As pet owners, we endeavour to make sure that our faithful companions stay fit and healthy, enabling them to live to an old age. Unfortunately, our pets do not live as long as us and at some point, we will have to prepare to let them go. Sadly, few of our pets pass peacefully away in their sleep. Therefore, we all wish to do the right thing at the right time, fulfilling our responsibility and commitment in their final days. As your vet, we will discuss all treatment options available for your pet to relieve their symptoms, but there will come a time when all forms of treatment have been exhausted, or you feel your pet is suffering too much. You and your family may wish to talk with your Vet to help you all come to this final decision; in this case, please contact us to arrange an appointment. We have members of staff at our Kesgrave and Berners street surgeries, trained in pet bereavement counselling. Should you feel you need to discuss the loss of your pet with someone, please contact us and a member of our team will contact you to offer support where they can.
We guarantee that your pet's body will be handled with dignity, care and respect from the moment it is put to sleep to the moment it is placed in the crematoria. When an individual cremation is requested, that is exactly what happens, giving you peace of mind at a time of great sadness.
We also offer a cremation service, provided by The Cambridge Pet Crematorium, with a choice of options including communal or private cremation.
Should you wish to have your pet's ashes returned to you, a range of caskets, scatter boxes and urns are available, as well as engraved nameplates. Please speak to a member of our team for more information.
At a time of great sadness Orwell Vet Group is able to provide the best possible care for you and your pet.
