🐾🐁🐩🐶PET DEATH🐱🦄🐦🐾 Pets are family.💕 You can do for them in death just as you would for your people... from Aquamation to Natural Burial.
Oftentimes, our pet dies under the observation or care of a veterinary professional. If this happens, you do not have to use their recommended provider. You have choices. Veterinary clinics often have agreements with one primary disposition provider, and while that can be helpful, in grief many pet parents dont think to have their own action plan in place.💙
When my cat Bella could go no further, a vet came to the home & euthenized her while in my lap. I buried her at a natural burial park the next morning. You can find a vet to come to you, or if your pet dies at a clinic, you can take your pet home for your family and other pet family members to recognize the loss.
Ice is not typically needed, but if I transport a pet for a family, I always have a freezer baggy on hand if situation warrants it.
Burials can take place on your family land, at a pet cemetery, or some natural burial parks. Ask a local funeral person for help. 💧Aquamation, aka water cremation, is the more progressive & eco friendly alternative to flame cremation. It is a gentle process that uses a small amount of water+lye to reduce the body to bone, like w/flame cremation, but the results, as seen in the photo, are a smaller white powder as opposed to a chunky charred powder.🧡 It is up to us as pet lovers to be prepared for the end of their life, know our options, and have a plan for them.
