

Answering Common Questions About Pre-Need Planning Services for Pets

Funeral pre-planning isn’t just for humans. You can also choose pre-need planning for pet burial or cremation. Many families have questions about pre-need planning and what it requires. Here are the answers that every pet family needs.

What is involved in pre-need planning for pets?

Pre-need planning is similar to funeral pre-planning for humans. You make decisions about how you will handle your pet’s remains after he or she passes. You can determine if you want cremation or burial, and if you choose pet burial, you can choose the type of plot you want. You can also make decisions about things like urns, memorials, or other tributes you will want for your pet. Your plan can be very detailed, or you can simply make the basic decisions and choose to fill in the details when the time comes.

Why should I pre-plan for my pet’s needs?

The loss of a pet can be a very stressful time. Having to deal with making arrangements for your pet burial or cremation can be overwhelming in the midst of your grief, and you may make choices that you come to regret later. Pre-planning also helps you understand the costs associated with burial and cremation, so you can be prepared. With a plan in place, all you need to do is call the pet cemetery when the time comes, and the staff can implement your plan, so you can focus on your family’s loss and supporting each other.

How do I get started?

To make pre-need arrangements for your pet, make an appointment at a pet cemetery to discuss your options. The cemetery will guide you through the process and help you make the choices that are right for your family and your budget. They can also explain what to expect in the immediate aftermath of your pet’s death.

Deciding Between Burial and Cremation for Your Pet

Deciding Between Burial and Cremation for Your Pet

After the loss of a pet, there are many decisions to be made. One of the first ones you will have to face is whether to choose pet burial or cremation. There is no single answer that is right for every family. Instead, you will need to weigh the pros and cons of each to decide which makes sense for your needs.

For many families, budget plays a big role in deciding whether to choose pet burial or cremation. Pet cremation costs can often be less than burial, though you may wish to pay for a pet urn for your animal’s remains. Pet burial involves the purchase of a plot as well as a casket, and in some cases, a pet memorial to mark the plot.

Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory is here to help you make the right choices for your pet. To find out more about the services at our pet cemetery in Dallas, TX, call (682) 587-2324.

Tips for Promoting a Long and Healthy Life for Your Cat

Tips for Promoting a Long and Healthy Life for Your Cat

Pet deaths are an inevitable part of having an animal as part of your family, and the loss of a pet can be overwhelming to even consider. Fortunately, as with humans, you can help your pet live a long life by taking the proper steps to ensure that he or she stays as healthy as possible. If you have a cat, this advice will help you maintain his or her health for life.

Provide the Essential Needs

There are a few basic things every cat needs to stay healthy. Food and water are naturally essential. Be sure that clean water is always available, and provide fresh food at meal times in just the right amount for your pet. If you’re not sure which foods are best for your cat or how much he or she should eat, then consult with your vet. In addition to food and water, your cat can benefit from having a selection of toys to keep him or her busy and entertained. Getting your cat microchipped, even if he or she is an indoor cat, can help prevent the devastating loss of your cat if he or she roams.

Clean the Litter Box Daily

Cats prefer a clean litter box, so cleaning it out once a day and changing the litter once a week will make him or her happy. There is another benefit of cleaning the litter box daily as well. It will be easy to notice changes in your cat’s bathroom habits when you’re dealing with the box each day, which can be important to detecting health problems. If you notice any changes in your cat’s habits, make an appointment as soon as possible.

Make Vet Care a Priority

Your cat needs preventative vet care just like you need regular checkups. Maintain your vet’s recommended schedule for vaccines and exams, and call the vet if your cat has symptoms that worry you. Pet insurance and vet payment plans can help you manage the costs.

When you do need the services of a pet cemetery, call Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory in Arlington. We offer pet burial and cremation, a range of pet urns, and comprehensive pet funeral services. To learn more, call (682) 587-2324.

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.

At Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory, we understand how devastating it is to lose a beloved pet and offer compassionate pet burial services near Dallas, Texas. For information about out pet cemetery and crematory, please call (682) 587-2324.
