Losing a pet is never easy, whether they had been a part of your life for many years or a just a few days. Every person copes with the loss of a loved one differently, but you can always depend on your veterinarian to provide information and resources to help you through the grieving process. The staff at Bay East Animal Hospital fully understands how difficult this experience can be, and is willing to answer any questions that you may have.
A part of Bay East Animal Hospital's website is dedicated to the memory of pets that have passed on. If you would like to submit a dedication to your pet, please email your favorite photo of him or her to email@example.com. Also feel free to include a small paragraph about your pet, whether it is a simple biography or a favorite memory.
Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,
that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills
for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water, and sunshine and our
friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals that had been ill and old are restored to health
and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole
and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of
days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content,
except for one small thing: they each miss someone very
special, someone who was left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one
suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright
eyes are intent, his body begins to quiver. Suddenly he
breaks from the group, flying over the green grass, faster and
faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special
friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never
to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face: your
hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once
more into those trusting eyes, so long gone from
your life, but never absent from your heart.
