Bereavement & Post-Mortem
Should the worst happen, Ashfield House Veterinary Hospital can still assist by organising a post mortem should this be required. We work closely with the University of Nottingham to provide an independent post mortem service.
During weekdays, we can arrange home visits for euthanasia. We use a reputable pet crematorium afterwards, and ashes can be returned individually for scattering, or in a casket. Some easing of the pain can be gained by discussing and deciding your wishes before a crisis happens e.g. When might we consider euthanasia? Will we want cremation? How do we help the children cope?
We stock a book that helps younger children to understand and deal with the loss of a pet and there are useful pointers for parents. It is called ‘Missing my Pet’.
