Caring for your pet after they have passed.
Some caregivers find solace in burying their beloved companion at home and we can advise.
But if preferred we can arrange for dignified cremation of your pet after which their ashes can be returned to you if wished.
For over 15 years I have entrusted the care of my patients to the very lovely Meadow Wood Pet Cemetery, Kingsbridge
You may wish to make the last trip with your friend to Meadow Wood yourself. It is a beautiful place, very good for the soul. Julie and the team at Meadow Wood actively encourage this as they know it can help you on your path to accepting your pet’s passing.
More commonly we find clients wish for us to help with aftercare and so, for smaller pets, we will gently and respectfully arrange transport to Meadow Wood and for individual cremations make arrangements for you to bring your friend home. For larger pets we will liase with the crematorium so that their team can visit you at home and arrange transport direct.
And if you would like to have a holding period and say an extended and private goodbye to your pet after they have passed, perhaps by keeping them with you for one more night at home, we will do our best to accommodate your wishes. We know from personal experience what a comfort this can be.
