The loss of a beloved family pet is a heartbreaking time for everyone involved, no matter the age, species or length of time the pet has been owned we appreciate that this is a difficult and emotional journey. We feel exactly the same about our own pets and we empathise with our clients having got to know them and their pet along the way. We understand that many owners feel it is important to have a safe space provided to remember their pet and share their experience with other owners. We have therefore decided to create this memorial page as a lasting memory to our animal friends who have passed on.
This page is open to those whose pets have died, been lost or stolen and to those who have sadly had to be rehomed.
If you would like to dedicate a space to your beloved pet, then please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or visit us at the practice and let us know that you would like to have a memorial created. Feel free to send us any photos you wish to be included and we will be happy to upload them.
Having a pet go missing is an incredibly stressful and worrying time for any owner and many people find the feeling of helplessness to be particularly distressing. Whilst we hope that you never have to experience the worry of a beloved pet going missing, there are a few things you can do if this happens:
If you have found a stray animal, you can also do the above things to try and help reunite them with their owners.
Having your pet tagged and microchipped can dramatically increase the chances of you being reunited should they go missing. It is routine for rescue shelters and veterinary practices to scan all stray or found animals for a microchip to see if they have an owner, in many cases they can be reunited the same day! Please remember to contact the microchip companies and let them know when you move house or if your pet is rehomed to ensure they are able to contact you.
Whatever the circumstances of your loss, we understand that the impact it has on affected families can be severe. Our practice is here to support you through this difficult time and there are many dedicated resources available specifically for pet owners through other organisations.
