When It's Time To Say Goodbye

It can be hard to imagine a life without your best friend by your side. However, it’s a sad fact of life that we pet owners often outlive our furry friends. For many of us, there comes a time where we can see the final farewell in the not-so-distant future as our pets become sick or simply too old to continue. Putting time and thought into your pet’s memorial is a great way to honour your pet’s life. Carefully consider each part of your pet’s passing with your family and close friends. This will let you start getting used to the idea of life without your loyal companion and will also offer great relief when the time comes.

Choosing to euthanize a pet is possibly the hardest decision a pet owner has to make. When a senior or sick pet, it can be hard to know when the right is time to say farewell. Your vet will advise when your pet is suffering too much. Your vet will work with you and your family to ensure all viable treatment options are exhausted before considering euthanasia.

There can be a temptation to prolong your pet’s life for the sake of the family; however, you must remember that there comes a time where a sick or senior pet has a poor quality of life. Only your vet is qualified to support you in making this decision. Euthanasia can be carried out at home or at the vet clinic, depending on what your vet offers. Both choices have their benefits. Express your wishes to your vet ahead of time to ensure your needs are met when the time comes.

Pet Cremation Checklist

We’ve got a handy checklist for pre-planning your pet’s cremation. You can take care of as much or as little of this as you like ahead of time. The more you prepare, the easier it will be when the time comes to say farewell.

INFORM THE VET OF YOUR INTENTIONS

Heavenly Paws's expert team will deal directly with your vet if your pet passes away at the clinic, either unexpectedly or as part of planned euthanasia.

PICK OUT A PET CREMATION PACKAGE

Decide whether you’d like your pet cremated with others or alone. Find out more about individual vs. communal cremation to make an educated choice.

DECIDE ON A MEMORIAL KEEPSAKE

Remember your special friend with a pet memorial keepsake, such as a clay paw print, that captures special memories in the life of your companion.

SELECT AN URN

Keep your pet in your home forever. Choose from a wide range of urns and commemorative ornaments to match your pet’s unique personality.

Responsive Service

We handle the entire process, ensuring that your pet's cremains will return quickly, typically within days of your pet's passage.

CHOOSE WHERE TO SCATTER THE ASHES

Think carefully about where your pet loved to spend time. Dogs often have their favorite walks while cats opt for garden hiding spots. Even smaller pets’ ashes can be scattered wherever they chose to roam.

Excellent, caring, empathetic and sincere. This business is 10/10. Saying goodbye to my beautiful Bindie was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Knowing that she was cared for and treated with nothing but respect made this time a bit easier. I have my girl in a necklace so she is always close to my heart. Thank you for looking after my beautiful girl.

Aaron was so very kind and caring. My Zeke was in the best hands. The box and paw prints are lovely.
