For Consumers: Loss of a Pet

A Special Bond

IFDF PetsPets form special bonds with their owners which translates into becoming a part of the family. Upon the loss of the pet, many emotions result and need to be addressed with regard to the loss and resulting grief process. It has been said that of the pet owners world-wide, 85% consider their animals as family members, so it is logical that these owners will face the death with similar feelings of grief and emotions upon the death of their pet.

Many options are available when you are faced with the death of a pet. Special pet cemeteries are available, burial and/or cremation services and special ceremonies should be considered. The funeral director is a helpful resource who can guide you through this process and offer services to assist.
