Working Through the Loss of a Pet

Pet Loss DFW

The loss of a pet can be devastating at times, but there is light at the end of the tunnel. As time passes, and you face your grief and loss head-on, the heaviness in your heart will feel a little bit lighter. Pet deaths can be just as upsetting as the death of any other family member or close friend. As you find your way through this loss, here are a few factors to keep in mind.

Don’t Feel Ashamed
Many times, outside friends and acquaintances may not understand your deep connection to your lost pet. Non-animal lovers may even seem cold and callous to your grief, but do not let negative comments or people make you feel ashamed. The loss of a pet can take its toll on your emotions, just like the loss of a human loved one. Don’t feel ashamed for your feelings. Don’t hide away in fear of judgment for your sadness. You are allowed to grieve and feel sadness however is best for you.

Grieve and Share Your Stories
Many times, talking with someone who is understanding of your grief and loss is a great way to work through your pet’s death. Hiding away from the world may be part of your grieving process, but don’t let yourself get caught up in negative memories or thoughts. Focus on the happy times and memories you have, rather than your pet’s last moments or sickness. Your pet would be the one to comfort you during your sadness, and they would not want you to be sad over them for long.

Memorialize Your Pet
There are many ways you can honor the memory of your beloved pet after experiencing a pet death. You might inter them at a pet cemetery, or keep their remains in a decorated pet urn. There are several memorial products for pets, from memento boxes to pendants, to help keep your lost loved one close to your heart.

How to Remember Your Pet Forever

Pet Loss DFW

Pet deaths are incredibly difficult to go through, regardless of the circumstances. After a pet’s death, you might be interested in planning a pet funeral and pet memorial to help you process your grief and memorialize your pet. Here are some great ways that you can remember your pet forever via touching pet memorials.

Funeral and Burial at a Pet Cemetery
One of the most common ways to memorialize a pet is a pet funeral at a pet cemetery. A pet funeral gives you and your family the opportunity to say goodbye, and it’s an especially useful form of closure for young children. Choosing pet burial ensures that you’ll have a spot to visit when you want to remember the good times that you had with your pet.

Pet Cremation Urns and Cremation Jewelry
If you aren’t interested in pet burial, you may be interested in pet cremation. The cost of pet cremation is often much lower than pet burial. After cremation, you can still hold a pet memorial service or pet funeral to say goodbye to your pet and reach closure. You can either bury or entomb your pet’s remains in a pet urn, or you can keep the remains in memoriam. You can also choose to scatter the remains in a pet memorial garden, or have the remains made into cremation jewelry.

Personalized Pet Memorial Site
Whether you choose pet burial or pet cremation, you can also arrange a pet memorial site. You can either create a personalized headstone for the pet cemetery, or you can plant a tree, garden, or place a pet memorial bench in his honor at the local dog park.

If you’re interested in exploring your options for pet memorials in Fort Worth, Texas, come see us at Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. We are a licensed pet funeral home, crematorium, and cemetery, and will work closely with you to determine which option is best for you.

Euthanizing Your Pet: The Caring Choice

Pet Loss DFW

When you face the loss of a pet due to serious illness or injury, you might be faced with a difficult decision. Most veterinarians advocate that pet owners euthanize pets that are gravely ill or injured, in order to spare both the pet and the owner from a long, painful pet death. Here is a look at why euthanizing your pet might be the most caring choice.

When Your Pet is in Chronic Pain
If your pet suffers from a medical condition or injury that causes him chronic pain, he may be unable to walk, stand, play, eat, bathe, or relieve himself without assistance. Your veterinarian can advise you as to whether this pain can be controlled by medication. If it is unlikely that the pain will diminish, or if it is likely to get worse or result in a pet death, your veterinarian may recommend euthanasia.


When Your Pet Has a Fatal Illness
Many illnesses are either incurable, or will continue to progress to the point where your pet will be in constant pain and discomfort. Euthanizing your pet can relieve him of this discomfort and spare him a painful death. If your pet is suffering from a fatal illness or disease, your veterinarian will let you know that there is no hope of recovery and that euthanasia is the most humane option.

