Time to Say Goodbye
Sadly, being a pet owner and sharing the love and joy that pet ownership brings will invariably mean that one day you may have to say goodbye to your beloved pet.
With all the will in the World when the End is near, we often wish that our pet would receive a loving cuddle from us and quietly go to a painless deep and restful sleep, never to wake again. Unfortunately, that scenario is not always possible and you may have to make the decision to have your pet put to sleep. This is never an easy decision to come to, and we are always available for a chat if you ever have any questions.
We at Warbreck House would like to ease, as much as we can, the difficulties of this decision; on arrival at the surgery we will escort you to a room so that you can wait for the attending veterinary surgeon in private, away from the general public in the waiting room. At no time will we rush your decision, and should you wish to discuss anything with the vet, please feel free. You will be asked to sign a consent form giving your permission. You are welcome to stay with your pet whilst the procedure is done, or if you prefer, you can leave the room; this is an individual preference and we will not make you do something you are not comfortable with. Some people will want to spend time with their pet after the procedure, some will not; again it is your decision.
If you would like a memento (a clipping of your pet's fur), or you would like to take your pet's collar home please mention to the nurse assisting the vet and they will be happy to do this.
Sometimes, people can ring afterwards and ask if we have kept their pet's collar; we do try to keep collars for a little while and any that are not collected are passed on to Animals In Need.
People often have very personal feelings after a pet is put to sleep; no decision is better than someone else's, just different. Please find below the options available.
Home Burial - Some owner's will take their pet home to bury. It may be wise to check your local council's rules regarding this matter.
Individual Cremation - This is a service that we offer and some examples of caskets that are available are shown in the above photographs on the window sill. People occasionally ask, 'How do we know that we are getting our pet back?' - We have been using Leyland Pet Crematorium for many many years and have 100% faith in them. Our own staff members use their services, and over the years we have got to know the staff and know just how caring they are.
Group Cremation - This is a group cremation performed at Leyland Pet Crematorium, the ashes are disposed of as per Health & Safety guidelines.
There is a website available which will answer lots of questions that you may have. There are also lovely pages with poems, pet pictures, and forums for people to chat. If you are interested, click here.
