After we brought her home I went about arranging her pet insurance, joining a Vet's practice and setting up her health care plan for vaccinations and health checks. We went out and bought her a bed, some food and toys and made sure our home was ready for her arrival, and I also thought about the future - although a long way off - and about what we would do if anything happened to her.
In Bradford on Avon is the wonderful Charlie's Parlour. Owned by Paul & Rob, Charlie's Parlour is the only APPCC approved Private Pet Cremation Service in Wiltshire. They guarantee the individual cremation of pets and companion animals and give your pet the dignified send off it deserves, because after all - pets are family too.
In the same way that you think about health care options for your pet, it is worth considering their end of life care and the arrangements that can be made following their passing, and also to know that you do not have to leave your beloved pet with the Veterinarian. Paul and Rob offer a wide range of services including collection of your pet from your home or Vet's practice for cremation, as well as life casting and commissioned sculptures of your pet, or sandblasted pebbles personalised with your pet's name to mark their final resting place.
