Welcome to clients of Parkway Veterinary Hospital who have been referred to us for in-home care! We look forward to providing you with supportive and compassionate care in conjunction with Parkway.
We will help you navigate your options for caring for your pet's body after he or she has passed away. This is a difficult and emotional time......some questions to consider are:
Once you have said your good-bye's and are ready for us to move your pet's remains from your home, we will carefully wrap them in a soft blanket and carry them to our vehicle. For medium sized and large dogs we have a stretcher that we will use to carefully accomplish this. You may include any toys or flowers or other mementos that you wish and you are welcome to accompany us out to the vehicle if you would like.
Whichever type of cremation you choose, your pet's body will be lovingly and respectfully handled as we transport it to be received by the cremation facility. As with the rest of the euthanasia process, we take great care in tending to the aftercare of your pet's remains with dignity and love, and fully respect how important this is.
If you would like some ideas of ways to memorialize your pet, we have compiled some options on our Memorializing page
If you need support after (or before) the loss of your pet, you may want to read our Grief Support page.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions. We are here to help.
