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.

Pet deaths are often devastating for the whole family, so pre-planning a funeral for your 4-legged family member may be one of the last things that you want to do. However, taking this step can help make the process easier for your family once the time comes. Continue reading to learn why your family should consider pre-planning your pet’s funeral.

To Have Plenty of Time to Plan

When a beloved pet dies, it can feel overwhelming to have to make decisions while trying to follow the wishes of every family member. By choosing to pre-plan a pet funeral, you and your family can discuss whether you would prefer burial or cremation, where you’d like to lay your pet to rest, where you’d like to go for funeral services, and if you’d like a custom memorialization.

To Help Minimize Funeral Costs

Choosing to plan your pet’s funeral in advance gives you time to consider all your options. In this way, you can determine how much you can spend on the services and create a suitable budget. Taking these steps before your pet passes on provides you with plenty of time to decide which services you would like and which provider you prefer.

To Allow a Smoother Transition

Planning a funeral in advance can help you avoid choices and actions that you may look back on later and wish you had done differently.

Choosing Cremation for Your Pet

Pet cremation and burial are both respectful, dignified ways of saying goodbye to your pet. Many bereaved pet parents choose cremation because they want to keep the ashes of their beloved animals close to them, although the burial of ashes is also an option.

If you select cremation for your beloved companion, you’ll be asked if you prefer communal or private pet cremation. Communal cremation means that several pets are cremated together and buried in a communal grave. Private cremation means that each cremation is done individually. You will receive the cremains in an urn to keep in your home or to scatter if you prefer.

How Families Can Support Each Other After the Loss of a Pet

Grief brings different experiences for each individual. After the loss of a pet, it’s not uncommon to experience numbness, disbelief, shock, anger, and sorrow. A pet death can affect family members in different ways, especially since it’s not unusual for one family member to have had the closest bond with the pet. During this difficult time, families can come together to offer support and reassurance.

Respect the Need for Silence

It’s often thought that reassurances must be verbalized during a time of grief, but speaking and listening may be too painful for some family members after a pet death. Sit in silence with your loved one and offer a comforting hug. A loving touch may be all that’s needed to show your support.

Talk When the Time Is Right

As time passes, your family may be willing to talk about your beloved companion. Some individuals may repeatedly express disbelief and may blame themselves for the death. Know that your words might not convince them otherwise, but will still be welcome. You should freely express your own reactions to the loss when the time is right.

Explain Death to Children

Young children do not yet understand the permanence of death, but your family should still avoid telling young children that the pet simply ran away. However a pet leaves a family, children feel the sharp pain of loss. Helping children to understand the finality of death allows them to grieve in a natural way, without holding on to false hope. Keep your explanations simple and avoid using euphemisms. For example, telling a child that the pet was put to sleep may make the child fearful of going to bed.

After the loss of a pet, families near Arlington, Texas can turn to Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. We provide respectful pet cremation and burial services to lay your companion to rest after a life well lived. Call (682) 587-2324 to speak with a compassionate and understanding staff member.

Pet Mourning Is Real: Why You Should Let Yourself Grieve for Your Pet

When a human family member dies, the bereaved family often receives an outpouring of condolences and demonstrations of social support. This is as it should be, but unfortunately, the same social support is often lacking for bereaved pet parents. A pet death is always a tragic occurrence from which many people have difficulty moving forward. After the loss of your companion, you should give yourself the time you need to feel your grief.

Pets are family members.

The bond between a pet parent and a companion animal is unlike any other. Pets are much like children in that they rely on their human families to meet their every need. In return, they provide unconditional love that lifts the spirits and brightens the darkest of days. Your animal was a non-judgmental listener who was always there for you. You could count on your pet to provide a furry, scaly, or feathery hug when you needed it most. And now that your beloved animal is gone, you need to let yourself grieve. The gradual healing process can only progress when grief is allowed to naturally develop.

No two pets are alike.

Every pet parent makes his or her own choice regarding whether to adopt another pet or not. Even if you do adopt the same species and breed of pet, you should not feel guilty for trying to “replace” your lost companion simply because no animal is replaceable. Every pet has a unique personality to be cherished. If the time is right to adopt again, reassure yourself that giving another needy pet a loving home is what your lost companion would have wanted you to do.

When a pet death has left you heartbroken, you can find a way to say goodbye with the compassionate assistance of Faithful Friends Pet Cemetery & Crematory. We understand the depth of grief that pet parents experience and we’d like to help your family during this difficult time. Call our pet cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas at (682) 587-2324 to inquire about respectful funeral services and pet memorials.

Surprising Foods that can be Toxic for Your Pets

You can probably name several foods that are poisonous for your pets, like chocolate or onions, but there are many more items in your pantry and refrigerator that can cause animals serious problems. Here’s a list of some of the more surprising human foods you should never give your pet.


Nuts like almonds, pecans, and walnuts can cause vomiting, diarrhea, and even pancreatitis in pets due to the high amount of oils and fats they contain. Macadamia nuts can cause the same symptoms plus weakness, depression, tremors, and hyperthermia. Peanuts are technically legumes, not nuts, so peanut butter is still a safe treat for your dog!

Grapes & Raisins

It is currently unknown why grapes and raisins are toxic to pets, but the effects can be fatal. Avoid feeding these fruits to your pets, because they are known to lead to kidney failure in dogs.

Citrus & Coconut

Citrus fruits contain citric acid, which can cause irritation and even central nervous system depression if eaten in large amounts. Coconut contains oils that can cause stomach upset and loose stools. Citrus and coconut don’t typically hurt animals when given in small amounts, but you should exercise caution if you decide to let your pets eat them.

Yeast Dough

Yeast dough can continue to rise inside your pet’s digestive system, which leads to painful bloating and potentially twisting of the stomach, which is a life threatening emergency. Yeast also produces ethanol, a type of alcohol, which can give your pet the effects of drunkenness.


Most animals have very little lactase, the enzyme that helps digest milk, so dairy products can cause diarrhea and other digestive upset.

Raw/Undercooked Meat, Eggs, & Bones

Raw and undercooked meat and eggs are dangerous to pets for the same reason they are to humans-they contain harmful bacteria like Salmonella and E. coli. Despite the common association, raw bones are not good for dogs. They can choke on them or have them splinter and puncture the digestive tract.


Too much salt consumption can lead to excessive thirst and urination, and even sodium ion poisoning in pets. Effects of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, fever, seizures, and even death. Avoid giving pets salty snacks like potato chips and pretzels.
