Huntington Beach, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/21/2016 -- According to Crossroads Animal Emergency experts, there are times when a pet is so sick or in such pain that a very difficult decision must be made: whether it is time to help the pet find peace. While euthanasia is always the most difficult thing for pet owners, it is sometimes the right choice when a pet is ill or seriously injured. In a recent interview, the experts at Crossroads Animal Emergency discussed how they treat every pet with the utmost compassion, respect and dignity and support the owners in this difficult decision.
"Whether you are faced with the heart-aching decision of pet euthanasia right now or you want to plan for the future, we can help and we are here for you and your pet," note Crossroads Animal Emergency vets. "The pet euthanasia process includes making decisions on how you want to memorialize your pet and celebrate the animal's life." These include decisions on whether to have the animal buried and where or if cremation is a better option.
"Pet owners must consider whether to bury the pet indoors or outdoors; where the burial plot will be located; if the burial area has access for visitation; and whether a casket will be used. If cremating, the owner must decide if the pet's ashes should be returned."
Many pet owners do not realize that it is also possible to have a wake or visitation and invite family and friends. This event allows loved ones to celebrate the life of a wonderful and loving friend as well as share special memories and say final goodbyes. Some owners also choose memorialization products such as lockets to hold hair or ashes, memorial rocks or garden flagstones, jewelry with a paw or nose print, or a decorative urn or piece of art.
