Pets are part of our family and the sense of loss we all go through cannot be underestimated. Besides feelings of sadness people often experience various emotions such as Guilt, Anger, Shock, Denial and Depression.
When the time comes to say goodbye most of us are deeply affected by the loss of our pet. The grieving process in the loss of a loved pet can extend over a period of time and most of us have to make the impossible decision to put our pet to sleep.
Even though it is the last act of love we can offer to our pet and is made in their best interests we tend to look for ways to question our decision and can have feelings of guilt.
When the sad time comes, you will be asked by one of Bisley Veterinary Surgeries staff members as to what you would like done with your pet once he or she has passed. The options available are home burial, individual or communal cremation which we can organise for you:-
- Home Burial.
- Communal Cremation means that your pets’ ashes are not returned to you and they are cremated with other animals. There is a charge for communal cremation, if you would like an accurate costing please feel free to speak to one of our staff members at the surgery.
- Individual Cremation options include the return of your pets’ ashes in either a scattering container or wooden casket. We have a very reliable local company called Dignity that carries out our cremations. They have a number of other services available and their contact details can be found on their website www.dignitypetcrem.co.uk.
For further information please contact the surgery or pop by to ask one of the friendly members of staff.
