What To Do After Your Pet Passes  

 

Life can be difficult after the passing of a pet. One is often faced with sadness, loss and longing. So Willow Creek Pet Crematoriums provides pet pick-up at your most convenient time. It is our hope that this will help ease your load. 


WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOU CALL WILLOW CREEK

 

After you call Willow Creek, we will:

 

1. Arrange a pick up (or) drop off date/time for your pet. *Willow Creek will pick up in Saskatoon and all surrounding communities. 

 

2. Discuss your options, whether you prefer a shared, individual or private cremation for your pet. 

 

3. Discuss whether or not you want your pet's cremains returned to you. If you do choose to have them returned to you, you will need to choose whether or not to purchase a permanent urn for your pet's cremains, as they are an up-charge, or stick with the basic-temporary urn that it comes with any cremation, as any individual & private packages come with Basic-Temporary Urns.

 

4. Willow Creek will then contact you and arrange a drop-off/pick up time post-cremation.



WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR PETS CREMAINS


After you have received your pet's cremains you have many options to consider when deciding how you can honour the life of your loved pet. 


Here are a few ideas:

 

-Store them securely in an urn and place on your mantle or somewhere on display to reflect upon your time with them.

 

-Place them in a necklace that sits close to your heart

 

-Scatter them somewhere your pet loved to be: The park, the yard, the garden, the lake (check your local bylaws/restrictions first) 

 

-Put sealed cremains in their favourite stuffed toy

 

-Bury your pet's cremains with a memorial/headstone/garden stone.

  1. Keep your Pet safe, secure in a well-ventilated crate/carrier.
  2. Warm up with short trips before the long trip to get them used to travel.
  3. Feed your pet a few hours before you leave, and not during travel.
  4. Never leave your animal alone/unattended in a vehicle especially in warm weather.
  5. Have your pets travelling kit ready, including water, bowls, medication (if needed) as well as an emergency kit with bandages.
  6. Make sure your pet has a microchip or some form of identification.
  7. Keep their head inside the vehicle while driving and be sure windows are closed enough so the pet cannot escape.
  8. Bring your pets vaccination and medical records.
  9. Bring your own water!
  10. Consider getting easy to clean seat and floor covers for your convenience. 

These tips are a summary of tips from 10 Tips for Safe Car Travel With Your Pet. You can read the original article HERE.

Giardia




Are you or your pet at risk of Giardia infection? Giardia is a protozoan parasitic infection. Although there are various sources of contamination, one of the most common for our pets is drinking from untreated contaminated creeks, lakes or rivers. Once infected the most common symptom is acute, (or intermittent and can potentially be chronic if left untreated) smelly, frothy, mucousy diarrhea. This parasite can be transferred to humans. So, if you and your pet have recently been in areas at risk and symptoms occur, it is best to be seen by your veterinarian and/or physician. 


Do You Know Where You're Going?



 



When travelling with our furry family members we often forget to check to see if the environment is safe for them to travel to with us. Some things like heartworm are much more prevalent in hotter climates. This is a parasite that you can prevent your pet from getting as long as they are treated prior to exposure. How high is the risk for Lyme disease from ticks where you’re going? Possibly having them vaccinated beforehand would help but know ahead of time is the key. If travelling abroad, will your pet be allowed into the country? If not properly vaccinated and dewormed with specific regulations your pet could be quarantined or not permitted to enter.


Every country has its own rules and restrictions in regards to what a pet needs to be able to accompany you. You can start to sniff out all the answers by clicking here. The government site will also direct you to the correct people you need to contact if you cannot find all the answers you are looking for.


For any other questions if travelling within Canada don't hesitate to give VCA a call.

Trusted Saskatoon Vets at VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Discuss Gravol for Pets

Keeping your pet healthy is the #1 priority of VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Saskatoon. Their Saskatoon animal hospital offers Saskatoon pet owners an affordable dog & cat spay and neuter solution and full veterinary services. Their team is not only caring and compassionate, but they show continued dedication to the cause where they continue to offer an affordable solution to pet care, in this full service Trusted Saskatoon vet clinic. From the first joyous experiences of a new puppy or kitten to the final loving moments with a beloved senior pet, they are with you every step of the way. VCA Canada Frontier Animal Hospital are Trusted Saskatoon Vets and you can find them under the Vets & Pets Category.


