One of the hardest things about owning a pet is saying goodbye. Even harder is the prospect of having to decide that it’s time to say goodbye. We are here to help support you & guide you through this difficult & challenging time.
Whatever your needs or wishes, we are able to accommodate you. Our vets and nurses are able to organise an appointment at the clinic, or, if you prefer, a time can be set aside for one of our vets to come to you & look after your friend in the comfort of your own home.
If you so wish, we can organise for your pet to be cremated individually and have their ashes returned to you in a memorial box or urn, or in a scatter box.
It is a natural human process to go through a period of grief. Often the loss of a pet can be made more difficult if other people in your life don’t appreciate that losing an animal family member can be just as devastating as losing a person in your life. Sometimes, the effects of losing a cherished pet on children can be forgotten by the adult member of the family struggling to deal with their own grief.
In these instances talking to people who do understand can help. Dr David Foote is a veterinarian who provides bereavement counselling for pet owners. Consultations can be done over the phone, in the comfort of your own home. For more information visit his website www.davidfoote.com.au.
