Helping You Grieve the Loss of a Family Pet
Death occurs for a variety of reason—perhaps your pet has lived a long and healthy life and nature simply took its course, or an unexpected accident or illness lead you to discuss pet euthanasia with your veterinarian. Regardless of how, Redstone Veterinary Hospital knows that losing a cherished family pet is an emotional and stressful time for their loved ones.
If you have questions about the quality of life your pet is having, please share these concerns with your veterinarian. We can discuss with you different options available, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that ensures your pet’s dignity and comfort during his or her last days.
We will be there for you after your pet passes away and can help with any burial or cremation services that may be required.
Light a candle—Candles are a universal symbol of hope, recognized in most religions and spiritual realms as a sign of love and respect. Take this opportunity to light a virtual candle either in memory of a lost pet or in honor of one during his or her time of need.
Pet loss library—Losing a pet is often just as painful and stressful as losing a human family member. Our pet loss library includes articles written by grief professionals as well as other individuals who have lost a family pet.
Pet memorials—Sometimes sharing aids in the grief process. We invite you to share pictures and memories of your family pet, remembering the good times that you shared.
