Pet Loss Resources
As you prepare to say good-bye to your precious pet, it’s important that you be educated on a variety of the options and information that’s vital at this point.
First of all, as you were responsible for your pet in life, you also have that responsibility in death. Your pet was yours during their life and their body is yours in their death. With that comes the job of knowing that each aspect of their final arrangements are to be at our discretion and should not happen without a pet parent’s consent. To be educated on what your options are is ours to learn and is our responsibility as good pet parents. The final decision of what you want to do is yours–and not anyone else’s. It’s not for your veterinarian to decide for you–nor to tell you what you can and cannot do with your pet. Unfortunately, in many states, pets are looked as personal property. Therefore, for anyone else to tell you what to do with your own property is wrong and unethical.
Educating yourself on the options and having an idea of what you want to do before the loss of your beloved pet will eliminate much anxiety and give you incredible peace of mind. Filling out a Guide To Planning Ahead will guide you through your options and what to look for as you pay tribute to your special friend.
