When a pet dies
After a pet dies, it can be a very difficult time. They are often an integral part of your family which can make knowing what to do when a pet dies even harder. Everyone deals with pet bereavement differently, this could be the first time some members of your family have experienced a death which is why pet funerals at Full Circle are tailored to your requirements.
Depending on the pet’s breed and how your pet died, there are a range of funeral options available. This process will start with a conversation between you and the veterinarian professional involved as your pet comes to the end of its life. With the right support you can start to consider what is best for you and your and family.
The loss of a pet is an upsetting time and some families prefer for the funeral to be planned beforehand and take place without them. In many areas, this can be arranged by the veterinarian professionals involved. In other cases, families and friends may wish to be involved (in varying degrees) in planning the funeral and may wish for few, or many, people to be present when the funeral takes place. As with any funeral, this involvement may help to support you in grieving for your pet.
If you choose Full Circle Funerals, we will support you to consider your choices to create a funeral that best reflects the life of the pet that has died. We will help you as much or as little as you want and will make no assumptions about what is right for you.
We work in a flexible and person-centred way so that we can support you even if you aren’t sure what you want, or if you change your mind.
There are also many memorial options available, such as moulded paw-print art or jewellery, bespoke headstones for burial, keepsakes that contain the ashes of your pet, memory books and portraits. We have information available on all of these and can tell you more about these when the time is right for you and your family.
“I just wanted to thank you for the lovely experience this morning. The place is done out lovely and really makes you feel comfortable and welcomed, its bright and homely, not what you imagine a funeral director to be like. The staff that dealt with me was so kind and made me feel so relaxed and even sat down to have a chat with me. I was so happy with my experience, and I couldn’t have asked for better customer service and friendliness at such a hard time. Thanks again.”