When Your Pet’s Quality of Life Has Diminished
If your pet is very old and is no longer interested in eating or playing, or can’t walk, constantly soils himself, has significant weight loss, or has trouble breathing or seeing, your veterinarian may recommend euthanasia. While your pet’s death may occur naturally, the remainder of his life might be unpleasant and painful.

If you’ve recently experienced the loss of a pet and are interested in pet cremation, a pet memorial, or a pet burial in Dallas, Texas, come see us at Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. Our compassionate staff can help you plan a fitting pet funeral for your lost pet. To learn more about our services, call us today at (682) 587-2324.

Never Ignore These Symptoms in Your Pets [INFOGRAHPIC]

Your pet is your best friend, and a valued member of your family. It’s up to you to make sure your four-legged friend leads a happy and healthy life, which means regular trips to the veterinarian and plenty of playtime. If you notice any changes in your pet’s health, it is best not to ignore them. Certain symptoms in your pets can be serious and even fatal, so educate yourself on what to look for. A distended abdomen, also known as bloat, can be a symptom of liver, spleen, or kidney problems. The pressure exerted on the lungs makes it difficult to breathe, so take your pet to the veterinarian right away. Frequent vomiting could be a sign that something is stuck in the abdomen, or an indication of tumors or cancer. Check out this infographic from Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory in Fort Worth to learn more about dangerous symptoms in pets. Please share with your friends and family.

Reasons to Choose Private Pet Cremation

Pet Cremation DFW

Cremation is a popular alternative to traditional burial following death, but this option is not only available for humans. Did you know that pet cremation is available once your dog or cat passes away? When you choose pet cremation, you’ll be able to keep the ashes in a pet urn or other type of pet memorabilia.

Many pet owners worry that the ashes they receive will not come solely from their pets. That’s why it’s a good idea to look for a pet cremation facility that offers private animal cremation. With this option, your pet will be cremated individually to ensure that you receive only his ashes once the process is complete. You can then put the ashes into an urn and display them in your home, put the ashes into some type of jewelry, or scatter the ashes in places that were special to your pet.

If you want to learn more about private pet cremation in Fort Worth, Texas, you can contact Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. Call us at (682) 587-2324 to learn about our cremation services.

Signs it May Be Time to Euthanize Your Pet

pet Loss DFW

It is never easy to deal with a pet death. Pets are part of the family, and the loss of a pet can certainly take an emotional toll. But euthanasia is often the only way to end a pet’s suffering when he reaches a certain stage of life. Discover some of the most common signs that it may be time to euthanize your pet.

Your Pet Suffers From Chronic Pain
When your pet is in pain, it’s important to visit a veterinarian to discover the cause and find a treatment plan. If your pet’s pain is unable to be treated with medication, it might be time to consider euthanasia. Chronic pain can make it difficult for your pet to play, walk, eat, or even breathe. When treatment does not work, putting your pet down might be the only way to end his suffering.

Your Pet Refuses to Eat
Dogs and cats might refuse to eat when they are feeling ill or lacking energy. A skipped meal every once in a while is no cause for concern. But if your pet has stopped eating for more than a couple of days, you should contact your veterinarian as soon as possible. Pets are often unable or unwilling to eat due to aging or certain illnesses. If your pet is unable to get the proper nutrients, it might be time to consider saying goodbye.

Your Pet is Constantly Getting Sick
It is normal for pets to exhibit vomiting or diarrhea when they suffer from certain illnesses or digestive issues. Your veterinarian can help you find the right medication or other treatment for these types of illnesses. It is also common for pets to become incontinent as they get older, which is why pet diapers and potty pads are so popular for pet owners with older pets. But if your pet is constantly suffering from vomiting and diarrhea without relief, euthanasia might be the right choice.

If you have recently experienced a pet death, you can learn about pet memorials and pet burials by contacting Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. Give us a call at (682) 587-2324 to start planning a lovely pet funeral in Fort Worth, Texas.