The Experts at VCA Frontier Discuss Gravol - Is It Safe for Your Pet?




Just like some people, your pets can get motion sickness. That is   never a good thing when you’re trying to get somewhere and "Fluffy" upchucks in the vehicle. A common medication that people use for themselves is Gravol (main ingredient dimenhydrinate) and the experts at VCA Frontier Animal Hospital often get phone calls asking if they can give it to their pet.

Like most medications, there are contradictions in some pets. It should be avoided in pets with glaucoma, hyperthyroidism, seizure disorders, cardiovascular disease or hypertension. With some pets, it can have some adverse effects and they can become hyperactive, cause vomiting, diarrhea, or central nervous system depression (heart rate and respiration rate can decrease.)


Lethargy is seen quite often (which in some pets may be a good thing while traveling). It is more effective in dogs than in cats. VCA Frontier suggests giving them the medication 20 to 30 minutes before traveling. The dose recommended is between 4 to 8 mg for every kg by mouth and it can be given up to every 8 hours if needed. 


Example: 6.4 kg dog can be given a 25mg tablet. Always try at the very lowest dose to make sure they have no adverse reactions first.  




 



If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call VCA at 306-934-8288.  Make sure to never ever give a human medication to an animal unless you double check to make sure it is safe to give with a veterinary medical professional.

VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Shares Why It's Important To Spay Or Neuter Your Pets

Keeping your pet healthy is the #1 priority of VCA Frontier Animal Hospital Saskatoon. VCA Frontier Animal Hospital offers Saskatoon pet owners an affordable dog & cat spay and neuter solution and full veterinary services. Their team are not only caring and compassionate, but they show continued dedication to the cause where they continue to offer an affordable solution to pet care, in this full service Saskatoon vet clinic. From the first joyous experiences of a new puppy or kitten, to the final loving moments with a beloved senior pet, they are with you every step of the way.

Spaying and Neutering your pet has numerous positive effects! 



Here are just a few:

1) By spaying your female pets, especially before their first heat cycle, it decreases the risk of uterine infections and mammary tumors.

2) For males it significantly reduces the risk of testicular cancer and prostate issues.

3) Reduces the urge to roam to find a mate when the sexual hormones are reduced. Which reduced the chance of pets becoming lost or injured while outdoors, because they tend to stay closer to home.

4) Females will not go into heat; which can leave a mess around your home, or your female cats to be extremely vocal.  

5) Males will be better behaved by not "marking their territory" and become more human family orientated. It reduces the testosterone which can help with dominance and territory aggression issues as well. 

6) It is highly cost effective compared to the cost of having and caring for a litter of babies. 

7) Spaying and Neutering helps the pet overpopulation problem. Which in turn reduced the number of unwanted and stray pets. Strays can have an effect on the community by destroying local fauna, pray on wildlife and cause traffic accidents. 

A common myth you hear about spaying and neutering are that your pet will become overweight. It is true that by altering them they do have a slower metabolism and are less likely to roam, but by watching their food intake and exercising regularly you can control their weight gain quite easily.

Trusted Saskatoon Invisible Fence Brand Expert shares her responses from Facebook questions!

“How does the system work?”

  • The GPS system is installed using a computer with no wire to bury.

“Can this system harm my pet?"

Invisible Fence does not harm your pet. The GPS system ALWAYS allows the dog to run back into the yard without being corrected. This is one of the many reasons why Invisible Fence Brand is so superior to anything else out there. No one else has this technology. And if I have done my job correctly in the training of your dog, along with this technology, your dog will never leave its set boundaries.

Many people are under huge misconceptions about what Invisible Fence does. Technology and training has evolved so dramatically over the years. Invisible Fence is the only company out there that has an entire panel of Phd Animal Behaviorists that support Invisible Fence Brand technology and have designed an entire training protocol that we had to learn as dealers/trainers to put into practice when training a dog to an Invisible Fence. The dog does not get shocked as so many people think, it is a static. It is kind and gentle. Our dogs get excited when they see their collars because they know it means that they have freedom and no more tie downs for them.

For all of your invisible boundary needs, Invisible Fence Brand of Saskatchewan is here to help! Contact them today!
