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.

Do Invisible Fence Collars 'Shock'?

This great photo below,  of a dog choosing not to "cross the line" of their invisible fence, despite some tempting moose in the yard, prompted this question on social media: "So would it have gotten a shock if it crossed the line?"


Solange, owner of Invisible Fence® Brand systems Saskatchewan, answered: 


"It does not give them a shock. It is a sensation that they just don’t like. It is kind of like a 
chalkboard to us. It doesn’t hurt us to scratch our nails down a chalkboard, but we sure as heck won’t do it because we cannot stand the feeling of it. So think of their boundary as their chalkboard. Even if I had to turn a dogs collar up onto the highest setting because he was that stubborn, the greatest amount of static in his collar is no more then when you drag your feet across carpet. But a rate of vibration is added into it creating that sensation that they just don’t like. When we begin the training with your pets, it is on a low rate of vibration only which you and I cannot even feel in our hand.



I always put the collar in the owner's hand so that they can feel what they are feeling. You will look at me and tell me you don’t feel anything. And that is the point. You will watch me teach your dog to learn and understand what and where his boundaries are on a setting that you and I cannot even feel. Eventually, his collar settings will change in order to keep him within his boundaries should he be tempted to leave. But that is not done until he gets to know his boundary and which way to turn at his boundary 100%. We let him make all the mistakes while learning on a setting that we cannot feel. This way, they have a full understanding of their boundary before their settings are put to a containment level designed for each and every dog individually. Their containment settings will be customized based on their breed, size, age and personality. Perhaps one of your dogs are timid and the other one is the opposite. Then their collars will be set very differently. The training will be done differently as well."

Solange Continued...

" This is one of the many reasons that makes us so different from anything else out there. Because we have the ability to set the collar on a low rate of vibration only allowing the dog to learn. Dogs thrive on their training. They love to learn new things. So when they get to learn at something that is only making them aware but not startling or scaring them at all. Research has been done with invisible fence brand products where researchers and veterinarians hooked dogs up to machines that measured their heart rates and stress levels. Not one single dog was ever under any kind of stress or duress while going through the training. Because it is done in such a kind and gentle way. This is why animal behaviourist and veterinarians support invisible fence brand products and the training. The training was designed by animal behaviourist specifically to go with our systems. Thank you for asking this question I hope that this was helpful. You can call me anytime and I can explain further."

  5. Have your pets traveling 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.

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 traveling with our furry family members we often forget to check to see if the environment is safe for them to travel 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 traveling 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.

Trusted Saskatoon Discusses Gravol for Pets

Keeping your pet healthy is your #1 priority 


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 vets 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.  




 


 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.
