Saying Goodbye to your loved ones
Tudor House Veterinary Clinic understands that when the time comes to say goodbye to your beloved pet that it can be extremely difficult and never easy. Regardless of whether it be due to old age or illness the team here at Tudor House are here to support you through this difficult time.
When will I know its time to say goodbye?
Your vet will be able to help you by explaining what can be done medically to help your pet, what the limits are to treatment and what to do when that limit has been reached. However, you as the owner and the person who knows your pet the best will be able to see if they are suffering or if their quality of life has diminished.
We feel you should ask yourself these questions
- Can they still eat, drink, sleep and move around reasonably comfortably?
- Does he or she respond to your presence and greet you?
- Does feeding time attract interest?
Do we get the chance to say goodbye?
Yes of course. We have a special room for you to spend your final moments with your pet and say your final goodbyes. We handle each case individually and understand that each person’s grief is different; however, we will always be, compassionate, honest and patient when the time comes. If you do not wish to be present you can rely on us to treat your pet sympathetically even in your absence.
Once you have said your final goodbyes you can choose between taking your pet home for a private burial or we can arrange for your pet to be cremated for you. We have a wide range of urns and caskets to choose from or you may wish to have your pet’s ashes returned in a scatter tube or even to have the ashes scattered in the garden of remembrance. Whatever your choice, we are here to help and support you through the whole process
