Further remembrance options and support
Helping you with the loss of a pet
There are many memorial and remembrance options available. This could include planting a tree or flowers, a memorial plaque or stone, tribute photo frames, framing a lock of hair or making a clay paw print.
Ask your vet which options they offer and don’t be afraid to ask them for a memento such as a lock of hair.
